Chengdu’s world famous cuisine made it only the second city in the world to achieve a UNESCO City of Gastronomy designation, so where better than a Chengdu family home to take a lesson in authentic Sichuan cooking? You will spend three and a half hours with a local host family who will take you step-by-step through the process of preparing a traditional Sichuan meal from market – to kitchen – to table, using family recipes handed down from generation to generation.
