Shaxi Cooking School with Apple Li

Learn Shaxi cooking at the Pear Orchard Temple

  • Cooking class at the Pear Orchard Temple, Shaxi Yunnan China
  • Lijiang Guides Apple Li, Pear Orchard Temple Shaxi Yunnan China

Start off on a bike ride with Apple through Shaxi Valley to learn about the foods that have been grown here for millenia. Stop to pick your own vegetables from the fields, grown by local farmers for their own families and who use no pesticides. If you choose to do the cooking class on a Friday, Apple will take you on a tour of the Friday Market where you will buy ingredients for your dishes. 

Head to the Pear Orchard Temple, a recently restored 400 year-old folk temple where we have build a new kitchen just for cooking classes. Here you'll spend the next 2-1/2 hours preparing and enjoying four dishes you will cook yourself. Gaze out over the Shaxi Valley from our dining terrace (weather permitting) and enjoy a complimentary pot of tea.

For reservations, speak to Sam at Old Theatre Inn +86 872 4722 296 or email us in advance of your stay to reserve places in the class.
