Will the driver drop my package inside my apartment or office?
If you wish so, of course, if that's your wish, please specify the floor number in the checkout details. If it's easiest for you to walk outside, you can meet at the front door.
I live in an area where you don't deliver but really want your dumplings, what should I do?
You can either pick the click and collect option or ask a friend to get them delivered for you. It's frozen and can be kept for long periods. We are trying to expand our delivery areas and hopefully will be closer to you soon!
Should I defrost the dumplings before steaming them?
Definitely not. You should start steaming them directly when they're frozen.
How do I cook the dumplings?
You can find our guides to steaming here.
Can I also steam if I don't have a bamboo basket?
Yes, you can find our alternative methods here.
What do I do if I don't have any more paper for the basket?
At every order, we always try to add some papers. It can happen that we don't give you enough. If this is the case, you can simply use some baking paper and punch some holes. If you don't have backing paper, simply spread some neutral oil to avoid the dumplings from sticking.
Can I use a regular steamer from home?
Yes, you can! Simply put some oil or baking paper to avoid the dumplings from sticking and steam them for 6-7 minutes (max humidity and 100°C). Be careful with the truffle brie as it should only be in there for 4 minutes before the cheese pops.
Once you deliver the dumplings, how long can I keep them for?
In general, it's a couple of months! On every package label, there is a "best before" date, we recommend all of our clients to follow that guideline.
Should I eat the dumplings with soy sauce?
We try to prepare and season all the dumplings to ensure that no sauce is needed. We do however have special sauces specific to some dumplings (e.g. the bbq mayo for the burger buns).
If I already opened a pack but did not eat all the dumplings, can I keep them in the freezer?
Of course! If you didn't steam them yet, you can keep them for the same time as indicated in the package, try to seal it as best as possible to avoid the formation of water crystals!
I'm allergic to something, are you sure it's safe?
Every product has a product page with allergen specifications. At our Dumpling Atelier, we try our best to avoid any kind of cross-contamination, however, there might always be a low risk of traces of allergens. Please contact our team for any further information.
