Learn how to prepare and cook typical dishes from Taiwan in this Taiwanese cooking class in English (or Spanish) in Taipei. Take a walk in a traditional market, choose the freshest ingredients, and join us in the kitchen to boost your cooking creativity and to discover the most authentic flavors of Taiwan.
We will start the morning visiting a traditional market, where we will select the freshest ingredients. We will use these later to prepare the most tasty Taiwanese dishes. Feel the sounds of the morning market bustle, talk to the local merchants and choose the best ingredients for your dishes.
Visit to the market will depend on the chosen menu and class participants for the chosen date and time.
Before jumping to the kitchen, we will relax and sit to enjoy a delicious Taiwanese tea, to leave behind the bustle of the market. Once refreshed, we will prepare a menu of 3 or 4 delicious dishes (including a dessert). Our patient teacher will lead us through the class, and she will explain all the tips and secrets of the authentic Taiwanese cuisine, and the most commonly used ingredients.
Let us introduce to you three different menus you can choose and book to learn to cook and taste!
During booking, please tell us which menu you prefer.
This menu contains some of the most famous dishes of Chinese and Taiwanese traditional cuisines: Niúròu miàn (牛肉麵) “Braised Beef Noodle Soup”, Xiǎolóngbāo (小籠包), the world acclaimed “Soup Dumplings”, and the most refreshing and famous Taiwanese drink, Zhēnzhū nǎichá (珍珠奶茶) “Bubble Tea”.
Together with these delicious dishes, we’ll also prepare a common Taiwanese cold side dish (Smashed Cucumber Salad).
In this gourmet menu you’ll learn 3 classic dishes: Wū yúzǐ chǎofàn (烏魚子炒飯) “Mullet Roe Fried Rice”, the Mullet Roe also known as “black gold” in Taiwan and seen as a treasure from local waters.
We’ll also learn to cook the famous Sān bēi jī (三杯雞) “Three-Cup Chicken” and Wǔwèi zhōng juǎn (五味中卷) “Squid Salad with Five-Taste Sauce” whose sauces are considered one of the most classic sauces of Taiwanese cuisine.
To complete this menu, we’ll elaborate Dòuhuā (豆花) “Tofu Pudding”, a typical Taiwanese dessert.
Our cooking schools are located in Taipei’s downtown and are easily accessible by public transport.
Once a thriving tea and fabric trading port, the area is now home to local designer stores, hipster cafés, and a fabric market.
Tattoos, graffiti, pop music, trendy fashions, imported goods, movies. Sometimes called “the Harajuku of Taipei”, get lost in the alleys of Taipei’s Ximending
