I had a lot of fun at my half day cooking class with Lance. His English is amazing and he was very welcoming. It was great that we got to go to the local market before the class to buy some fresh ingredients and learn about the different produce that Chengdu has to offer. The cooking school has amazing facilities and is very close to the market. The professional chef was articulate and animated and the whole experience was very fun! Thank you so much!

We did the half day Chendu Back Alley Foodie tour. Lance was our guide and he was very knowledgeable about different foods, bringing us to spice market, tea house and wrapping it up with the best hotpot ever. I would highly recommend any activity he is in charge of, as he knows his stuff. He a really funny guy and was very patient with us, especially because one of us was moving along slowly. Sorry for the late review, buddy!

Winter and his team, as led by Lily, were instrumental in providing us with an amazing food tour in Chengdu. We visited the key markets, ate all the essential dishes (ie dan dan noodles, Liangfen jelly, rabbit etc.) and ended with a traditional Sichuan hotpot. As a foodie, I knew quite a lot about Chengdu, but this tour gave me much more knowledge and the history on the Sichuan cuisine. Highly recommended!

This was one of my favorite experiences during my month long tour in China. It was so fun to explore the food market, learn how to make dumplings with fresh ingredients, and finally prepare a multi-course sichuan meal. I learned so much about all of the different spices and enjoyed cooking with the other students. Plus the meal was SO TASTY I still crave it and would go back to Chengdu just for the food in this class!!!!

I had the pleasure of taking the class as one person so it was very nice to have Hazel as both a friendly and experienced guide. She was so knowledgeable and explained everything to me in the market. When we cooked the food, the chef was very patient with me and talked me through each step. As a vegetarian and beginner cook, it was such an amazing experience to cook such delicious food! I highly recommend!

I had a great experience cooking at Chilli Cool. Lance is fantastic at hosting cooking classes at the Chilli Cool Kitchen. He multitasked as a spice market tour guide, translator and photographer. Not only did I learn how to cook delicious Sichuan style food with a wok, but I got plenty of great photos of the experience. He also had spice market challenges for us that helped us interact with local people - very memorable!
I highly recommend this experience. (One tip: many buildings in Sichuan don't have central heating, so make sure you dress warmly enough.)

This was a fun way to see beyond the touristy side of Chengdu.Our lovely guide,Lance, took us to a local market.He patiently showed us all of the spices and entertained us with funny stories. The cooking class only had three dishes.However, I now have a deeper appreciation of the skill required. Lots of fun.

Lance was such a lovely, kind and helpful guide. A very personal attention. You didn't feel you were in a group. His english is also perfect, better than mine!😂

We had a nice walk in the spicy market and if we liked something he would just get it for you. He explained lots of interesting things to us. If we had any question he would try to explain it. I discover some vegetables I never saw before.

We stopped in a stoll and they showed us how to make dumplings. Such an incredible experience!

He also gave us a paper with a game. I had to order 2 pieces of tofu. I learnt how to say it in mandarin!

Afterwards we had some tea and the snacks we bought in the market. The house is so clean and cute. And then we started cooking with the chef. She was really good. Thanks god Lance waa translating! We learnt a lot. And the best part... The delishous food we ate! We also tried some plum wine we bought in the market and he gave us a nice local beer called snow beer. So nice!

Thank you so much for your hospitality and the great experience!

I knew in China I wanted to do a cooking class and in Chengdu with all those incredible chillies and peppercorns I knew it had to be here. It just so happened my hostel used this company, and wow thank goodness it did! From the second Hazel picked us up with her big happy smile I knew we were in safe hands. She was amazing the whole time, she had so much information for us going around the markets and she answered all our questions perfectly. The challenges were so much fun and the spring rolls at the market were insanely good. The cooking class was amazing, we made delicious dishes. And we all enjoyed eating them a lot. We had a fun group and we spent the afternoon eating, laughing and cooking up a storm. The 3 dishes we made we so delicious and we even got the recipes for them plus others too. I cant wait to cook these dishes myself when I get home. It was a super fun day and it was so chilled out and not rushed at all. In fact make sure you have enough time to do this so you aren't having to rush off as it was a great experience. Definitely the best cooking class I've ever done before. Thanks to all who made the day so good and thanks again to Hazel for being a great host!
