Learn Chinese cuisine with a creative fusion twist. The Hutong Kitchen’s Contemporary Chinese class teaches you how to combine authentic Chinese ingredients and flavors with Western cooking techniques and influences. Each hands-on class will consist of a three course menu: starter, main and dessert. There is a food-styling dimension to Fusion cuisine and you will learn to ‘plate up‘ your creations so that they are also pleasing to the eyes.

Come join Hutong Chef Sue, refine your culinary talents, and learn how to blend the best of East and West in your home kitchen.

The Hutong’s Chinese Kitchen series is designed to teach you the basics and beyond. Each of our cooking workshops covers wok and cutting techniques, tips on how to combine spices and provides the Chinese names of ingredients. You’ll learn how to make best use of fresh seasonal produce and prepare balanced Chinese meals for you, your friends and family. Take a gastronomic tour of China’s regions in our Chinese Kitchen.
