Beijing cuisine is often hearty and heavy, perfect for the cold winter months, or in the summer alongside a cold local Yanjing beer. Take an exciting culinary journey of the capital and explore the city you love through its best dishes. Learn how to make three classic local recipes using fresh and seasonal ingredients, and also learn the story behind the recipes.
Once a season we host a joint Tastes of Beijing class with our good friends from The Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center.
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 we provide the Chinese names of ingredients.

Only at The Hutong. Sharing Culture. Sharing Knowledge.
