What you'll do

We'll start off by making traditional dumplings that we will be pan frying and boiling. You'll learn how to make the filling from a recipe been passed down from my grandma as well as techniques for folding the dumplings into different shapes. Then you'll enjoy the dumplings that you (yes, YOU!) made as we socialize and drink. At the end of the night I will play you music on guitar and voice from a jazz-inspired selection of original songs and covers.

Meet your host, Cindy

Host on Airbnb since 2015

Hi, I'm Cindy (@cinders_zhang)! Food and music are two of my biggest passions in life. Growing up, I spent a tremendous amount of time in the kitchen cooking traditional Chinese dishes with my mom. As a creative home cook, I love to mix Chinese flavors from my family with Western ideas I discover in restaurants. I love throwing dinner parties, and cooking for my friends and family.

Musically—I'm a vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist. Currently, I perform on acoustic guitar and voice with a repertoire of original music and jazzy spin-off covers of popular songs. My sound is influenced by Jazz, Bossa Nova, and Contemporary R&B. I developed my love for jazz after studying theory and performing with Grammy-winning producer Kamau Kenyatta at UCSD. In the past, I've also studied classical violin and musically directed my cappella group.
