The instructor was knowledgeable and was able to walk me through the steps.

Lance was absolutely gorgeous! He guided us around the market, answered all our questions and was happy to find new friends. After mastering our own little challenges on the market, we went to the kitchen including a nice room for dining and prepared our meal with a pretty friendly cook! We were a group of six and we even prepared vegetarian dished for two of us :-) All in all, it was an awesome experience - we can absolutely recommend it! Thanks a lot! Patricia
Ocean was the perfect host for our cooking class and made it a memorable experience. I will recommend this class to my friends.

I went with two other people. Got picked up on time at my hotel lobby. We visited a local market first and the guide explained about the market food, Chinese herbs and so much more. We cooked three dishes on a wok in a very relaxed atmosphere. It was so friendly and welcoming. I can’t recommend it enough if you are in Chengdu. It would be suitable for all ages, young and old.
At first I was a little bit hesitated to take this class because there are not many information. That is because this class has been only one year. And also I was worried because I am not a good cook. But you don't need to worry it also. You would get a perfect instruction from guide and chef. I hope everybody who is planning to go Chengdu take this class!!! This class is awesome. - You are going to go local <<grocery>> market first. You can learn what kind of ingredients are used in China and also smell different kind of spices. There are alot more but it is related to missions so I can't mention it here. (Because it is written as 'Spice market' I thought there would be spices only. But it was more than that.) - The guide would give you a mission so you can get involved to the market. Not just roaming around the shop. - While you are heading to the courtyard, you can pass by mah-jong game place. I saw a automatic mah-jong table there. - Before the class starts, drink a cup of tea together. - There's a chef and he teaches you how to cook. The guide would translate what the chef said. - If you are not a good cook, don't worry. You can also tase the food made by chef. And the chef and guide help you all the time. - Our guide's name is 'Lance'. He is awesome! Not only a great guide, but also a great friend. And very good looking guy(we promised him to mention this hahaha). - Plz do not miss this class!!!!!!!!!!!! 여러분 요리를 못하거나 가서 뻘쭘할까봐 망설이고 계시다면 절대 그런생각 마시고 꼭 들으세요~ 정말 최고의 시간이었어요!!!
