We had an amazing day at the Beijing local market and cooking in a private home in hutong area. My kids and I leart how to make Chinese dumplings. In the early morning, our guide Shirley took us to a local popular wet market for our ingredients, the experience was amazing - the vegetables are gigantic and so fresh. The Chef was just that - a chef. He even taught us good knife skills. Well it was not really a knife - it was a large cleaver. It was a wonderful way to meet new people and learn about local cuisine. This is highly recommended for all.
