Oriental Food is a small shop selling cooking ingredients mainly focused on Chinese, Japanese and Korean. The shop is not big enough to be a one-stop shopping destination. Therefore the owner couple choose the food they like to introduce to local community. For a while, the couple found out some cooking books misunderstand or not clear explained lots ingredients. It made customers confused. The couple started to cook dishes and sell in the shop. All ingredients are used from their shop. All dishes are followed authentic tastes. If customers like the dish, they will show them what have been used. The couple enjoy to share their cooking skills with customers. As the dishes get popular, they started selling fresh prepared bentos in Oriental Food. Now they are also doing local delivery and you can find them on UberEats. More and more people come to ask how to cook the dishes. Here comes the cooking classes. Customers can learn how to make the most popular bentos in Oriental Food now. The owner couple are lovely to talk with. They share their authentic cooking techniques as well as modern trends. So you can make a perfect Chinese, Japanese and Korean food too.

A really enjoyable afternoon! Simon couldn't have looked after us better - he even catered the class around our dietary requirements. We learnt a lot, drank lots and ate lots of bubbles. Couldn't recommend more! We'll certainly be back to enjoy some of Simons other classes. Thanks Simon!

I must say Mr Simon at Oriental Food is very friendly and very informative. I throughly enjoyed my session with him. He started the class with the origins of the bubble tea , the pros and cons of the tea itself and the business application of the drink. Due to the covid restrictions I was the only one I call hence . There is so much of knowledge and experience he shared , I got to learn a lot from him . I will be definitely going back for a full 5 class session with him very soon . Definitely recommend this to people who are keen on learning how to make bubble tea for business and personal use. regards M

Simon and Hannah were wonderful hosts! We learned not only how to make the dumplings, but a lot about the history of Chinese cooking and what ingredients and styles are preferred in which regions. The dumplings (and wontons!) were super fun to make! They showed us how to "roll" them up and then how to "seal" them, giving tips on our technique as we went along. We then cooked and ate many of the dumplings and wontons, and then they gave us little trays to take the rest home to cook there. The following day, much to my surprise (I don't have a good cooking track record haha), I was able to cook the remaining dumplings we'd made in class. I was so happy, it was a great dinner. Class was intimate (just me and my friend) and space was small (at the back to the shop) but more than enough for us, had everything you could possibly need. Also, very convenient to be able to buy the frozen pastry wrappers to take home right there in the shop. I'll be trying to copy the whole process, beginning to end, soon. Thanks Hannah and Simon!

This is very special food class. Never had it before. Well structured and very knowledgeable teacher. The dumpling itself taste lot different with normal ones. It combines very well with either spicy or not spicy meals/soup. Really good experience in Chinese food culture. Get tasted many signature dishes which you cannot find other places.

It was good fun to get hands on the flour, the mince and the pastry. First time to make though always order from takeaways. They make very different fillings with pork mince, shiitake and water chestnuts. Never had it any where else. Very best taste.

It was really fun and easy to learn the method! it is within the store so quite small but it made it feel more authentic. We learnt the technique and replicated at home and it went well!
