I did a dumpling class with Sophia and finally learnt how to make dumplings! Sophia made the class very interesting as well as instructive. The classroom is a lovely space to be in and it was also lots of fun.

Have just completed the Hutong's 7 day Xishuangbanna Bike tour in Yunnan. What an epic trip- incredible scenery, amazing food and wonderful people. Sure it was a challenge- lots of hills but that also meant some great downhill descents. Got to places a normal tourist wouldn't see. Highly recommended.

Fun experience as we learned to make dumplings and then we enjoyed with the new friends we'd made that day while learning.

I have been a member for almost 4 years. The cooking classes are 2.5 hours long on a certain theme (like Sichuan food or dumplings or noodles). First rate, very-fluent-in-English instructors. I also took a class on Taoism, TCM and QiGong exercises (although Alex Tan, the resident TCM guy is moving out of Beijing in summer 2015 - get to him fast!) Alex also does a great "TCM Walk" in Temple of the Earth Park to showcase local culture and its ties to current Chinese life.
Anyway - you get the idea - top notch access to Chinese culture led by nice and knowledgeable people. What else could you ask for?

Our group of 7 just loved our cooking class with Sophia! It was especially fun being in a big group of friends, but Sophia was great at teaching the process of making dumplings and we had fun in the market with her as well. The Hutong is super professional, all of their marketing and product materials are very nice. I was impressed by the whole experience and would definitely do it again.
