Fantastic class, as usual. I’ve done over 6 classes here, and enjoyed every single one of them. Whenever I have guests, I bring them here. They all have enjoyed themselves.

We did the hand pulled noodle course with Yao and we absolutely loved it! She was a great instructor and we had a lot of fun. Also got great advice for the rest of our Beijing stay. Would definitely come again.

If you want to have a cultural experience with food then doing a cooking workshop at The Hutong is the perfect place. Friendly, unique and fun. You also go way with a tummy full of fabulous food and the skills to make it.
