My partner and I did a half day cooking class here with translator and guide Lance. This was the perfect activity to end our trip to Chengdu. It was so fun to learn how to make some of our favorite Sichuan dishes. Lance also gave us some fun challenges to do while exploring the market and took great photos of us while we were cooking. It was so fun to learn more about Chengdu food culture!

It was great! Ocean picked us up at the hotel and went with us to the local market. There was a nice suprise, I won‘t spoil it here. But it was good fun.
We where also able to try a lot of things and she explained each thing we saw.
The cooking class it self was nice and causy. Our chef was a great teacher and ocean translated everything. We had a gread time. The food was delicius. We also liked that ocean took pictures of us and send them all to us after we finished.

Highly recommend this cooking class to everyone. We visited a local market and saw so many amazing food and spices! We tried corn cake in the market and it was so delicious. I wouldn't buy this cake if we go there by our own. Lance is a great host. He is knowledgable and explained everything in details.

A professional lady chef taught us how to cook three dishes including mapo tofu. I can cook mapo tofu like a pro at home now :)

Had an awesome time with Lance, our local tour guide. Had an exceptional time tasting cooking and making new friends!

The day started with us meeting him outside our hostel where he took us to a nearby spice market. He showed us all the different chinese spices and locally grown vegetables and meats. Along the way he organized with the stall owners for us to have a taste of a variety of their produce. We where taught some Chinese by Lance, which we used to ask a lady from the spice market to teach us how to fold dumplings. From there we went to the Chilli Cook head quarters for some local tea. After a rest we where met by a professional chinese cheff who guided us in making 3 stunning chinese dishes. We all ate together and shared stories from our home countries.

Everything was included in the price along with refreshments as needed. Great for groups, couples and individuals.

Overall had an AWESOME time that elevated our Chengdu experience to a new level!

Really professionally-run company that provides a great way to experience Sichuanese food and cooking. Our guide Hazel was really friendly and informative and learning to cook from the chef was fun. Can't wait to cook the same dishes at home!

We had a lovely time at Chilli cool! The tour guide Lance was an amazing guide, his English was really good and he did the tour with so much passion, fun and made us feel really comfortable. The market visit was a really nice start of the class, we could try and smell some local products and get to know more about Chengdu/Sichuan ingredients and the food. The dishes we made were delicious and the class was easy to follow. We had a lovely time and at the end we received a really nice surprise. Our experience at Chilli cool with the amazing guide Lance was wonderful! I would definitely recommend it if you would like to know more about Chengdu/Sichuan/Chinese food or just to have a really good time with the lovely people!
