“The Humble Dumpling gives me the opportunity to draw on my family heritage and legacy and to add to that, I love that feeling of continuity. Also, I get to work from home, which I love, because I love being home. And I love sharing all of this with others.” – Angie Chong
Food, its history, culture, and trends, has always been a big part of Angie Chong’s life. Apart from having worked in the industry, Angie was raised in a typical Asian home, where food is central to everything. In fact, the preparation, cooking and eating of food with 30 – 40 family members was quite the normal affair for Angie and her family!
However, having spent more than 20 years working in the food industry, Angie left feeling jaded by it all. Uninspired by the hype and competitiveness of the food entertainment industry, Angie had found that she was becoming cynical about something that had once given her so much joy.
Running dumpling making classes provides Angie with an opportunity to rediscover the joy of the culinary arts, and share what she loves most – people, food, and a shared table. Today, Angie’s dumpling making classes are wildly popular and of her passion for people, food, and a shared table is palpable, real, and generously shared with the lucky few that are able to attend her classes.
