No trip to China would be complete without feasting on dumplings—but if you don’t speak Chinese, it’s hard to know where to find the best, or even what they’re called. Discover some of China’s favorite dumplings, including Shanghai’s signature xiaolongbao, from your foodie guide—and learn to cook Cantonese shrimp dumplings from a chef. Tour is limited to 10 people for a more intimate feel.
