1. Are you available nationwide? 

Home Bao's kitchen is in Cape Town, however our products are now also available in Johannesburg and Pretoria. For Gauteng orders, visit WUNDERCOOK.

2. How long can I keep the dumplings in my freezer? 

Just because our dumplings are frozen, doesn't mean that they are any less fresh or healthy. We suggest you eat them within 4 weeks (if you can resist them for that long!).

3. Do I need to defrost my dumplings? 

There's no need to (actually, please don't). They should go straight from the freezer to the pan or pot. 

4. Do you cater for events and special occasions?

Yes, but we need a minimum of 2 weeks' notice. 

5. Do the dumplings contain any allergens? 

Potential allergens are dairy, gluten, nuts, soya, egg and wheat. 

All locally produced HOME BAO products are free of MSG, colourants and preservatives.(Imported products may contain these ingredients.)
