Chinese cooking – a journey through food

Chinese cooking – a journey through food

In this 6-class cooking course, the teachers will guide you through the vast country of China via food.

We start up in the north of the country, teaching you how to make noodles and dumplings in the first two classes. Gradually, we move towards the middle of the country, and will learn how to make home-cooked comfort food (the Chinese equivalent of husmandskost), such as red-braised pork, or tomato-egg drop soup.

In the last three classes, we travel even more south, discovering more spicy rice-based menus, such as fish-fragrant aubergine, mashed cucumber salad, mapo tofu, gongbao chicken, or sour-spicy cabbage.

For all dishes made, students will be provided a written-out, easy-to-follow Danish recipe. After each class, the group eats the cooked food together.

Please bring

Dishcloths, towel, proper kitchen knife and containers for leftovers

Please note

Although there will be a strong focus on vegetables, the course is not accessible for vegetarians or vegans – as Chinese cooking often uses tiny amounts of meat for taste.

The course will be held in English. Ingredients are included in the price.
