I recently had the chance to go to Pots n Pans Cooking Studio for a cooking workshop as a birthday present. I work in Hong Kong and haven't been able to travel home in the summer, so my partner in the US bought me a Chinese cooking class at Pots n Pans to enjoy while I'm here. I went along with a friend for a roughly four-hour cooking experience, ably directed by Bill, the owner of Pots n Pans, who showed us how to cook some Chinese classics. We were originally hoping to go on the wet market tour as well, but unfortunately the weather was so bad that we had to skip that. Nonetheless, Bill made up for it by extending the class and throwing in an extra snack to try.

The class itself took place in Bill's cooking studio, which is a lovely space, and lasted for about four hours. During that time we learned how to make pork dumplings, hot and sour soup, and kung pao chicken, which were all delicious! Bill was an excellent host; not only did he do a great job of explaining the cuisine, but he also told us some fascinating stories about himself and Hong Kong. We then got to eat the food that we had made and take the leftovers home with us. I would highly recommend this for anyone interested in food who is in Hong Kong as a tourist or a resident.

James, you and Stuart are most welcomed. I enjoyed our chats we had covering so many different topics. I suppose you guys will be in HK for the next year or two. Stop by one of these days and we can do the wet market tour if you guys so wish! Take care! Best regards, Bill

Bill was a passionate and knowledgeable teacher! We had a great time learning to cook a number of classic Chinese dishes - both through the demonstrations and a hands on opportunity taking over the wok. The audio was very impressive - clean and full of all the modern equipment you’d need. Looking forward to coming back to learn some new dishes and styles of cooking. Thanks Bill!

I booked a half day cookery class with Bill and had a wonderful time. He very patiently chatted with me before the class to find out what I wanted to learn, and devised a special menu that really matched my interest in Cantonese cuisine. The studio itself is very modern and clean, and huge.

Bill is extremely personable, and knowledgeable. But you never feel like he's bombarding you with information. Instead, he takes you through his recipes, giving you a lot of the sort of tips and tricks you don't get in cookbooks or online - the sort of knowledge you only get from years of cooking.

I went with a friend who has less experience of Chinese cooking, and we both felt that we got a lot out of the experience, and certainly felt the enthusiasm to try out new ingredients and techniques that previously felt a little intimidating. Highly recommended and we'll definitely be booking another few classes with Bill!

What a great experience! Bill was a great instructor and just a great guy in general to talk with about his story, his passion for food and Hong Kong. He taught each step of the recipe thoroughly and let us cook and the taste of our labour as well. Highly recommended for a date activity, or even corporate event.

We had the pleasure of having a cooking class with Pots N Pans. We had an awesome time and would highly recommend it. Some of the dishes we prepared l would never have thought we could pull off but with the expert advice given it was an achievable task. Looking forward to coming back again!

For Fathers day my wife purchased a cooking experience at PnP and it was such a nice time. The whole time was just pleasant. Bill walked us through some dishes as a demo then we cooked them on our own with his oversight. We chose sichuan cuisine and made spicy sour soup, kung pao chicken and steamed shrimp. Everything was amazing. I'm confident I can repeat the dishes at home and modify them as I want. Most of all Bill (the owner/host) offered sound cooking instruction and was easy to talk to about anything. If you do this, you won't regret it.

Eva and Chris, I am so glad things worked out so well. With the social distancing and lock down, we totally enjoyed the resemblances of normalcy during our class, which we haven't done often enough these days. Come back with the kids and we can do pork dumplings together! Take care!

My boyfriend & I have always had a passion for cooking. We knew one thing we really wanted to do when he came to visit me in Hong Kong was an authentic Chinese cooking class. We were lucky enough to come across Bill's cooking studio. We started the day by going to the wet market where Bill taught us many interesting facts about the market & the city itself. It was a great way to start a cooking class as we got to see just where & how the locals got their ingredients. Next, Bill took us to the cooking studio where we ate good food, improved our cooking skills, & had a lot of laughs. We were very diligent in taking notes on our recipes to make sure we were able to replicate them to be as tasty as the ones Bill initially cooked for us. We had such a great time with Bill & recommend everyone to check out his cooking classes. We hope to see Bill again in the future so he can help us become even better cooks!

Bill was so welcoming and shared some stories relating to Chinese culture while we waited for other people to arrive.
The facilities are top class and the cooking experience was tailored to our tastes and skill level.

This is a special one that not like an usual cooking school. It's cozy and tutors are friendly like family. Spacious studio at good location. I've been to other school that most of them are very logistic and with time limitation. Which this one don't have a fixed lesson finishing time. Especially for bread making which have various factors changing the fermentation time. Most important is the portion you take home is enormous. They also tailor made lessons with you have friends going with you.
I am afraid I wrote too much because I am a fan of them since I tried their lesson 6 months ago.

Bill met us at the stated time and took us to a market to shop for the ingredients needed for our class. It was just my husband and I in the class so very personal. We were able to ask lots of questions and really get involved. The time went very quickly. We ate everything we cooked and got to talk about food, the business and Hong Kong and how it is changing. It was a fun afternoon.

Thank you very much Julie. Food brings people together! Can't think of any other better way to exchange our views on the world in a very friendly and civilized manner. Best regards, Bill
