One of the joys of visiting China is the chance to discover some of the most delicious, and diverse, food on the planet. Each region of China offers myriad specialities and as you travel around on our 15 day ‘gourmet adventure’ you will get to try a variety of different regional styles of cooking as well as learn the basics of a couple of them. Starting in Beijing you will sample the world famous Peking Duck as well as an ancient Mongolian dish. Moving on to Xian you will make noodles with a family before trying local street food. In Chengdu you will taste the famous spicy Sichuan cuisine before having a cooking course in laid back Yangshuo. The tour ends in Hong Kong, one of the Asia’s great food centres, where you have a couple of days to dine Cantonese style.
