Cooking class was very easy to follow and I am confident that I will be able to replicate dishes once I am back home.

My boyfriend and I booked this about a day in advance. Samtours was quick to respond about arranging hotel pickup. The taxi driver was ontime and dropped us off at Holly's Hostel, which is close to Wuhouci and the Jinli walking street area. Some of the ingredients like tofu and green onions were pre-chopped and the garlic and ginger had already been peeled which made the cooking go fast. I took notes on the preparation and recipe as the instructor lead us through them. Each one took 15-20 minutes for the two of us to prepare and were delicious. We made mapo doufu, sweet and sour pork, kungpao chicken, and dumplings. The mapo dofu was my favorite and the sweet and sour pork was my bf's favorite. Looking at the hostel menu, we could have ordered these for about 100 RMB, but I definitely intend to make all of these again and the recipes are pretty simple and easy to follow, so I thought the tour was money well spent. We were done around noon this was the lunch session.
