Dreams of Wine and Duck

Every two months The Hutong and The World of Chinese are teaming up to bring you a culturally enriching and delicious cooking class. The World of Chinese is a bi-monthly English magazine dedicated to Chinese language and culture. Their pages are filled with personal experiences, human interest and the lighter quirkier side of all things Chinese.

In our second installment, Hutong Chef Sue will feature recipes from the book “Dream of Red Mansions.” One of China’s four great classical novels, the book focuses on 18th century aristocratic life in China and features many recipes that demonstrate the opulence of the era. One such dish is, Rice Wine Duck. Learn how to make it and more with Chef Sue.

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. Only at The Hutong. Sharing Culture. Sharing Knowledge.
