Then if by your own country you mean the west, don't learn how to cook in China. The food that 'western' Chinese restaurants serve (even the 'authentic' ones, is a million miles away from what you get over here.

 

Even my wife, (who is Chinese) says of 'western' Chinese restaurants that it "all tastes the same" The problem is if you wanted to be genuinely authentic you would go bust as the cost of Chinese fruits and vegetables in the 'west' are prohibitive.

I also looked for learning chinese cuisine, but until I find someone to teach me - I learn myself.

I know it might be "not traditional", but some of my friends (Chinese) who tasted it, said that I cook better then them  

But, what is different, I'm not looking for a school, but "tutor" Smile

Btw? anybody wants to learn some Polish dishes? Wink

Visit the Book Center or some other book stores to find some recipes in Chinese or cuisine books. Of course, your understanding of Chinese may help you further. Besides, there are some live TV programs or online cuisine ones, free of charge totally to train you to be a skilled book. Search them and have a good luck.

Hi Rain;

I was looking into that too when I first came to China. 

There is a place in Wuyang Cun called "Say Cheese" they have a fully stocked kitchen and they will teach you how to cook. But in the end, I decided to have someone teach me at my place because I can learn to prepare and she taught me how to use my kitchen and taught me about prep work.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China
A:Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a job teaching at a university and had no degrees at all. He said he just had someone photoshop a degree for him. So it happens and people who are from non native english speaking countries get jobs all the time. But these people are going to generally make less money than native speakers or live in fear of getting reported and deported when someone figures out their work history or degree is bogus. So if you don't have a degree or work history this probably isn't an ideal way to make money. -- walternc3
