We are foodies and we like to cook. We have taken many basic and intermediate cooking classes. We know quite a bit about Asian cooking (since I'm Asian!) We were offered this class by our travel company as an activity to fill the afternoon/ early evening. We had hoped it would be more of a learning experience, working with seasonal... More

This cooking class was very well organised. We started with a tour of the local market. Our guide Michelle was very informative about the local produce. We then headed to the cooking school set in a farmhouse. The cooking was set up in a barn style shed which was open both sides. This was lovely as you were able to... More

Booked as part of our tour, we didn't know what to expect and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our teacher Michelle took us on a Market tour, then gave us the hands-on experience of cooking our own 5 course banquet. Highly recommend it.

My wife and I were picked up from our slightly out of Yangshuo hotel at 9.15am and taken to the market (extra cost of 40RMB applied for transport which was added to the 180RMB/person cost of the cooking school).   We were dropped by our driver at the town park and waited around 15 mins by ourselves for the cookery...

I'm a big foodie, and my boyfriend can't boil water. Somehow, our teacher was able to get us both interested and entertained the whole time! She was very knowledgeable and started our tour through a local wet market- very handy as I had seen a lot of foods, but never knew what they were. My boyfriend and I loved it-... More

We did a cooking lesson here. It started with a visit to the market and then a cooking lesson where we prepared a 5 course meal, or rather 5 dished. The food was great! My only criticism is that they tried to help us a bit too much. We have the recipes but they did all the control of the... More

Each year going abroad on holidays I take cooking lessons and i must say that this class was one of my favourite ! First of all our teacher Michelle was really kind patient and explained very well. Then the class took place outside the city in a very nice area with a great view. All the staff was kind and... More

It was really nice to spend an afternoon in the wounderful surroundings of Yangshuo Cooking school. Our family with two teenagers, 13 and 18, enjoyed the cooking lesson a lot. The five courses we made was very tasty and became our dinner for the day. We took part in the evening class starting with a visit to the local market.... More

Our party of three joined 5 others "chefs in training" for a lovely afternoon and evening. We started at the market where our master chef, Lucy, showed us around to explain different fruits, vegetables, and animals. We also were invited to go to the second part of the market where there were live animals sold for food. She was respectful... More

Can I just say a huge Thank you to the staff at this cooking school. Our tour guide with Odyssey tours organised this cooking school for us as a substitute for another activity that we couldn't participate in due to the rain. I love cooking and we have two, 7 year olds that love watching every cooking show and also... More
