Owner description: Rice & Friends Chinese cooking school offers hands-on Chinese cooking courses with English instruction in a beautiful open-air setup with mountain views. It is a very authentic and personal 5-hour cooking experience, including outdoor-market shopping for ingredients, introduction to the theory of Chinese cooking, hands-on preparation of 3 dishes with a recipe booklet to take away and plenty of time for everybody to sit down together and enjoy the meal they cooked themselves. The receipes has been tested overseas and specially designed in order to make sure you can still get all the ingredients for those dishes when you are back home.

I have attended cooking classes all over China and this has to rank among the best. Luci is a wonderful instructor. I notice that there is a big difference between being a good cook vs a good teacher when it comes to cooking lessons, and Luci definitely has both traits. She gives a thorough explanation of Chinese condiments and ingredients, and also provides useful tips on cooking techniques. She even showed us how to use a rice cooker!

Her home and garden set up is lovely and clean. And her complimentary coffee rocks. All the best Luci, and I look forward to more delicious recipes on my next visit to Dali.

This is a brilliant course and i thoroughly recommend it! Luxi is so lovely, patient and helpful and made the day so much fun! We started the day by going to the local market where Luxi explained various ingredients to us (including 1000 year old egg - scary!) that i hadnt seen before. She then took us to her beautiful home where we cooked in the lovely courtyard. Everything was explained and our hands were held every step of the way which was great. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and was just lots of fun! We got to eat everything that we made (which was awesome!) and we were given a recipe booklet at the end which was really lovely. Luxi went to every effort to make it an amazing day.
