    What to Expect
    Meet up your guide at your hotel lobby, and then your guide will take you to explore the dazzling local spice market with the assigned challenges for you to obtain some special ingredients and spices which will be used in the Mapo Tofu cooking class afterwards.

    After the fun experience in the local spice market, you will take a walk through the back streets to a hidden professional Sichuan Cooking Studio where soon the ingredients and spices you collected from the market will be put in use.

    Another break will be taken place in the cooking school with Sichuan Jasmine tea as a traditional custom to entertain guests. After learning Sichuan tea culture, the food preparations will be guided by a professional chef. You will learn how to make the secret magic sauce of Mapo Tofu  and follow your chef 's instructions step by step to process food till it gets well done.

    Enjoy your lunch or dinner that cooked by yourself. You will also enjoy the refreshments during the class.
