Chinese Cooking Class: Meat Mooncake

Learn to make some delicious Chinese festival food at this cooking class in London.



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 6     label £80 - £100 (£80 for Weekdays, £100 for Weekends)

Dive into Chinese culture with this celebratory London activity and learn to make a festival favourite food – mooncake! If you're looking for unique gifts for a special party idea, this class is ideal.

Mooncake is enjoyed during the Chinese mid-autumn festival – a celebration widely observed around the world by Chinese communities. There are hundreds of varieties of mooncake (月饼) across China and the flavour is a combination of sweet and savoury. In your cooking class, you'll learn to make the style of mooncake most popular in Shanghai (上海肉月饼), with meat filling. Your finished mooncake will be much different to the varieties you'll see in most Chinese stores in the UK.

At this Chinese cooking class, you will unwind in a spacious shop with a small group. It can often even be a private class if booked on weekdays. You will get full attention from chef tutors, Hanna and Simon. They will answer all your questions and share beautiful stories about mooncakes.

During your cooking class, you'll learn to:

  • Make the cake's pastry.
  • Prepare pork mince filling.
  • Wrap your cake.
  • Bake your cake.

This style of mooncake doesn't require baking tins, moulds or craft knives meaning it's easy to create again at home once you've learnt the process.

Allergy information
  • Gluten and soy are essential
  • The mooncake recipe used in this class traditionally includes lard and pork meaning that it isn't suitable for vegetarians or vegans.

If you'd like to learn about Chinese culture and make a traditional celebratory mooncake, or if you're keen to explore new cooking styles and recipes, this London cooking class is a brilliant way to expand your knowledge. By the end of your class, you'll have learnt some fascinating stories about the history of mooncake and you'll have your very own moon cake to enjoy!

Add-on Classes
  • Why not add a few classes together and learn how to make even more delicious treats!
  • It is cheaper to book add-on classes than book them separately.

We are a wife-and-husband team running a small shop called Oriental Food in North London. Our little shop sells cooking ingredients from China, Japan and Korea – as well as other Asian countries!

As the shop is not big enough to be a one-stop shopping destination, we like to curate the food and ingredients we sell and focus on introducing only the ingredients we love to the local community.

As we both have a passion for cooking and sharing our love of food with others, we started to cook our own dishes to sell in our shop. If customers like the dish, we love showing them the ingredients that have been used from our shop!

As the dishes got increasingly popular, we started to sell freshly prepared Bentos and even started doing local delivery (find us on UberEats and Deliveroo).

More and more people came to us to ask how we cook our dishes and that's how our fun and friendly cooking classes and tasting experiences were born! Come along and let us share with you our authentic cooking techniques as well as modern culinary trends. That's right, you can make the perfect Chinese, Japanese and Korean food too!

Hannah taught me how to make the pastry for savoury mooncakes, and it turned out it to be very useful for me. I attempted the recipe at home for the Mid Autumn Festival, and the results were delicious. I only wish I had more time to finish that class until the end. Thank you Hannah!
