One really fun thing to do when in Yangshuo is to take a cooking class. I found one online that a few people had recommended and booked a class with them. http://www.yangshuocookingschool.com/courses.html I took the Course 1 as I was curious about making the so-called famous local dish of beer fish. It was a fun and educational day for sure.
First place to go was the market to pick up the fresh and local foods.
Dogs. as you can see, the lady was not happy with me taking this picture. Seeing the dogs hanging didn't bother me too much. however, in a different stall I saw the live dogs in cages waiting to be killed. that really shook me up pretty bad.
Our classes were taught at the school owners house. she had a back area where there was a little room for cooking and a patio area for dining. very beautiful.
Alright, shall we see some cooking lessons, and more importantly food pics?
Great, here we go!
Beer fish. I actually had this dish a few times and didn't like it too much, but this style was really tasty. maybe because I used less beer so it wasn't as soupy or maybe just because I made it myself.
