Before your Taiwanese cooking class begins, a provided taxi transfers you from Zhishan MRT Station to a professional demonstration kitchen. Meet the expert chef in this private setting and preface your personalized lesson with a walk to nearby Shidong Market.
Learn about fresh ingredients used in Taiwanese cuisine at this traditional Taipei market, before returning to the kitchen for a hands-on session. For another 1.5 hours you’ll practice traditional methods of food preparation and create three culinary dishes from scratch under the careful guidance of your private instructor.
Sample an array of flavors in Taiwanese cuisine while you cook from a set menu including soup, appetizer and main dish (see options in Itinerary). Discover the key ingredient in making braised beef noodle soup; learn to create distinctive flavors in hot and sour soup; or prepare three cups chicken, a Taiwanese signature dish.
Finally, sit down to savor a mouthwatering lunch. Afterward, you’ll return to Zhishan MRT Station by taxi.
