The FUN:) Team has visited over 70 schools across England since 2015, demonstrating to students the variety and accessibility of Chinese cuisine while encouraging them to cook their own dishes.

Our school demonstrations are suitable for the 2016 OCR, AQA, and WJEC Eduqas GCSE exam boards; they are also compatible with other qualifications and younger students. Each visit from our FUN:) Team includes:

  • An informative presentation on Chinese food culture and cuisine (slides include the symbolism of festival foods and Chinese menu planning).

  • Step-by-step demonstration from a trainer on the preparation and cooking of a chosen popular Chinese dish with opportunities for students to ask questions - the demo can be modified based on students skill level.

  • Practical participation by students assisted by FUN:) Team.
  • (Optional) Mini-competition for students to practice presentation and garnishing.

  • At the end of the session, students will have a greater understanding of Chinese food culture, and know where to go for further information.
