The Hutong Master Chef Culinary Camp Age 8 and Up
Easy – no prior cooking experience required!
Our 5-day Culinary Day Camp, beginning 9:30 AM and finishing by 15:30 each day, walks participants step-by-step from the basics of flavor and spices to cooking full-fledged dishes and coming up with their own menus.
And the best part? Absolutely no cooking experience necessary – total beginners or budding chefs are both welcome!
In our cozy courtyard kitchen, participants will learn how to safely handle a Chinese cleaver as they practice time-honored cooking techniques. Kids will have fun in our kitchen and use their creative skills to put together unique flavors of their own design, all while led and guided by our in-house chefs with years of culinary experience.
Our fun, relaxed cooking camp will culminate in a “cook-off” challenge. Participants will pair up, plan their own dish, purchase ingredients during our market tour, and cook up a storm!
Hands-on Cooking Lessons
A Journey of Flavor
In the culminating event of our culinary camp, participants will be paired up in teams to plan for, shop for and prepare a dish or two to be served to a panel of judges.
Participants will join in the tasting and the voting process, and will receive feedback from each of the judges before the winners will be announced. We’ll end in a shared festive meal and celebration!
Our program includes a visit to a rural farm located just in the outskirts of the city. It is a farm that provides a wide range of fresh, healthy, produce for the Beijing community. Students will be given an in-depth tour as well as participate in various activities aimed at learning and understanding where our food begins, and then how it moves along the supply chain from sales to packaging to distribution. From plant identification, to cultivation, to pickling their own produce, students will gain first-hand experience of local farm life and improve their awareness of the source of their ingredients and the process from farm to table.
