I am a Shanghai mom, my hobbies include making food that no one eats and counting to 3. Cooking with mom was the first tradition my mom passed down to me, from her own mother. I have been doing this for 60 years, with my mom, my kids and now with my guests, from a Japanese food blogger to honeymooners from the US. It will be a fun project for us, we will work as a team in the kitchen. It is one of those special moments you get to feel like a kid again. And yes, this time (only) you can lick your spoon.
Within an hour, even as a beginner, you will learn to make three Chinese dishes. I will guide and show you each step of the way and let you give it a try. I will also teach you cooking methods used in Chinese cuisine, using my family recipes. It is like realizing it is your chances to discover all the ‘secret ingredients” your mom kept from you as a child. After cooking, we will enjoy the delicious meal we cooked together. From Shanghai classics such as Shanghai Style Rice with Ham & Mustard Green, Shanghai Wonton to seasonal Shanghai vegetable such as Sautéed Mushroom with Tofu Pocket and Scallion, Celtuce appetizer. Vegetarians have no shortage of dishes to try.
Here is my secret: I used to pack lunches for my children to take to school, just like my mom did. Except now, despite their exotic cooking books from around the world and youtube channels, I still get skype calls and emails from my kids about recipes, ingredients and disaster recovery advice.
Our cooking class and lunch will take place in a local residence located in Minhang District of Shanghai suburb, one of the largest resident community in the Shanghai suburb.
