Cloud 9 Cooking School

Posted by D under family

The other highlight of Yangshuo was Cloud 9 Cooking School.

The girls got to prepare four Chinese dishes. Using woks on gas burners, seriously scary cleavers and some cooking and food safety techniques that would earn the facility a nice long conversation with their insurance company – if they were located in the US.

But don’t mind that – the results were amazing. Truly delicious dishes, cooked together by our family. And those dishes ended up being our dinner. Just awesome.

The pictures don’t come close to capturing how excited and happy the girls were. Well, maybe this one does.

H2 is happy

This was definitely one of the absolute highlights of the trip – and maybe the best of the “cultural enrichment” activities.

The evening event (a local performance of folk song and dance on a stage right on the river) we skipped. Too tired, too many mosquito bites. We needed a break.
