Dorothy Huang

As Houston, Texas’ renowned Chinese cooking teacher, Dorothy Huang (chinesecuisinedh@aol.com) has taught thousands of people to embrace Chinese cooking in their own homes. Her first cookbook, Dorothy Huang’s Chinese Cooking, has been reprinted six times. The book’s simple instructions and delicious results have engendered huge appeal and acceptance locally and nationally. Her revised and expanded version, Chinese Cuisine Made Simple, includes 160 mouth-watering recipes and beautiful color photographs. The pictures of Chinese ingredients, condiments, and vegetables are especially helpful to beginners. This book emphasizes nutritional value, easy preparation, and taste appeal. Dorothy's second book can be ordered through Dorothy (see below to order an autographed copy) or through Amazon.

A native of Canton, China, Huang was raised and educated in Taiwan. After completing her master's degree at the University of Houston, she worked as a therapeutic dietitian in hospitals. A short time later, she began her career as a cooking instructor. Huang’s knowledge of dietetics – coupled with her own experience in cooking- convinced her that Chinese food provided an ideal combination of nutritional value, easy preparation, and taste appeal. Throughout the years she has returned repeatedly to Asia to study and hone her skills under distinguished chefs in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand. From Chicago, Illinois to McAllen, Texas, and from San Francisco, California to Boca Raton, Florida, Huang has delivered her own brand of Asian cooking and the latest culinary trends to her eager students. Her reputation as an expert in Chinese cuisine has reached into South America. In Bogota, Colombia, she guided the opening of the upscale China Stars Restaurant. Huang not only trained the chefs, she created the menu, and assisted in planning and outfitting the kitchens.

Dorothy Huang’s Dim Sum Lunch and Walking Tour of Chinatown in Houston, Texas, her signature class, has been featured in regional and national publications. A perpetual favorite among Houstonians, the class frequently has a lengthy waiting list and drawn noted chefs as students. Huang has appeared on many television and radio shows. Highly respected as a Chinese food consultant, Huang has developed recipes for major cookware and food companies. She is a member of the Houston Culinary Guild and the International Association of Culinary Professionals.

“A Culinary Feast and Cultural Adventure”

Huang’s Dim Sum lunch & walking tour of Chinatown in Houston – her signature class- has been featured in regional and national publications. A perpetual favorite among Houstonians, and visitors alike, the class frequently has a long waiting list and draws noted chefs as students.

Start with a sumptuous dim sum lunch in a great Chinese restaurant. Dim sum is an assortment of dumplings, buns, rolls, balls, tarts, puffs, and cakes. These delicious bite-sized morsels can be stuffed with meat, seafood, vegetables, or sweet paste.

The endless and unforgettable array of dishes are wheeled right to your table. Huang will guide your selections and explain how each dish is prepared.

Following lunch, walk through the Chinese mall with stops at a variety of shops and at a Chinese supermarket where Huang takes the mystery out of the market’s ingredients. “The entire dim sum experience proved filling, fun, and festive. It was a chance to be adventurous with dining.”
