Your teacher

We are a wife-and-husband team running a small shop called Oriental Food at north London. Shop sells cooking ingredients mainly focused on Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

The shop is not big enough to be a one-stop shopping destination. Therefore we choose the food we like to introduce to local community.

For a while, we found out some cooking books misunderstand or not clear explained lots ingredients. It made customers confused. We started to cook dishes and sell in the shop. All ingredients are used from the shop. All dishes are followed authentic tastes. If customers like the dish, we will show them what have been used.

We enjoy to share our cooking skills with customers. As the dishes get popular, we started selling fresh prepared bentos in Oriental Food. Now we are also doing local delivery and you can find us on UberEats, Deliveroo, etc.

More and more people come to ask how to cook the dishes. Here comes the cooking classes. Customers can learn how to make the most popular bentos in Oriental Food now. We are lovely to talk with. We share our authentic cooking techniques as well as modern trends. So you can make a perfect Chinese, Japanese and Korean food too.

Booked for a dumpling class.

Everything was set up neatly. The teachers were very friendly, funny and helpful. We chatted a lot and had a great time.

During the lesson, my dumplings were falling apart but they both helped me fix the specific issues. Now, I have a better understanding on what to do.

Absolutely looking forward to booking our next class! Would 100% recommend and even bring friends.

Absolutely loved this class! Simon and his wife were so friendly, welcoming and patient with their teaching. The venue was clean and spacious, and easy to access. I was there with five friends and we all had so much fun and learned fantastic new dumpling making skills. Make sure you don't eat before you go, as you'll make a lot of food!
Next time I'm visiting London, I will definitely be back to try making some bao buns!

I was lucky enough to book on to the dumpling/wonton class whilst visiting London for work. Simon and Han Yan were welcoming, friendly and most importantly, patient. My first dumplings were terrible but they had definitely improved by the end and they were delicious! I would recommend this class to any dumpling fan and can't wait to recreate them for my family when I get home.

I had a great time at Simon’s class - they were personable and knowledgable (about the food and about the history of it too). The class was very hands on and we got to enjoy it at the end too! Would highly recommend.
