    What to Expect
    Meet up your guide at the hotel lobby, and then your guide will take you to explore the dazzling local spice market with the assigned challenge for you to obtain some special ingredients and spices which will be used in the cooking class afterwards.
    After the fun experience in the local spice market, you will take a walk through the back streets to a hidden gem - a traditional Sichuan courtyard restaurant where soon the ingredients and spices you collected from the market will be put in use.
    Another break will be taken place in the courtyard with Sichuan Gaiwan tea as the traditional custom to entertain guests. After learning Sichuan tea culture, the food preparations will be guided by the professional chef. Follow your chef 's instructions step by step to process food till it gets well done.
    Enjoy your lunch or dinner that cooked by yourself. You will also enjoy the refreshments during the class.

    私は1人での参加でした。 他にアメリカの方が2名づつ2組が参加されており、合計で5人のグループでした。 私たちのガイドは成都が地元のLanceさんで、グループ全員が楽しめるよう上手くツアーを運営してくれました。そのおかげで、一人での参加でも気兼ねなく楽しむことができました。 分かりやすい英語で説明をしてくれますので、日本の方でもある程度の英語が喋れれば問題ありません。 朝市へみんなで行って、いろいろな食材を見て、試食したり、試飲したり、触らせてもらったりと、現地の食材だけでなく食文化まで体感することができました。市場の方ともコミュニケーションを取ることができます。日本にはない食材もいっぱいあり、見ているだけでもわくわくしました。 その後、みんなで料理を作ります。同じように教わって作っても、四川料理はいろいろなスパイスを入れるため、微妙な量の違いで人によって味が少しづつ違っていて、みんなで食べ比べをしたのも楽しかったです。 また、ガイドさんが写真や動画を撮ってくれて、後で送ってくれました。 このツアーはかなりおすすめです。 日本の方も、1人の方も、ぜひこのツアーに参加してみてください! I recommend this tour. I'm Japanese, and joined alone. I'm not native English speaker, but I could enjoy this great tour. Since tour guide (Mr. Lance) used plain English and very kind. So I also recommend...More
