Wok 'n' Roll:

Immersive Chinese Cooking Class with a local Master Chef

Unlock Your Master Chef Gene with Chinese Cooking and Tasting!

Ever wondered why Chinese cuisine is recognized as one of the best in the world? (We’re sure you agree!) The real secret unfolds not in restaurants, but in the kitchen!

Embark on a culinary expedition unlike any other with our immersive Chinese cooking class. Guided by a locally certified master chef with over 10 years of culinary expertise, you’ll be led step-by-step through the art of making dumplings and two traditional dishes.

The venture starts with a visit to a bustling local wet market—an exciting exploration of the vibrant pulse of Chinese life! Then, roll up your sleeves, get hands-on from handcrafted (two types of steamed and fried) dumplings to mastering classic Chinese dishes. Prepare to fully immerse yourself in the artistry of Chinese gastronomy!

This is not a standard “We show, you follow” cooking class; it is even more than just about cooking. It is about learning, trying, wowing, experiencing “AHA” moments, and entering the gateway to the captivating essence of Chinese culinary magic!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes! We offer vegetarian versions of dumplings and other dishes. However, in a group experience with meat-eaters, we may still prepare one meat dish to showcase the full flavor of Chinese cuisine.

Yes! We can create a vegan menu for you. However, traditional Chinese dumplings often include eggs for the best flavor, so we have to be honest: pure vegetable dumplings might not fully capture the authentic taste of Chinese dumplings!

Yes! We can customize a gluten-free menu for you. Unfortunately, since all Chinese dumplings use flour for the skins, we will have to skip the dumpling-making part of the experience.

Absolutely! We love welcoming future master chefs! The process of making dumplings and preparing dishes is interactive and fun for kids. We recommend bringing children over 5 years old to get the most out of the experience. Due to the effort involved in serving kids, we charge the same price for children as for adults.

Of course! You’ll get to enjoy a generous taste of each recipe during the class. We’ll make sure there’s more than enough food for you to eat and even take some home! So, come hungry and get ready for a homemade feast!

Yes! Our master chef will share all the recipes you learned in class in a handy PDF document. We hope these recipes accompany you on your culinary journey, inspiring you to explore amazing cuisines from around the world!

Get ready for a blast – we’ll be cooking in a cozy local Chinese home with a nice garden in a beautiful alleyway neighborhood of the former French Concession area. It’s not a commercial kitchen, so it offers a superhomely and immersive experience! The detailed address will be shared before the tour.

We accommodate bookings of 1-6 participants, with discounts for larger groups. The experience requires a minimum of 2 participants to start. If you’re booking for just one person, please contact us for confirmation.

For bookings of 3-6 participants, we’ll reserve the date just for you to make it your private experience! For bookings of 2 participants, the slot will remain open for 1-2 more participants. If you want a private experience, simply book for 3 participants, and the slot will be exclusively yours!

Yes! We are happy to offer you a private session based on your requested time. Please contact us at least 48 hours beforehand to coordinate!
