Taste of China In-Person Class Series

Do a deep dive into the world of Chinese cooking with Co-op instructor and self-taught home cook Paul Young as we survey the vast flavors of Cantonese, Sichuan, and Shanghai cuisines. In this hands-on series, learn how to break down the flavor principles of each culinary tradition, deconstruct recipes and customize the ingredients to your liking. Students will have the opportunity to watch demos and participate in the preparation of our dinner party. Do come hungry and thirsty because we’ll be cooking and tasting at the same time. The tuition also includes beer and wine tastings.


Students will leave each session with easy-to-follow recipes of all the dishes on the menu. These recipes have all been adapted for the typical home cook and contain many tips & tricks to help minimize your time in the kitchen while staying true to the spirit of the original flavor profiles. All menu items below will use locally-sourced ingredients but are subject to change based on availability of fresh ingredients at local markets.
