Dexter Chou and Linda Hung – radiance in the kitchen

Congratulations to Dexter and Linda, operators of Radiance Kitchen, who are celebrating their tenth anniversary of selling the region’s most delicious rainbow dumplings at the Mullumbimby Farmers Market.

Dexter lives by the mantra, ‘Persist in doing one thing and doing it very well’ and this has certainly been the case with his dumplings. The couple moved to Mullumbimby from Taiwan with the encouragement of Dexter’s sister, who was already living here, and from the start they were attracted to the natural way of life and the outdoor lifestyle; so different from Taipei.

Keen to continue their connection to their Chinese culture, they began cooking their traditional dumplings at home to celebrate Chinese festivals, before launching Radiance Kitchen. After many requests for gluten free versions, Dexter developed his four different varieties recognisable with their signature vivid colours. 

‘I am originally a graphic designer so the look and colour of the dumplings was very important to me. I researched natural and organic food colourings to develop the four varieties,’ he says. All your senses are in for an adventure: they use turmeric (yellow for chicken), butterfly pea flower (blue for prawn), dragonfruit (red for pork) and kale powder (green for vegetable).

‘Our fillings are all organic, locally-sourced and very good quality and often come from other stallholders, or in the case of prawn, from local Brunswick fishermen. We are hands-on every step of the way, we chop all our ingredients ourselves on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesday and Thursday we prepare and make the dumplings, and then on Friday we are at the markets selling them to our customers’. 

Radiance Kitchen also sell their fresh, delicate and authentic dumplings in frozen packs you can take home to steam yourself. Dexter is very happy to explain how to get the best results. 

‘Dumplings to us, are not just food, they are a part of all family celebrations’.

People have loved going to Radiance Kitchen for their weekly dumpling fix for a decade. Be sure to also look out for their special ‘potstickers and badzang!’ 

Radiance Kitchen is at Mullum Farmers Markets Friday 7–11am.
