My family and I arranged to have a Dumpling cooking class with Rice and Friends in Dali. I started my discussions with Luxi form the US and she was so pleasant and accommodating with our needs (vegetarian option). She met us at the foot of the market in the morning and walked with us giving a historical and cultural perspective of different ingredients sold in the marketplace. It was so refreshing and we learnt a lot from her as she bought some fresh herbs and vegetables for our dumplings. Her facility was clean and she was well organized. While preparing the dumplings, she explained the history, origin and the various ways to make the delicious variations. We had a wonderful experience that we all will remember for years to come. Thank you Luxi.

Luxi is an amazing person, full of knowledge of food and chinese culture. She speaks perfect english and communication among us was great. Our was not just a cooking class but a journey thru local flavours and chinese history. I really reccomend taking this class (we did the "classic three chinese dishes" class) as this was our hilight in Dali. Marco

Very informative cooking class. Nice food, clean kitchen and dining area. It included a tour of the market and local products. Luxi is friendly and can speak great English. We did the Yunnan cuisine course - spring rolls, cucumber salad and Yunnan mash potatoes, the only thing that was missing for me would be to add more meat.

Luxi is a very nice teacher, we learned how to make dumplings from scratch. Everything is well explained and at the end she gives you a booklet with all the explanations and pictures to reproduce it at home. Thanks a lot.

We had a wonderful cooking class at the Rice & Friends cooking class. Also a awesome market tour and we learnt a lot from this. The market tour explained how the Chinese people use the ingredients and where they are found. The food was delicious and there was wonderful service and everything was clean.
