We recently did the cooking class with Luxi in Dali. You are completely involved  in the course from selecting the vegetables at the local market, to chopping, measuring and cooking a dish to suit your taste. She is very helpful at explaining basic elements of a Chinese kitchen which are essential and overlooked in other courses. Very professional and organized. You will be very full at the end as there is plenty of food!!

We really enjoyed the day at Rice & Friends cooking school. Luxy is a very sweet girl who is a wonderful hostess and teacher. The market tour and her lovely courtyard in her home were the perfect setting. The individual cooking stations and attention to cleanliness and details were very nice also. Highly recommended. A few things from the other reviews have changed... there was no free coffee for us, but free lime-water, and the price has raised to 150cny. Also, Luxy said that she is moving soon to another very nice location with a bigger courtyard and mountain view!

We attended the cooking school in august 2011 and it was one of our highlights during our time in yunnan. We started the morning with a walk through the local market where we could ask questions about all the different local vegetables. The cooking class was well thought out, relaxed and there was no problem accommodating our request for vegetarian. We very much enjoyed preparing and eating our meals. Over lunch we had a chance to discuss many other culinary treats local to the area.

We loved everything about this class--the trip to the awesome Dali market, the amazing and knowledgeable teacher, the adorable space where the class is held! Lots of little tips and tricks that you can take away to your kitchen, and all the ingredients are guaranteed to be found at your local asian market back home! We did a couple of cooking classes in Beijing and this one was by far superior! Do it.

We had a fantastic day with Luxi at Rice&Friends cooking school. The day started perfectly with a trip to the market to buy our ingredients and get taught about different Chinese vegetables that we didn't recognise. Then we went to Luxi's beautiful home where we each had a work station for our cooking. Everyone got to individually cook each dish under Luxi's careful instruction. We had a 3 course meal plus desert and didn't need to eat for the rest of the day! We came home with a lovely cookbook about the dishes we had prepared. A bargin for 99RMB!
