We wandered around the hutang to find this delightful cultural center and listened to a fascinating talk by Jerimiah. Unfortunately, because of its name, it is difficult to get directions, as there are many hutangs, but only one Hutang. Fun wandering around, however.

I took it because I also did a cooking class in Thailand since I love asian cuisine in general. I don't regret it! The Hutong class was soooo much fun! They explain many things even why they choose the ingredients to cook with. The instructor was really funny and helpful with the cooking part. In the end, we had a... More

If you like chines cooking and you want to learn more about how to use cutting tools and frying in a wok attending a workshop is fun. In a great atmosphere you can really participate in this workshop and it is fun meeting other participant.

My sister and her 2 children ages 5 and 7 were visiting us in Beijing. We have 4 children ages 2, 3, 5, 7. We signed up for our own dumplings class at the Hutong, since we were 4 adults and 6 kids. It was great and the kids all had a great time! We did so many things while... More

My husband and I and our two daughters, ages 8 and 12 loved this class! We arrived 30 minutes early because we were afraid we'd get lost but the directions on the website made it easy to find. The staff were so friendly--they welcomed us in and let us wait on the roof deck and served us delicious fresh plum... More

Difficult find just Goolge The Hutong, learn how to cook and I'm sure this place will be at the top of the list. Our son who lives in Beijing had looked up this place with his lovely Chinese Girlfriend and whilst given by the organisers excellent directions, they too found it by chance after asking local residents who told them...

We spotted The Hutong on Tripadvisor before we went to Beijing and already had our minds set on the hand-pulled noodles workshop. When we called a day before the class was initially cancelled due to lack of interest but as soon as we called they made the effort to put it back on the schedule. It's a bit difficult to... More

My husband and I just spend a month in Beijing and one of our favourite experiences was a cooking class at The Hutong. We were part of a group of about a dozen people who were shown how to make dumplings from scratch. We all made our own dough, rolled out the wrappers and stuffed them with two different types...

As a local expat living in Beijing, I couldn't recommend a better place for cooking classes or local tours than the Hutong. Naturally, when my parents planned a 10 day vacation in the capital, I signed them up for "Manchus in the Palace: A Walking Seminar at the Forbidden City" with Jeremiah. They were astonished at the quality and value... More
