Description

Browse aromatic stalls packed with fragrant herbs, chat with local farmers about their stunning displays of produce, and plan a meal to cook with the help of an expert Chinese chef. Follow the food as you visit a local market to pick out fresh ingredients perfect for a local dumpling cooking class.

With an English-speaking guide, travel to a local Beijing market, where you trawl through food and vegetable stalls filled with common Chinese culinary ingredients including Chinese cabbage, turnips, radishes, carrots, and spinach. Build up a basic understanding of authentic flavor combinations as you glimpse must-use condiments such as white and dark vinegar, Shaoxin wine, fresh root ginger, garlic, and, of course, chilies.

From there, head to a private and traditional Siheyuan courtyard where you have the chance to make Chinese dumplings using the ingredients you have just perused. Make the popular dumplings from start to finish, learning techniques on the best ways to prepare and create before tasting your delicious dish.

After creating the sumptuous lunch with the help of your hostess, dine on the terrace and enjoy other delicious Chinese delicacies before heading back to your hotel.
