As a dumpling expert and the founder of Dumpling Academy, I host classes based on the iconic food. I have hosted the dumpling making show at the Reading Terminal Market as its guest chef for Chinese New Year. I was also interviewed by “What’s Cooking” on 1060 by Hadas Kuznits, of the Philadelphia (CBS) KYW radio station about Chinese New Year. In early 2017, I was invited by Travel & Adventure show, to host a dumpling making competition in the PA Convention Center. I also operate the "Five Spice Tour of Philly's Chinatown" - cultural walking tour with dim sum tasting to Philly Chinatown.
