Are you looking for unique gifts, or want to make different twist for parties? This could an edible gift.
Dive into Chinese culture with this celebratory London cooking class and learn to make a festival favourite food – moon cake!

There are hundreds of varieties of moon cake across China and the flavour is a combination of sweet and savoury. In your cooking class, you'll learn to make the style of moon cake most popular in Shanghai (上海肉月饼). Your finished moon cake will be much different to the varieties you'll see in most Chinese stores.

Moon cake (月饼)is enjoyed during the Chinese mid-autumn festival – a celebration widely observed around the world by Chinese communities. Learn more about this festival and the unique food that accompanies it in this fun cooking class.

Guided by your expert cooking teacher, you'll learn how to make a tasty moon cake. Moon cake has many beautiful stories behind it and you'll learn all about them as you chat with your experienced teacher.

During your cooking class, you'll learn to:

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

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

The moon cake 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 moon cake, or if you're keen to explore new cooking styles and recipes, this London cooking class is a brilliant way to spend some time. By the end of your class, you'll have learnt some fascinating stories about the history of moon cake and you'll have your very own moon cake to enjoy!

This class could be held online as well. Please send us a message if you want to book an online session.



What you'll get
  • All the ingredients you need to make your own moon cake to eat or take home.

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.

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!
