Watch Dumpling Expert Martin Yan Make Masterful Har Gow

“Push! Pleat! Push! Pleat!”

As part of Lucky Peach’s new “People Cooking Things” series, legendary Chinese chef Martin Yan and Koi Palace’s chef Chen show how to make classic shrimp dumplings — or har gow. Yan, of course, makes all other cooking-tutorial videos seem dull: He rolls and flattens dough with rampant enthusiasm, and instructs how to expertly push and pleat once the stuffing’s inside, shouting, “Push! Pleat! Push! Pleat!” over and over.
