We're Karenko Cooking Classes, operating from the beautiful town of Hualien on the east-coast of marvelous Taiwan. The east-coast is famous for its indigenous culture, which also includes the different tribes' food culture styles and traditional plants.
If you ever wanted to bring home some special knowledge about local, aboriginal culture, here you go! We will show you how to prepare traditional food and drinks like the locals. You'll be taught how to prepare your own traditional food under the guidance of our professional hosts. You'll make new friends along the way.
Please be welcome to join in on the fun! Booking slots are available for up to 4 person, so we keep groups small and intimate.
Sofia and Monica were great. They told us about the aboriginal culture while teaching us how to cook some delicious dishes. My daughter joined the experience with me and she said that she discovered a new flavour she hadn’t tasted before in each dish. We joined two other participants so had a small, interesting group. I would highly recommend it to get off the beaten track in Hualien!
We really enjoyed this cooking class and had a lot of fun during it. Sofia was very welcoming and didn't only teach us how to cook, but also explained a lot of background information about the food. Most importantly, all recipes she shared were absolutely delicious!
This was amazing for us to learn so many delicious dishes. It was so much food that we barely made a dent in it but it was all so tasty. The staff spoke perfect English & was super helpful. Highly recommend!
The cooking class was so enjoyable! We had a great time with our hosts as teached us about aboriginal Taiwanese food and culture. We cooked multiple delicious dishes. I highly recommend for anybody in Taiwan who loves food to make a stop in Hualien at Karenko cooking class!
Wonderfully authentic Taiwanese cooking class. Sofia was a charming hostess and chef.
