Chinese Cooking Class in Edinburgh
by Liv
February 11, 2010

This is my first blog on blogspot for my Chinese cooking class. I’m an experienced chef who is married to a lovely English man and currently settled in Edinburgh.

I’ve always had a passion for cooking and I’ve learnt so many amazing Chinese foods from my grandmother (she is originally from Guangdong), grandfather (he is originally from Sichuan) and my mother.

I was born and grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and I also lived in Shanghai for one year. I’ve been surrounded by Chinese and Taiwanese food all my life and I studied in one of the top 100 hospitality colleges in the world. My teacher in college was two times cooking Olympics champion.

I will teach you how to cook proper Chinese/Taiwanese food, how to choose the ingredients and different sauces in the chinese supermarket. I can even teach you some Chinese language as I’m completely fluent in both traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese. I ensure you will get more than what you paid for and my class is worth every penny !

Why don’t you join me to explore different Chinese foods?! I will teach you until you can cook a Chinese meal at home for your friends and family. Don’t be afraid if you think you only have a little experience in cooking or none at all. I’ll be very patient to teach you until you fully understand. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

You contact me about fee, class schedules and all kind of information at the following email addresses:

      Thank you very much for getting in touch.
      But sadly I don’t offer class anymore but you can have a look of my cookbooks “Home-Style Taiwanese Cooking” and “Home-Style Chinese Cooking”. They are available on Amazon. 🙂
