Cooking Class in Beijing - Half Day
This tour will begin at either 10:00 or 16:00. Bring an appetite as today’s cooking class is certain to tantalise the taste buds. Transfer to the Dongcheng District, Beijing’s historic old town, and meet with a local chef.
The chef will introduce Chinese cuisine, explaining the key ingredients and the diverse regional varieties found throughout the country. Then it is time to start cooking! There are two courses to choose from, each with a small group of just ten people or less per class.
The first option is a dumpling course. Learn how to knead and roll the dough, create fillings and fold the dumplings. The chef will also demonstrate how to create natural dye from fresh vegetables to add colour to the dish. Hear how dumplings originated and went on to become one of the country’s most prized dishes.
The other option is a course that explores the regional variations of Chinese cuisine. Alongside the chef, cook three different dishes from three different regions, learning about the nuances of Chinese cuisine and its delicate flavours.
After the dishes are ready, sit down and enjoy a meal of freshly prepared, authentic Chinese cuisine. Then say farewell to the chef and return to the hotel.
