Chef Danny Bowien's latest mission: a night of mingling, dumplings and good times with fellow food lovers here in New York City.

The Mission Chinese chef gave guests a MasterCard® Priceless® experience at the Tasting Table Test Kitchen in Soho on the night of December 9, showing them how to make his scrambled egg and tapioca pot stickers. Plus, there were green tea noodles, koji fried chicken wings, wine and copies of The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook.

If you missed out on the event, you can at least pretend you were there. Make these recipes inspired by the event for a Chinese feast that doesn't involve takeout:

• Use your folding skills to make savory panfried pork and chive dumplings (see the recipe).

• Gather for a hot pot party, with garlic chive omelets and gochujang-cured mackerel for dipping (see the recipes).

• End the night like Bowien did, with an impressive flaming plate of bananas Foster (see the recipe).

This is just one of many MasterCard Priceless events available exclusively to cardholders, so find out what's coming next in your city and book your next experience now.
