Our Courses

Chinese cuisine is one of the world's most famous cuisines with a history of thousands of years and with distinctive regional differences. The cuisine of Guanxi Province is simple but extremely tasty using the broad diversity of food that is produced in this fertile area.

Yangshuo Cooking School offers you the opportunity to learn how to cook real Village food with our skilled and friendly teachers who love to impart the stories and secrets of Chinese cuisine in a friendly fun atmosphere.

We emphasise a teaching style based on actually doing rather than watching.

We will take you shopping in the local markets to learn about the ingredients that we use in our dishes. After cooking the dishes we eat the meals together and informally explore Chinese culture,folk-lore and customs.

You will not only learn cooking, but also Chinese language and other Chinese cultures in the meantime. At Omeida you have many opportunity to interact with native Chinese people who are learning English and eager to share experience with you.
