People who love good food always love life. If you love good food, come and meet my friend Laodong, a stay-home mom who spent a lot of time studying and cooking the most delicious food for her son. She is really good at family cuisine,dumplings, noodles, baozi, and more, and we often have gatherings at her home. In the morning, Yuhua will take you to a local food market to get immersed in the most lively place in Beijing and learn to differentiate a variety of Chinese cooking spices and ingredients. Laodong will then greet you at her private home in hutong. You will learn how to cook a typical Chinese dish and dumplings. Celebrate with a dumpling banquet and family cuisine.
