Valentin is a handsome boy from France, he is a sporty man but also like smiling a lot. While Mag is from Italy, she is a sweet girl and also hard working. She has learnt Chinese for a while in her school. That's also the reason why she wants to come to China to be an au pair, because this kind of experienc can offer her a great chance to practice the language a lot!! And LAP also offer Mandarin classes for them every week! For Valentin, he is studying in University and always obsessed with different cultures, au pair experience for him is more like a new adventrue to Aisa, to China. Of course the long history and rich culture of this country also fantastic for him!
Luckily both of them has found a nice family, When the french boy met the italian girl, they have so much same language to talk when they are doing the pre-job training in shenzhen.

Dumplings（Jiaozi） are a very important dish in Chinese cuisine, whose influence in Chinese culture can never be overlooked or underestimated. Dumplings are also part of Japanese, Korean, and even Russian cuisines (although the way they look and taste is totally different).
Dumplings carry a very special meaning for Chinese people all over the World. It is said that the dish was invented by Zhang Zhongjing, one of the finest Chinese physicians in history. He invented Jiaozi to treat frostbitten ears in the Eastern Han Dynasty. Since then, people started eat jiaozi with different fillings to keep warm in the winter. However Jiao zi is not only a kind of food, but also a kind of culture. Most Chinese families gather together during Chinese New Year Eve celebrations to prepare dumplings nowadays. When Chinese people have guests for dinner, they prepare dumplings to warmly welcome their guests. Making jiaozi is a team work, and needs everyone to work together!
Chinese people believe eating Jiaozi can get rid of the bad luck and get bless from the god.
People often hide coins, sugar, peanuts, jujubes and chestnuts in fillings symbolizing fortune, happiness, longevity and having baby. :P There are different shapes of jiaozi nowadays!
To help au pair get to know Chinese culture, LAP organized this kind of activity, although learning how to make it is easy, get to know the culture and history behind takes long time! :D
Time to eat!!
