What you will not learn in this class is how to prepare Americanized Chinese fast food.

The first section of this course teaches how to make Chinese hand noodles. This family recipe dates back to time immemorial. It is very popular in Northern China. We start with noodles because it is a staple food for Chinese food much like rice.

In the third section of the course, I teach a few of my family’s favorite stand-alone meals.

The fourth section teaches how to make Chinese dumplings (Joa zi), and Chinese steamed buns (Baozi).

The fifth and final section of the course teaches how to make four-color bread, and introduces the basics of bread art.

In the end with the knowledge you will gain from this course you will be able to prepare a fifteen-course feast fit for the finest of occasions. Guaranteed to impress your guests and ensure your culinary skills will be remembered.

All of the foods taught in this class require only basic kitchen equipment, and easy to obtain ingredients. Each of the recipes are also quite forgiving and flexible which will allow you to make them your own.
