Free Chinese cooking course for everybody! Maybe everybody knows the baozi – a dish so popular with the Chinese. Its base is a kind of bread-like steamed pasta, which is flavoured with meat or vegetable filling. It is an extremely tasty and popular dish, which is by no means impossible to make. This year, in a one-occasion free cookery course organised by the Confucius Institute, everybody can learn the tricks of making baozi.
Participation is free but registration is necessary.
The course is full.
