Chef Wen was highly knowledgeable about the cuisine and was a delight to watch. His class was very hands on and we were involved in every step of the way. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to further their knowledge of Chinese cuisine, or who simply enjoys eating Chinese cuisine.

Chef Wen has 40 years as a chef. That much is clear, we started off with some knife skills and made some cool decorations with his cleaver as our other guests were in route. He brought his son and wife and they all helped make the night a total blast. Jing(sp?) was a bun master! She helped teach us how to fold them just right. What a talent! Allan(Sp?), Chen Wen's son, was very helpful in translating some of the finer points of the preparation. Very awesome family! I speak a little Mandarin so that made it even better : ) We started with bun dough, letting it rise and do its thing. Then we made the tan tan noodles. The sauce was AMAZING! Wowowowowowow! Then we made potatoes with cane sugar, I didn't know about this traditional dish, and I lived in China for a while! IT was very cool, a totally delicious dish that is a cool party trick as well! String sugar makes it fun to show off! Then we steamed the buns, which were freaking incredible. So authentic! Besides preparing this mouth-watering feast, he kept our kitchen spotless. The only sign we had a professional chef in our midst was the lingering aroma of the killer food! Do not pass up a meal with Chef Wen and his family!
