Cooking with tea is as old as the history of tea itself. The ancient Chinese used tea in cooking as a way to enhance flavors – from braising with tea liquid to using the leaves as a coating or seasoning. Come to the Hutong’s exclusive Cooking with Tea class and learn a side of tea that you never imagined possible! Join resident chef Sophia as she combines her expertise with Chinese teas and The Hutong’s wonderfully diverse kitchen to produce Chinese food that inspires, yet can be replicated in your home.
Here you will begin with brief discussion on the tea leaves alone and gradually bridge them with the dishes that will be cooked, drawing out all the flavors that these wonderful leaves can contribute to everyday cooking.
