We got picked up from our hotel and our instructor took us on a tour of a local market, pointing out many of the different vegetables and what they could be used for. We had asked for vegetarian food, and so she bought several blocks of tofu in the market as well. The school is located in an old farmhouse where we were set up around a huge rectangular table. Each of us had a wok with a gas burner, a cleaver, and all our ingredients set out in front of us. She took us through how to use the cleaver and showed us how to prep the vegetables for each dish -and my daughter, who had never even handled a sharp knife, was able to do everything under her instruction. Then she took us step-by-step through how to prepare five different dishes, and we all managed too pull them off. The food we made was excellent, including some really wonderful stuffed steamed vegetables, beer fish (which we did as beer tofu), kung pao onions, and spicy stir fried eggplant. I'd never used a wok in quite the way we learned how to use it at the school and each dish was incredibly fast and easy. It's inspired me to take a new stab at using a wok when I get home. Well worth it.

The course is about four hours, located in a farmhouse just outside town. We went for a short market visit first which the kids found very interesting and we cooked five dishes, which were all delicious (and could easily be made vegetarian on request). Our chef, Kandy, was super helpful and helped our young boys learn how to julienne vegetables and cook with a wok. For the kids it was a great experience. If you are familiar with Asian cooking, you’ll learn the odd tip here and there and have a lovely lunch. We really enjoyed the experience.

As a group, we attended a class which was fun to learn how to cook in a Wok and also eat our own food. It was educational and fun and would recommend it to others.

We spent a really interesting morning at the Yangshuo Cooking School, which is based in a small village (surrounded by fields and mountains) outside of Yangshuo City. The teacher was really good, instructions were straightforward and the food was delicious. I'm vegetarian and they adapted the dishes for me. All of the staff at the school were friendly and helpful.

I visited Yangshou in Jul 2019, during one of the hottest week of the year. Signing up for the cooking class was a good break from the sun! They offer 2 classes a day, and different dishes for different days of the week. It is a class that is suitable for people who prefer a demo-and-follow session. There wasn't much explanation on the origin/ stories of the dishes. Worth a try if you would like to try a small portion of their local delicacies! At the same time, settling for your lunch/dinner.
