Cooking Classes

Chinese Cooking Classes are offered quarterly by UNL-CI teachers. We started in September 2012 by making traditional dumplings, a cultural activity well-received by the community. Currently, instructors from Confucius Institute demonstrate by cooking two dishes in each class and attendees have hands-on experience following detailed recipes. Every person has the opportunity to sample the food made in class.
Many participants find stir-fry an easy way to fix meals, and have had fun making different shapes of Wontons and Crab Rangoon. Other popular dishes featured in past Chinese Cooking Classes include: Moo Shoo Pork, Chinese Pepper Steak, Cashew Chicken, and Kung Pao Shrimp.

Hunan cuisine, originated from Hunan province in China, is quite popular in Chinese restaurants and well-known for its spicy flavor. Hunan beef is stir-fried beef strips with vegetables and chili pepper or chili sauce.
