Spend a day expanding your food knowledge and tasting delicious Chengdu cuisine on this exciting foodie experience. You’ll explore a local spice market with a guide to navigate, so you won’t have to worry about getting lost. Learn about local ingredients, and then visit a Sichuan courtyard restaurant for a cooking class. A professional chef will teach you how to make multiple dishes, and at the end of your class, you can eat the dishes you’ve prepared with beverages included too.
What to Expect
Meet up your guide at the hotel lobby, and then your guide will take you to explore the dazzling local spice market with the assigned challenge for you to obtain some special ingredients and spices which will be used in the cooking class afterwards.

After the fun experience in the local spice market, you will take a walk through the back streets to a hidden gem - a traditional Sichuan courtyard restaurant where soon the ingredients and spices you collected from the market will be put in use.

Another break will be taken place in the courtyard with Sichuan Gaiwan tea as the traditional custom to entertain guests. After learning Sichuan tea culture, the food preparations will be guided by the professional chef. Follow your chef 's instructions step by step to process food till it gets well done.

Enjoy your lunch or dinner that cooked by yourself. You will also enjoy the refreshments during the class.
