4 Levels of Dumplings: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

2 yıl önce

We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur John, home cook Charlene, and professional chef King Phojanakong from the Institute of Culinary Education - to make a batch of dumplings. Once each chef had presented their creations, we asked food scientist Rose to explain their choices. Which one of these piquant potstickers are you sticking your fork in first?
Check out Chef King's pork soup dumpling recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/best-soup-du...

Charlene easily a level 2.5 dumpling chef, bordering on 3, for bringing out her own chili oil and the way she rolls out the dough, and fills and folds her dumplings. Her way of cooking and making her dumplings speaks to me on so many levels. She should return for the other 4 Levels series when it comes to Chinese dishes, *_if_* she feels comfortable making them

The way she mixed the filling was super authentic too; she mixed it only in one direction, which aligns the muscle fibers to give the filling a more tender mouthfeel. King did not. King's assembly technique was also extremely lacking, imo. Kind of sad that no one did any dat, though. Or at least, it wasn't shown.

Charlene is actually a level 3 when it comes to dumplings because you can tell she grew up making them. Not only can she make dumplings based off of pure experience, her technique is a traditional Chinese technique used by many people. You can see that her dumpling wrappers are much rounder and consistent the the actual level 3 chef

@Nomadic813 The first two times I had paella, both were home cooked by very experienced pro cooks. Everything was almost equal, except one thing, the environment. One was made is Spain with my friends and their families, in a really nice villa on the side of a huge hillside with amazing views. The social setting was amazing. The other paella was made with my same friends from Spain, and some family, at my former house in the USA, which is also a very nice place. Ingredient wise, this paella was up a step in freshness and quality from the ingredients used in Spain. The paella in Spain tasted better. It is a subjective taste. I know the paella in the USA was made a little better, and tasted a little better, but yet the Spain paella was better tasting in my head. With this I agree with you. Food is still a science though. If you study and know molecular gastronomy, your cooking skills and taste of your food will crush all others. When you get to this level, the experience outside the food will fall away and the food will dominate (I am saying this generally, not some extreme variations in settings and people). This is what I have learned and experienced after getting involved in so-called, "molecular gastronomy". edit: I forgot to add, molecular gastronomy is still so new, it can't really compare to cuisine that has existed for hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of years. It is just not a valid comparison.

I feel like this episode more than any other; Level 2 and pro chef are actually on the same level but in different contexts. Until Chef King got to the soup (the pigs feet had a delightful street food vibe) I felt like Charlene was giving the authentically best recipe. Though she's young she has probably made dumplings specifically as many times as Chef King has, since she would have spent a number of years making these as a toddler with a parent or grandparent, and very little else until older; compared to King with his (presumably) later start and MUCH broader skill study. I felt like I could have been hearing Charlene from my 90yo Japanese friend when she describes and self-narrates as she makes Gyoza. It felt like a closer experience than Chef King.

@Rowan Melton i once read it, but can't remember now. Think Hawaiian or some other place with strong japanese cooking background, but for sure not chinese afaik. Anyway i have friends in shanghai (xialongbao come from there) and they all agree that garlic isn't a typical ingredient. Same goes form my northern Chinese friends (northern China as the best and most famous tradition when it comes to jiaozi, guotie and all sort of dumplings on general), they all agree that garlic is a Japanese thing. They all say that garlic ruins the balance of the filling with its overpowering aroma.

Francesco Giacomo Pelagatti

If you pay attention, you can in fact acknowledge that Charlene is the only one amongst the three who s not adding garlic to the filling. And that s the traditional Chinese way, as no garlic generally goes in to the filling of Chinese dumpling (a lot of ppl munch on raw garlic cloves while eating dumlings or noodles there). Also xiaolongbao (traditional Shangainese soup dumpling), King s recipe, usually don't contain garlic. Charlene was the best at dumplings, she had the right moves, the right techniques and definitely a strong cultural background.

Charlene is amazing. Does she have her own channel? Ps. The way she mixed the meat is important. A vigorous hand mix of the filling works up and distributes the collagen in the meat and helps the filling stick together.

I figured out a hack for them when I was about 12 lol. I use a heavy pan with a lid that fits oil the cold pan put in the dumplings add a little over 1/4 inch of water and turn it on medium high with the lid on and just cook them until the water evaporates and the bottoms get crispy.

Honestly, as experienced as the pro chef is, he's definitely a novice at soup dumplings. He did not seem to know proper pleating and essentially made a closed shumai instead. While I'm sure it's delicious, no one in their right mind would serve that at a restaurant. Charlene takes the cake here IMO. She understands the rationale behind all the techniques, uses a relatively traditional filling, and has clear solid pleating technique.

@aine It's so strange as something who claim youself as Chinese you have problem for using word gyoza as subtite for jiaozi. You sound too English centric in this view. In Sinosphere the more important is its written form in Hanzi, not its pronunciation.
Faustinus Karyadi
Faustinus Karyadi Yıl önce
@aine jiaozi is general name of it guotie is variation based on the way of how it's being cooked. In uncooked from it's called jiaozi. So I don't think Japanese word gyoza is applied to guo tie only since if you are speaking in Japanese it's used to refer jiaozi in any form, just guotie is the dominant way for Japanese to serve jiaozi. They simply just don't distinguish gyoza based on the way of how it's being cooked. Unlike wonton and bianshi which is already different to jiaozi even in uncooked form.
aine Yıl önce
@Faustinus Karyadi what are you on about the "japanese style" of dumplings does have a mandarin name and it's called guotie - very literally, potsticker. i'm not denying that gyoza is more or less the same word s jiaozi or that it comes from chinese culture but the actual physical equivalent of it is called guotie, as those are panfried/steamed, while jiaozi is boiled in a pot of water
Faustinus Karyadi
Faustinus Karyadi Yıl önce
@aine Also, when you speak Mandarin, you only have word Jiaozi to refer either Japanese and Chinese style. To distinguish it, you should just use 日式餃子 for Japanese one.
Faustinus Karyadi
Faustinus Karyadi Yıl önce
@aine Gyoza and Jiaozi both written as 餃子, and if you speak in Japanese, you only have word gyoza to refer either Chinese style or Japanese style. Like the word Kanji. While in English you use Hanzi for what is used in Chinese, Kanji for Japanese, Hanja for Koreans, but in Japanese all are called Kanji, you just add adjective before it like Chugoku no Kanji for Chinese on, Nihon no Kanji for Japanese one, or Kankoku no Kanji for Korean one. So, in conclusion, Japanese name of Chinese related thing can be used to refer the Chinese version since there is no difference between Hongkong and Xiangkang, or Xi Jinping and Shu Kinpei. Please treat Japanese name for certain Chinese foods as variant of Chinese dialects, and only Japanese food with its native name should be considered as native to Japan. And let me tell you that in Japan gyoza is classified as Chuuka-ryouri (Chinese food), not Washoku (native Japanese food). During Showa Era, stereotypical place that sell ramen, cha-han, and gyoza in Japanese media like movie were mostly China town.

So fun to watch and all three were amazing and so great to see each different method. It's also good to remember that if you are making them for yourself that the method of cooking and the stuffing may differ for individual taste. Yes of course there are more traditional methods and ingredients but it's also good to have some fun and experiment with recipes to suit your own taste or style of cooking, as long as you are respecting where the recipes origin, it's always fun to see what you can do with different experimentations of recipes.

right like, level 3 chef had all the right techniques, but level 2 had the practiced hand. her dumpling skins came out perfectly round and were rolled and crimped perfectly. also SHE MIXED THE MEAT IN A SINGLE DIRECTION, which is actually very important for getting the right texture, something the level 3 chef didn't do.

🤣🤣🤣🤣 this level one guy is my spirit animal. I swear that's how I've made dumplings in the past and his whole "you want a good sizzle (places one in) oh! You're not there yet" comment cracked me up so hard since I've literally done that before.

I like how they had to just find ways to stall for the amateur cook because he used the easy way 🤣

This episode rlly shows how If you authentically cook your food from as scratch as possible you are a pro wo the expensive garnishes and sometimes extra plating.

If his Grandma is anything like mine, John's grandma is probably watching this going "John why can't you find a nice girl like that level 2?"

OMG! It's the Ugly Dumpling Chef (chef King) from Uncle Roger's (deleted) video! I didn't know he's been making ugly dumpling in other videos! LOL! Props to John and Charlene. I see a lot of love and love of family traditions in those dumplings.

(Level 3) He uses hot water for the dough because it makes the dumpling tender after steaming. If you are boiling or making potstickers, use room temp water

Have to say, the chef's skills when it comes to rolling the dough into a wrapper and how he wraps the soup dumplings are indications that he doesn't do it often at all haha.

The level three chefs be like “I’ve been a chef for 29 years” and DON’T even look old even to have been cooking that long😭

As someone who looks at least 10 years younger than my actual age, I feel a bit triggered... Also, a lot of cooks start their careers in their teens, long before they get formal education (if they get it at all).

You can start cooking quite young. 10 isn't unheard of. Getting more control over the reigns at like 15 isn't too unreasonable.

I personally prefer my dumplings with King's style of filling, with added red cabbage, but with John's style of cooking. Seared, and then steamed. The gyoza style. And I prefer that my dumpling sauce has a slight kick to it, just like Charlene's!

Charlene cooks like my mother did, she called the dumplings, Taquitos Chinos, a delight, as soon as the plate touched the table they disappeared. Thank you Charlene

Charlene's mad-skill knife skills and calming voice is top-tier. Bring her back often. I have a new Level 2 favorite, alongside Paps Lorenzo and Gramma Beth. ♥

Elijah ASMR it’s fine, when ur little and ur mom asks u to help make dumplings, ur not actually cooking, ur at most wrapping them or making the wrappers. not even hard or dangerous in any way, shape, or form. plus it’s not like making dumplings is hard

Elijah ASMR basically you learn how to make the dumplings at two and you slowly start to get to the point of you can boil them

Elijah ASMR it's not unsafe to cook at young ages. No one said they were alone, they were supervised. The earlier you begin a skill, the more adept at it you will become. Kids should help make their food so they learn a respect for it and the work that goes into it.
