Great dumpling making class! Chef Chao taught us how to make dumplings from scratch. It was very educational. Very fun experience in the Hutongs!

Chef Chao invites you into his houtong and enables you to experience a bit of what everyday life is like in Beijing. First the market to buy ingredients. The market is lively and the food so fresh and enticing I couldn’t wait to learn how best to prepare it. Once we returned to the school we found a complete kitchen set-up. Chef Chao demonstrates in steps and then the students get to work. Our group included myself, my husband, and two solo travelers who were great company. We made three dishes and then had the opportunity to sit down and enjoy them. I am a pretty good home cook back in the US, but with Chef Chao I made an absolutely scrumptious lunch! I couldn’t believe how good it was and the proof was my husband’s meal was just as good and he NEVER cooks, he was just indulging me. That shows what a good teacher Chef Chao is. This is a great way to spend 1/2 day in Beijing

I am an expat in Thailand and had two friends visiting from the US. The introduction in the market was a great way to learn how the Thai shop, what the different herbs and spices are. The cooking class was amazing and instruction was given clearly and fun. I highly recommended this place for cleanliness also. I have been to other schools

My sister and I went this morning for the market tour and then a cooking class with lunch after. He took us to the market and taught us all about the different vegetables and parts of vegetables that are used that is different from the US. We got to watch him prepare a dish, then he showed us the steps in prep, cooking and serving the dishes we prepared. All 3 dishes turned out wonderful. And the dish he prepared was the best duck I have had while I have been in China the last 2 1/2 weeks. I will never prepare plain green beans again! Everything was so simple, so easy and so delicious!
