What You’ll Do
Chinese cuisine is rich and varied, shaped by a bevvy of ingredients and cultural influences over the centuries. During this edible experience, chef and cookbook author Dorothy Huang introduces an eight-course meal of classic Chinese dishes, and explains how each one is commonly prepared. After the meal, Huang leads a walk through a Chinese supermarket, where guests can pick up Chinese vegetables, condiments, and ingredients to take home.
Enjoy an Eight-Course Meal
The exact dishes may differ, but the menu will likely resemble the following: pot-stickers with dipping sauce, Peking duck, stir-fried beef with Chinese broccoli, General Tso’s chicken, shrimp with cashews, barbecued pork crispy noodles, sizzling beef platter, and shrimp fried rice.
Bring Home Knowledge and Food
After eating and learning about Chinese cuisine, you’ll walk through a Chinese supermarket, where you can buy ingredients to cook at home.
Culinary Instructor and Cookbook Author
Ever since Dorothy Huang emigrated from her native China more than 30 years ago, she’s been spreading the joys of Chinese cooking wherever she goes. Her diverse experience includes teaching cooking classes from New York to Houston, holding culinary demonstrations at Lord and Taylor, and promoting healthy eating through classes for Weight Watchers. She’s also the author of two cookbooks, Chinese Cuisine Made Simple and Dorothy Huang’s Chinese Cooking, which has been reprinted six times.
Her efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. “If the essence of a culture can be discovered through its food, no ethnic cuisine fits this notion better than Chinese,” wrote Jane Wu, art director for the Texas Highways magazine. “The consummate guide to all flavors Chinese—at least in Texas—is Dorothy Huang, who has hosted food tours of Houston’s Chinatown, along with her legendary cooking classes, for more than 35 years.”
