    I would love to learn to make pork dumplings. I love to eat them but have so far been too intimidated to try making them at home.

  • cecrofts  on  7/23/2015 at 10:06 PM

    I love Chinese noodle dishes and would love to add more to my repertoire!

  • zarabeth  on  7/23/2015 at 11:11 PM

    I would love to try making proper Dim Sum. Perhaps if I win one of these books I shall be able to. Fingers crossed 😉

  • JanScholl  on  7/23/2015 at 11:12 PM

    If it's vegetarian, I would like to try it but I love noodles, especially with dark sauces.

  • sillyvy  on  7/24/2015 at 12:10 AM

    spicy beef noodle

  • NikkiPixie  on  7/24/2015 at 2:56 AM

    Pork buns... getting the right dough consistency is tricky. And both the pork recipes mentioned in the interview sound awesome.

  • RuthHarwood  on  7/24/2015 at 3:11 AM

    I'd love to try Satay Chicken xx

  • Sally  on  7/24/2015 at 6:37 AM

    Crispy duck - but the five-spice pork belly on the photo looks and sounds excellent as well.

    I would love to try making Peking Duck. It looks so complicated though

  • zubs1990  on  7/25/2015 at 6:15 AM

    Fried rice is an old classic and I haven't quite nailed it. Also chicken chow mein, and potstickers

  • vickster  on  7/25/2015 at 7:54 AM

    Dumplings and Kunp Pao chicken. I would love to be able to make good Chinese food because there are no good restaurants where I live.

    Scallion pancakes

  • lilham  on  7/27/2015 at 7:05 AM

    Chinese hot pot. The one that Japanese called shabu shabu (which I understood is the more commonly known name in the UK). It's a way of eating I really loved growing up. I wanted it to be part of my family tradition. Now my eldest is 4, she might be ready to cook her own food in a hot pot.

  • JamieK  on  7/27/2015 at 8:29 AM

    Shrimp Egg Foo Young!

    pork dumpling and scallion pancakes would be a great addition to my kitchen skills

  • nadiam1000  on  7/30/2015 at 8:09 AM

    I would love to make pot stickers and dumplings with dipping sauce since we love them and I usually buy them frozen. We do not have good Chinese food around so being able to replicate some of our favorite dishes at home would be great.

  • Deneenm  on  7/30/2015 at 12:18 PM

    really good fried rice. One of the few savory things I love for breakfast - topped with a fried egg is spot on!

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  8/2/2015 at 11:17 PM
