What is a private cooking class like ?

One class takes around 3.5 hours in total.


Private cooking classes are flexible as you can choose the date and time, you can choose the morning class(10am to 1:30pm), the afternoon class(2pm to 5:30pm) or the evening class(6pm to 9pm) as well as the recipes.


Upon arrival, the chef and an assistant (speaking fluent English) will prepare the layout of kitchen or space to have the lesson. You will receive a recipe card with the list of ingredients and recipes, in Chinese, pinyin and English.


First, the chef will introduce to general Chinese cuisine (seasoning, methods of cooking, culture).
Then he will prepare and cook each dish and you will follow along with him. The chef will of course help you and will make sure everyone understood the recipe.


When you are finished you are left with a nice new skill to impress your friends next time you have guest at home!
