Drunken Monkey was opened in Taipei, Taiwan in 2011. At first, it was just a Taiwanese stir fry restaurant. Being English friendly, we’ve received several requests of holding cooking classes for foreigners in Taiwan. And finally, we made it happened.

Great afternoon of cooking and eating This is a class where you get to do the actual prep work and cooking; you're not just helping to add an ingredient or stirring. The instructors are very knowledgeable and safety conscious and share their experiences and insights into cooking at restaurants. We cooked way more than we could eat and I ended up taking home enough food for another meal.

台湾旅行の新しい楽しみ方。 主なスポットは行き尽くした4度目の台湾旅行で、こちらの料理教室をチョイス。 台湾と言えば安くて美味しい夜市のB級グルメが魅力ですが、日本の料理とは似ていながらも違う秘密を知りたくて友人6人のグループで申込みました。 他にもいくつかの料理教室を候補として見つけたものの、ほとんどは4時間で(こちらは2時間)料金が3倍前後しました。 料理は初心者だし、LCC航空券の片道分よりはり込むのもどうかと、リーズナブルなこちらを選ばせて頂きました。 日本語対応はありませんが、コース打ち合わせの段階から分かりやすい英語メールで不安なく決められて、実際行ってみるととても気持ちの良い若いご夫婦で、レッスン中もゆっくりと大変親切に教えてもらえました。 普段料理するのを見たことがない仲間同士での共同作業も新鮮でしたし、リピーターの多い台湾で次回は何をしようかと考えられている方に新しい楽しみ方としてオススメです!

Cooking class We had so much fun with Annie and Alex! They were the best cooking instructors and the dumplings they taught us to make were delicious. I am so glad that we chose to join them and the class is good value for money.

參加烹飪課程 主廚是加拿大來的老外,但是對於中國菜似乎相當了解。因為要跟國外同事一起進行team building, 所以選擇這個地方,大家都很滿意。 相當知性,從菜刀的使用到麵團麵粉的介紹,並且帶領我們做水餃皮,包水餃。 聽起來很簡單但是實際上花了超過兩三個小時。

Great dumpling class at The Drunken Monkey While visiting our daughter in Taipei she signed us up for a dumpling class at the Drunken Monkey. Chefs extraordinaire Annie and Alex walked us through dumpling lore and hands-on start to finish preparation. The 2 hour class was relaxed and wonderfully fun. We left full of delicious dumplings and with a nice booklet of recipes and dumpling history (and with tips for what to eat at the night market arond the corner). Don't pass it up.

Fun in the Kitchen I had no idea what to do with tofu, I just knew that Taiwanese tofu was the only type of tofu I liked. Alex and Annie made our tofu cooking class easy to understand, delicious and transferable to my home kitchen. These two have a great dynamic in the Kitchen that makes the class fun at any level. Thanks you two, for a fantastic time and I know I'll be back!

Amazing Sunday morning class! The dumpling making class with Annie and Alex was amazing! We had a private class for 3 of us and spent the morning learning the in's, out's, and tips to making amazing dumplings as well as just chatting and getting to know each other! Alex and Annie and very knowledgeable in their field and love to share what they know to help make the best recipes! I would highly recommend their classes to anyone wanting to take home a piece of Taiwanese culture and look forward to visiting them again in the future when guests come to Taiwan!

Amazing cooking experience! This was a great treat for me and some friends of mine visiting from Shanghai! The site was easy to navigate, the choices were interesting and fun and the response from Drunken Monkey was fast and efficient! On the day, we had such a fun time making dumplings, chatting, getting great tips and then we got to eat! Perfect day 🙂 I recommend this for teambuildings, fun days out with friends and just a treat!

Great Cooking Class = Team Building I took my team here for a team building event. Half of us were native to Taiwan and the other half had traveled from North America, so an english-speaking teacher was very helpful. Chef Alex and Annie were great! They were very helpful and informative of more than just dumplings, but in Taiwanese history and cooking in general. My team had a great time making dumplings together and most importantly EATING them. (They were delicious!) I can't wait to try the recipes back home here in the States. I highly recommend anyone to do this as a fun activity and social event.

    Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!
