UnTour Food Tours recommended this place for a cooking class and we were not disappointed. When booking the class, they helped us find a date and class that would be suitable for the kids. We did the dumpling class. Our 6-year-old twins were able to participate in every step. Yes, the main teacher does not speak English but I don't... More

The class was a wonderful experience in authentic Chinese food. The tour began with a stop at the Wet Market to purchase fresh meat and produce. The chef (Jimmy) was fabulous and hands on, positive and encouraging. He shared tips and effective ways to make Dim Sum and Spring Rolls. Would encourage those who enjoy cooking simply good, authentic Chinese... More

Our friend booked us onto the course via 247 tickets. The whole experience was fantastic. They offer a range of food choices and went out of their way to help adapt the dishes to cater for several gluten intolerant members. Our chef was knowledgeable, confident and instantly put even the non-cookers amongst us at ease. We cooked 2 meals ourselves... More

Had a great time taking one of the Dim Sum making courses. The beer certainly helped! We made Xiolongbao - which is a skill that I will always covet because they are just SO good. Some good hands on support, showing us how the dough should feel in perparation, help with technique in rolling out the dough for filling and... More

My husband and I attended a Dim Sum workshop and enjoyed it, learned a lot and met some nice folks. Some of the ingredients were pre prepared, which made it possible to do all that we did in two hours. We were given sheets with instructions, but they could have been more thorough. I'd recommend taking notes along the way... More

I had been to cooking classes at Chinese Cooking Workshop before, in a very small group (family and friends). Today was the first time this was a group event with 20 participants. In spite of the large number of people, Chef Mike managed to make our cooking event run smoothly - Spicy Chicken Sichuan Style and Shanghai Cold noodles were... More

Hands on training "How to cook Chinese Foods" Half day school trains you how to prepare several items. A little hard to find location if not familiar with Shanghai.

Very nice cooking workshop in central Shanghai with, at least partly, English speaking chefs (the older women who does the real cooking does not speak English, but the younger guy, I think her son, does and explains everything to you). It's a nice little studio, not too fancy, but proper. The price per person was around 150RMB for the normal... More

I visited the cooking workshop with 10 work colleagues from around the world. The facility is nice and could probably handle 15 or so guests in the inner dining room. They have an outdoor courtyard that could bet set up to handle more people. The actual cooking area is rather small and having 4 people and the chef using the... More

First of all, you can eat what you cook, so dont go to lunch beforehand...as we did The class is fun and the food is good. However, I was actually hoping to learn a bit more (techniques, tips, cuts etc) and not just cutting and cooking. Mike is great, and maybe it is worth to have a private lesson with... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
