We took the wet market tour which was fun and interesting. Echo identified a number of interesting fruits and meats. She helped me buy great northern Chinese rice (so many varieties to pick from!). Back at a private residence we made dumplings. By the end we were all making pretty well shaped dumplings that tasted great. Helen and her team made us comfortable and were great instructors. Highly recommended. Thank you Helen and team!

When visiting my friend who lives in Shanghai we signed up for this cooking class. Not really sure what to expect we showed up and were greated by our friendly host, Echo. Then we were taken to the wet market to pick out items we were going to cook. In prior cooking class we just cooked the dishes but here we got to go to the market which was a unquie experience. After the market we went back to the class apartment to cook. The chef was very knowledgeable and taught us how to cook several different delicious dishes. This was a great cooking class and very authentic experience.

We started with a quick tour in the wet market with Heather to buy some vegetables needed for the meals. Then we met Chef Jiang in a apartment so we can really feel we are cooking at (his) home! We chose 2 recipes and then Chef Jiang detailed the different steps so we can do everything by ourselves. He was very nice and attentive to help up and to explain is how to cook. Finally, the meals were really simple to prepare and to cook (once you buy all the ingredients) and the result was absolutely delicious!
I recommend this friendly team, we spent a great time and we had a delicious dinner :P

I went to the dim sum class on Sundays, and I recommend it. The class from start to finish was about 4 hours long including the tour of the wet market. When you are cooking you are standing most of the time, so no lazy bones here!

It starts with a wet market cooking tour where the English speaking guide takes you to various stalls and buy the ingredients for the day. Ericson, my guide, explained the different ingredients, unique foods, various fish and produce, what they are, where they are from, and what people in Shanghai generally do with them. On my tour the guide also bought a few ingredients not common to expats to sample later (Century Duck eggs, fresh water chestnuts, and 汤圆 tang yuan).

The cooking class itself was good, they give you a list of 16 dishes and the group chooses 3. In mine we chose 小笼包 xiao long bao, 饺子 jiǎozi Chinese dumplings, and 春卷 chūn juǎn Spring rolls. While some things were prepped ahead of time (the broth for the soup dumplings) most of the items you prepare yourself. This includes chopping all the veggies, mixing and prepping the sauces, as well as kneading the dough and making each individual dumpling wrapper. The cook didn’t speak English but the translator, Echo, was very helpful and explained each and every process. Basic knowledge and cooking skills are required (know how to chop things with knives, know how to mix a bowl….) but instructions will be given for the more complicated things like kneading the dough, and making the dumpling wrappers. The class can be adjusted to be vegetarian/vegan friendly, in mine 2/5 people were vegetarians/vegans and separate dumpling fillings were created to fit their needs.

I had a great time, thank you again Echo and Ericson for such a fun experience.

This was a great afternoon. It was a nice introduction into Shanghainese markets, people and food. The guides took us to the market and we saw, smelt and tasted a variety of ingredients. The guide Echo was warm and friendly, with excellent English - and all the staff were knowledgeable. We made three types of halal / vegetarian dim sum. I like how the providers email you the night before to choose what type of dim sum we would like to make. And I liked how they provided a lovely cup of tea with a small ceremony on arrival. My mother, sister and I thought it was one of the best things we did in Shanghai! Give it a go.

This session was very cool! We met our guid in our hotel lobby and taxied to a local apartment that the company rented in the city to meet with the chef and learn to make noodles by hand, so much fun and a great Shanghai experience. Will be something we remember the rest of our lives! Recommend to all interested in adventure and learning to make noodles.

Yesterday, we did the Chinese calligraphy class and we loved it! This company does much more than cooking classes- they also do calligraphy, traditional Chinese paper cutting and other culture tours! We had such a good time and our teacher (Professor Du) was incredible! He provided us with lots of information about Chinese calligraphy. The translator (Echo) was great and made us feel really welcome! They even asked us to have lunch with them! Thank you professor Du and Echo for providing such a good experience- we will definitely come back to do more classes so we can spend time with you both and learn more about Chinese culture!

I was offered a cooking lesson for my birthday, and what a gift! Nobody else than me that day but I didn’t regret it at all. Jay, who works as a guide and translator, is very friendly and full of knowledge, the visit of the fresh market was very interesting. The cook is also very nice, and I enjoyed the lesson and the food. At the end, you can keep the receipees to use them again, which I’ve already done several times. Also, if you’re vegetarian, don’t worry! I asked for vegetarian meals only, and there was no problem at all. Chinese cuisine is good and varied!
