Where you'll be

This experience will take place at a studio in a protected loft house built in 1920, located in one of the most authentic old residential areas of Shanghai. Over 90% of the lanes and buildings here are residential areas of 1910s and 1920s.

Super recomendo essa atividade, que é um jeito de, pela comida, entender mais os hábitos, cultura e tradições chinesas!

What a wonderful way to participate in the vibrant food culture of Shanghai with a convivial group of locals and travelers. Our group of 5 visitors (2 from Taipei and 3 from North America) and 4 local residents spent a lively evening eating terrific food that was beautifully presented. Bonn was a warm and engaging host, and communicated very well via AirBnB before the feast. The studio is about a 15minute walk from the nearest metro stop, but it was interesting to see a neighborhood that’s removed from the main tourist centers.

What a wonderful experience celebrating Chinese New Year eve with a diverse group of 9 people at the round table. Zhiyi was a great host and explained many Chinese traditions to us. The food was exceptional - there were 10 dishes including traditional Chinese dessert and rice wine. The food tasted much better and healthier than what you’d find at any restaurant. Some of the dishes included chicken slices, bone broth soup, leafy green vegetables, steamed fish, braised meatballs, spicy tofu... The chef is an aspiring young cook and is truly talented. Would highly recommend!

I've been celebrating the Chinese New Year with my family my entire life since I'm a Chinese girl, but it's pretty amazing doing it with someone from other parts of China even from other countries. Zhiyi is Cantonese and Wenfei is from Shanghai, so we shared a lot about different traditions in different cities with each other. Also it was really cool to have Thad who's from Britain come over and join us.Almost forgot to talk about the food prepared for us 'cause it was just like what I would have at home on New Year's Eve except that they really did a better job than my mom did. Thanks for everything Zhiyi and Wenfei have done for us. It was quite a wonderful eat-chat-and-laugh night.
