It was perfect! I was picked up promptly in a private van and taken to the kitchen for my class. It happened that I was the only one there that day so it was a private lesson. Every question I asked was answered and was given tips as I went along. Very enjoyable and tasty too. Got to take my food back to the hotel for my son and daughter-in-law to enjoy. She is Chinese and said it was some of the best she had tasted! The whole experience was great. Would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys cooking and food.
Cooking class was very easy to follow and I am confident that I will be able to replicate dishes once I am back home.
My boyfriend and I booked this about a day in advance. Samtours was quick to respond about arranging hotel pickup. The taxi driver was ontime and dropped us off at Holly's Hostel, which is close to Wuhouci and the Jinli walking street area. Some of the ingredients like tofu and green onions were pre-chopped and the garlic and ginger had already been peeled which made the cooking go fast. I took notes on the preparation and recipe as the instructor lead us through them. Each one took 15-20 minutes for the two of us to prepare and were delicious. We made mapo doufu, sweet and sour pork, kungpao chicken, and dumplings. The mapo dofu was my favorite and the sweet and sour pork was my bf's favorite. Looking at the hostel menu, we could have ordered these for about 100 RMB, but I definitely intend to make all of these again and the recipes are pretty simple and easy to follow, so I thought the tour was money well spent. We were done around noon this was the lunch session.
This cooking trip was run by Samtour and it couldn't have gone better. I was picked up at my hotel right on time and the Chef/driver spoke perfect english. His home was much nicer than mine and he made me feel very comfortable. We cooked mapo tofu, kung pao chicken, and twice cooked pork... All very delicious.
I will definitely use him in the future. Highly recommended.
Could not want a better experience, Easy cooking directions and recipes. Hands on experience.
Food as good as any I have had at restaurants.
In fact I made one of the dishes almost immediately on my return home.
It received rave reviews.
If you enjoy cooking or even eating a worthwhile experience
Good english speaking guide
Recipies to repeat at home.
I would recommend to friends
Great tour! Got picked up at my hotel and taken to a family run cafe! Asked if I could change one of the dishes which they were more then happy to accommodate ... Definitely recommend it if u are a foodie who wants to interact with the locals!
Had a great time and the staff was friendly and full of humor. We went to the market to learn about the food firsthand, then we made delicious versions of typical Sichuan dishes. Thanks!
The small kitchen was perfect for a morning class of 2. Instructions were confined to sweet and sour chicken, kung pow chicken, pork and shrimp dumplings and bean curd in XO sauce. The teacher demonstrated and we each repeated the steps of prepping the ingredients and the sequential combining and cooking them, and eating them. We were stuffed. This was good for developing some skills cutting everything with a small cleaver and cooking everything quickly in a very hot wok.
