Chinese cooking class/school/course (in Mandarin) in Taipei?

Postby terence » 24 Sep 2006, 12:21

你們好,

Does anyone know of a few good cooking classes/schools in Taipei?

I'm really not interested in more classes on European cuisine, but would love to spend some time in Chinese cooking classes (包子,海參,etc.), possibly even taught in Chinese so that my food vocabulary improves dramatically. :)

Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

謝謝

The adult education colleges 社區大學 have lots of classes, and they're pretty cheap. It's worth having a look.

Their website (Chinese) is: http://www.tpcc.tp.edu.tw/

The China Youth Corps and Weichuan Foods are quite well known locally for their cooking classes. You can phone them, or drop by to get some information:

China Youth Corps
www.cyc.org.tw
45, Kuanchien (Guanqian) Rd, that's the street next to the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Tower across from the railway station

www.weichuan.com.tw
they're on Songjiang Rd just north of Nanjing E Rd, in the building that houses a Barista and a Toyota dealership.

Man of Sand, is there any way to make this a sticky? I 've noticed a few folks have asked about this before (myself included a year or so back) but I never got round to starting up. The OP has given me some inspiration... hmmmmm

Jodie (of Jodie's Kitchen) was offering classes a while back. She's contactable via Bikefarm.
Have I reached 500 posts yet? I'm giving up forumosa when I get to 500. I promise.

Theres a restaurant supply place in Banqiao that offers cooking classes, or at least they used to. I'll find out more sooner or later. Don't have the address now.

I had some great Taiwanese cooking classes with Jodie last year. She has a website, http://kitchen.j321.com

She charged about $120 (US) for a private class for one, but they really were amazing and absolutely worth that, in my opinion. She's very enthusiastic about good food and she really wants to share that with everyone. I think she only ever teaches one or two people in each class. So you won't be in a group of 15 backpackers like a cooking school in Thailand! :lol:

Almost every recipe she taught me was not only a revelation, but also delicious. She's a very good teacher, too, by that I mean that I now actually know how to make the things she taught me, and I still do make my favorite ones, like sesame noodles and the weird but wonderful spicy pineapple :notworthy:

A five hour class for 4000 ntd sounds like a good deal
