Description

You host Anna will take you to the farmers market, a 5-10 minute walk from her home where you may purchase local, fresh vegetables for your meal. After you pick up a few ingredients from the market, you will return to her home to cook with your produce and create something delicious together!

During your cooking class with your host Anna and her mother, you will learn to make vegetarian and vegan jiaozi dumplings from scratch. Anna makes a healthy version of traditional Chinese dishes. You'll learn Chinese chopping and stir-fry techniques to prepare quick and easy recipes that you can easily recreate at home. Anna will also show you how to combine various ingredients to bring out the best flavors in each dish. Your cooking class will last for 1-2 hours before you join Anna and her mother at the table to enjoy the meal you helped prepare.

Anna lives in an old building in a modest home in Gubei, known for being one of the safest and quietest neighborhoods in Shanghai. Anna says to make food tasty is not difficult but to make food both healthy and delicious is the challenge. She has successfully mastered this art and will share with you traditional Chinese dishes that she grew up eating that are not only delicious but also healthy.

Anna studied traditional Chinese medicine based food therapy for 10 years and says a proper diet can help cure chronic diseases. Before the existence of modern medicine, we solely depended on food, herbal medicine, and other natural methods to treat diseases and preserve health. Today Anna conducts various workshops and classes to teach the benefits of traditional Chinese medicine. Her work inspires many people worldwide to cook and eat healthy and she would love to share this with travelers as well.

Anna can offer a vegetarian and vegan meal and is more than happy to customize the menu as per your requirements, so please do let her know your preference while creating the booking.
