My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon shopping, cooking, eating and chatting with Helen and her helper, Cherry. I had requested a private class for 3 Sichuan dishes that I had tasted on an earlier visit to Chengdu, Sichuan province and had tried unsuccessfully to duplicate at home in my kitchen in Sweden.
Touring the fresh market with Cherry beforehand we purchased the items we would not be able to find back home and then walked back to Helen's kitchen (in her apartment) to prepare and cook the food. Both women speak english well and are very charming. I am not sure if our attempts will be as tasty as the dishes we created today. I really got a sense of the subtleties of the dishes I chose and why my earlier attempts have been unsuccessful. A lot of the fun was just hanging out with these two great and interesting young chinese women. This was a memorable experience!

We loved this class. We took the hand-pulled noodle class for 6 people. That has been my favorite cooking class I have taken in Shanghai. The class was very nice and the conversation afterwards was too. I enjoyedlearning more about Chinese history and culture.
The chef was very professional and passionate; he can pull different shapes for the noodles. First he taught us how to knead the dough, then he showed us how to pull it. We looked at the chef pulling and thought it was very easy, but that was not what i thought. We practiced a lot, the chef was extremely patient and nice. Finally everyone did it. If I would get back to Shanghai, I will take another lesson at Cook in Shanghai. Thanks Helen and Cherry. I wish you continued success.

we really enjoyed our class, especially my friend who tried the food and loved it so I will definitely try to cook the same things shortly.
There are have ten mins for Chinese tea ceremony before cooking,i very like this part.Also we can choose our own recipes,we cooked some vegetarian food,it was simple,health and delicious,especially the tiger dishes(The Chinese Spicy Salad),i can find all ingredients in my country,so i will try to cook it.
I will definitely recommend class to others. I look forward to coming again when I’m come to Shanghai next time.
