Detailed itinerary

Day 1 Cooking Class Itinerary

    At 8:30 a.m, your local guide will meet you at the Exit D of Sajinqiao Station of Metro Line 1. Please make sure you get there on time.

    You will head for a local family first. After introductions to each other, you will set out to a local wet market and know all kinds of local food ingredients. You will encounter many local people coming here for vegetables and it’s common to see some vigorous bargaining.

    After purchasing what you need, you will go to the a private yard at the foot of City Wall to begin the cooking magic. Under the guidance of your host, you will do the chopping, cutting, frying, and other cooking styles you may never have tried. You will get to make the authentic Chinese dishes that you have previously tasted. Besides the dishes, we recommend you make dumplings and noodles, two staples in Northern China. From mixing and wrapping stuffing, and boiling dumplings to making sauces, you will be walked through by your host step by step. Making noodles is a little different; you only need to make thin strips out of the flour dough and boil them, it’s done! The trick lies in the sauce or soup. With the explanation of your guide, the host will show you how to make plain noodles delicious. After everything is done, you will be proud to enjoy what you made.

    After lunch, you will be offered some seasonal fruit as dessert and rewarded with a recipe for what you made!
