If you'd rather not dine in a Chinese restaurant and want something different from your home cooking, an instructive and pleasant alternative is on offer - prepare a delicious dish or dim sum at the Chinese Cooking Workshop. The concept was developed in 2003 as the city’s first cooking program targeting expats. It aims to combine guidance in cooking authentic Chinese dishes with a fun environment for both resident expats and visitors. The workshop started in Yuyuan Road and then moved to the current location tucked in one of the factory buildings inside Lane 696. Two dim sum chefs and a Chinese cuisine chef are invited to guide the hands-on cooking program. They teach more than 40 kinds of Chinese dim sum and 12 signature dishes from Shanghai, Sichuan, Guangdong and Huaiyang cuisine. Each two-hour hands-on workshop costs 150 yuan (US$21.97). You can also join the workshop chef on a trip to the wet market and learn more about choosing the right ingredients for your modest attempts at Chinese cooking. Then, head back to the kitchen to cook up a feast with the market finds. This workshop is charged at 200 yuan per person.
