Come join us at the world famous Sichuan Higher Institute of Cuisine and learn to cook in Chengdu, China!

Over the course you will learn how to prepare a mouthwatering selection of local delicacies, how to use the versatile Chinese cleaver to cut your raw ingredients into different shapes, to create some of the famous complex flavors of Sichuan (including ‘numbing-and-hot flavour' and ‘fish-fragrant flavour'), and to control the heat of the wok. The program will include authentic versions of classic Sichuanese dishes such as Gong Bao chicken with peanuts, twice-cooked pork, pock-marked old woman's beancurd (mapo doufu) and Fish braised in chilli bean sauce.

You will also learn how to make some traditional Sichuanese snacks, such as the irresistible spicy Zhong dumplings, and Dan dan noodles. By the end of the course we hope to give you the confidence to conjure up fabulous Sichuanese dinners at home! All classes will be taught by master Chinese chefs with an English translator. The program will include festive dinners and a weekend excursion to visit Chengdu's Panda Research Center and the Leshan Buddha.
