Junior Chef Challenge - Autumn 2022

Make your own dumpling wrappers! 

If you would like an extra challenge you can make your own flour dumpling. They only require a few ingredients and are easy to mix, but they do take time to roll out and cook. Don’t worry if your dumplingss' are wonky - they will still taste just as good!

The Junior Chef Challenge is optional and aimed at children aged 9+. If not taking the challenge, dumpling packs are available to purchase at the Market.
