Detailed itinerary

Day 1 Cooking class

    There are two cooking classes available each day. You may choose to participate in the lunch time (11:00-15:30) or dinner time (1700-21:00).

    The tour is divided into three parts.

    Part 1: Visit Local Market

    This market used to be a state-own grain shop where all the staff and managers are Beijingers. Different from the bustling noisy market, this place is very tranquil and clean. We will introduce all kinds of daily necessities like staples, flours, eatable oils, vegetables, condiments, meats, herbs, etc. to you. Through this short trip, you will know about the real life of a common Beijinger.

    Part 2: Cooking Experience

    Each cooking class would teach you 5 traditional dishes including dumplings. You will learn the cooking skills from a professional chef that come from famous 5-star hotels. He will introduce various culinary culture and customs in different areas of the country, explain seasonings and condiments that you will use, and share some interesting personal stories. Each and every one would be able to participate and practice. The chef will also show you his impressive cutting skills. There will be a guide aside to help you with any communication barriers.

    Part 3: Enjoy Lunch/Dinner

    After the cooking experience, your chef will do the fry or some final touches on the dishes you prepared. Then, lunch/dinner shall be served. You will enjoy a tasty and nutritious meal that includes meat, vegetables, cold dish and warm dish in different flavors.
