Cooking Learning and Nanluoguxiang Tour

I'm very interested in Chinese food and Chinese cooking. Surf the internet and look for Beijing tour routes. "Beijing Cooking Learning Tour", oh that's what I want! Online book the tour directly.

It's the time for the trip. At 9:00 am the English speaking tour guide picked me up from my hotel and drove to Beijing Cuisine School. Oh, how beautiful dishes! In the cooking school I learnt cooking three different dishes from beginning to end, getting to know the secrets of excellent Chinese culinary skill. The experienced expert of the school told me how to prepare the dish and the steps of cooking. I feel it very different. Thanks to the expert's help, after about two hours I finally finished the three dishes. I still couldn't remember the names of the three dishes, but enjoy the three dishes as my lunch I felt very happy and satisfied though the taste is a little bit strange.

My Lunch

After lunch, the tour guide drove me to a local vegetable market in the downtown area where local community people come for purchasing vegetable, meats, the many spices and other life necessities that make Chinese cooking special. There I saw many local citizens buy the vegetables. Then we move okn to one of the branches of the century-old traditional Daoxiangcun Foodstuffs Store. The store used to produce light snack served to the royal family or governmental officials in the Qing Dynasty. Now it has become one of the local people's must-have snacks of Beijing. The dessert here looks both delicious and delicate, so I bought six boxes for my friends to have a taste.

The tour finished in the early afternoon. I'd like to walk around to see local Beijing life. Once heard that there is a famous Hutong called Nanluoguxiang, where have many local snacks, different kinds of special shops and bars, so in the afternoon I went there. It deserves the reputation! Nearly 1000 meters long Hutong stand so many special shops and bars. There I bought a T-shirt with the design of the Peking Opera mask.

Today I really have a nice trip of "Beijing Cooking Learning Tour" which I did learn a lot of Chinese food. Also the trip to Nanluoguxiang gave me a deep impression.
