Quarantine Cook-Off ,Week 2! 

Welcome to join us for our second week The Hutong Quarantine Cook-Off!   The Hutong’s Quarantine Cook-Off is our fun way to engage our local community and to welcome all home-chefs who have emerged as a result of spending more time at home during this time. 

This week we’re making the-known ‘Sichuan Fragrant Spicy Pot‘ aka Ma La Xiang Guo (麻辣香锅). Bring the heat and win some awesome prizes. Recipe here.

We are not only very proud to be partnering with thebeijinger, & beijingKids the most comprehensive guides to China’s capital, but also give our sincere thanks to our great partners in our community who are sponsoring this activity and providing us with great prizes for our cook-off winners.

How does it work?
