Theater walk · Beijing

  • Duration: 5 hours
  • Languages: Offered in English

What to Expect

  • Food market in Beijing

    Your guide will meet you at a central location in Beijing and take you to a nearby food market. Here you can purchase all the ingredients you need for the cooking class while experiencing the bustling atmosphere of local people’s life.

  • Sweet and sour pork

    After arriving at a local family’s home, find out the dish you’ll be cooking. Depending on the day, you can either prepare dim sum (small steamed dumplings like barbecued pork buns, stir-fried noodles and sesame rolls) or other popular local dishes (eg. steamer ginger fish, sweet and sour pork and stir-fried chili beef). We can accommodate vegetarians and those with other dietary restrictions.

  • Dim sum making

    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.

  • Cooking Class

    Once the class is finished, take a seat in the traditional courtyard of Beijing and have a taste of the fruits of your labor.
