Event Overview

Have you ever considered traveling to another part of the world to explore and learn about another culture through food? If so, you’re in luck! Chicago has an strong Chinese community and we're going to eat our way through the Chinatown neighborhood while learning about their fascinating history and architecture.

In this 2-2.5 hour tour, Dabblers will learn about the many varieties of tea and the importance of tea to Chinese culture, learn about woks and other necessary equipment for Chinese cooking techniques, gain tips on how to stock a Chinese pantry at home, find out what dim sum is all about, discuss the many diverse regional traditions of Chinese cooking over lunch and of course, indulge in Chinese food and drink.

Be prepared for a delicious culinary ride where we'll learn and enjoy Chinese dishes and appreciate the Chinese culture as represented in Chicago's Chinatown

    Great class that took me to an area of the city that I have not been to before. The teacher was knowledgeable and the food was great! I will definitely go back to Chinatown to explore more on my own.
