Beijing Cooking School was first opened by Miss Chunyi Zhou
in 2006. She was soon joined by her brother, Chao, and in
2013 they changed the name of the kitchen to the Beijing
Cooking School to better reflect what they were doing.

Chunyi and Chao grew up in a professional chef's family, so food has always been important to them. But after they began
to travel, they saw how learning to cook great food could form important memories for visitors. On top of that,
it had became obvious that young people were relying more and more on restaurants for dinner and forgetting the joy of
cooking for themselves. They believe that the kitchen is the soul and pillar of the family. It brings people love and happiness,
as well as nutrition. More than a decade on and Chunyi and Chao still love inviting guests into their kitchen to learn to cook,
eat traditional Chinese food together, and share Chinese culture.

Want to know more about authentic Chinese cuisine?
Whether you're a professional chef, a brave soul who've never lifted a Chinese cleaver, a couple seeking a different
side of Beijing, or a family or group who cooks to impress, Beijing Cooking School has something for you.
We have over 100 classic and creative dishes from over a dozen Chinese culinary categories up our sleeves
and we run classes at various times of the day, six days a week.

  • All classes are hands-on - you see what the chef sees.
  • All classes are taught in English by a professionally licensed Chinese chef.
  • Take-home recipes are provided for every dish cooked.
  • Join the optional market tour (1.5 hours) before your cooking class to learn more about Chinese produce and culture.
