Announcing the London Chinese Food Tour
ECCS has teamed up with Jessica Levene, a UK journalist who recently returned from China after having lived there for 3 years. She speaks fluent Mandarin and has a passion for Chinese food and is now intent on sharing her knowledge and experience. Thus we are introducing her London Chinatown Food Tour!
The tour is designed as a practical introduction to Chinese cuisine and Chinese cooking, and is particularly suited to people with little previous knowledge/experience of Chinese food but who want to learn more. The tour aims to dispel the myth that all Chinese food is greasy and unpalatable, and instead showcase the many diverse and delicious foods that China has to offer.
During the tour, participants will learn about the main regional differences in Chinese cuisine, the essential items for your cupboard if you want to cook Chinese food at home, and tips on buying unfamiliar ingredientssuch as tofu and Chinese fruit and vegetables. There will also be the optional extra of going for a light lunch/snack after the tour at the excellent Chinatown eatery The Baozi Inn.
The Chinatown Food Tour is on every 2nd Saturday of the month. Please email Jessie Levene to reserve your place.
Good news, ECCS students will be eligible for concession rates! And you can practise some of your Mandarin with Jessie!
