What to expect
Vivie is originally from Guizhou, a province in the middle of China renowned for its spicy food and culinary diversity. It is also the birth place of China’s beloved chili sauce ‘Lao Gan Ma’! Vivie was raised as a child mostly by her grandmother who taught her how to create the perfect synthesis of the different spices and flavors of her hometown. Every day after school, Vivie and her grandmother got together and cooked dinner for their family. Her family seldom ate at restaurants because Vivie and her grandmother created and served such delightful dishes at home. Vivie moved to Shanghai when she was eighteen to attend university and has been here for the past decade. Vivie lives with her husband Chris who moved to Shanghai from America along with their two cats Frank and Tim in their comfortable apartment near the famous Xin Hua road. Apart from cooking, Vivie is big fan of dancing, karaoke, playing the guitar, fitness and travel. Vivie and Chris routinely travel Greater China to trek through historical towns. They also enjoy a good game of beer pong on occasion. As you chat you will pick up traces of delicious scents wafting from the kitchen before you all sit down to enjoy an authentic Chinese South-Western meal together. Please note this is not a commercial cooking class, rather an opportunity to cook with an expert home cook in her home and immerse yourself in Chinese culture and cuisine!
