shanghai  Shanghai Dumplings
Lanlan emigrated from China to join her now husband, Mark Young. With Marks encouragement Lanlan began making & selling her grandmother’s signature pork mince Shanghai style dumplings and can now assemble 300 dumplings in an hour by hand for her booming business and swears by her Chinese butcher, who makes pork mince from female pigs. The dumpling mixture is a combination of pork mince, onion, Chinese’s cooking rice wine, soy sauce, sugar and salt. In the style of a traditional Shanghai dumpling, it has chicken soup or stock with the filling. Lanlan also sells Shaomai dumplings and a Moist Spring Roll at the markets. Shoppers buy fresh dumplings or take home bags of frozen ones, with a set of simple instructions and a container of special dipping sauce.

Floew-raw-FoodFlow Raw Food
For Matt Gallagher his philosophy is that food is the nutrition from the organism of the earth that sustains the organism of the physical human body.  The further our food is consumed away from its natural state the more it impacts on the natural state of the human body.   The human body’s natural state is abundant health and when it is given the natural fuel it requires from the earth then it will aid the natural healing mechanism of the body to bring it back to its natural state.Flow has a range of organic raw and cooked cakes, slices and desserts, with ingredients sourced from local organic suppliers.
