What You Can Expect

Immerse yourself in the hustling atmosphere of everyday Beijing life by shopping in a local market and bargaining with the booth owners. After arriving at a local family's home, find out the dish you'll be cooking. Depending on the day, it ranges from dim sum (small steamed dumplings like barbecued pork buns, stir-fried noodles and sesame rolls) to other popular local dishes (eg. steamer ginger fish, sweet and sour pork and stir-fried chili beef). Needs of the vegetarians and those with other dietary restrictions can also be satisfied. During the cooking class, you'll acquire the basic skills of how to use woks and cleavers; you'll also get to learn the art of Chinese seasoning, the secret to all these delicious dishes under the guidance of an expert chef.
