Black Sesame Kitchen is a reservations-only cooking school and dining space in the heart of old Beijing. Chinese-American author Jen Lin-Liu opened Black Sesame Kitchen in 2008 to promote the understanding of Chinese cuisine and to create a convivial setting for socializing and exchange between China and the rest of the world. Since 2008, they have been cooking in the hutongs of Beijing.
They serve a 10-course set menu nightly. The menu changes with the season, though there are our mainstays, like our pan-fried dumplings, our warm shiitake mushroom salad, red-braised pork, and black sesame ice cream with candied fruit/sweet potatoes.
Black Sesame Kitchen offers private dining and cooking classes. Go to their website to see all the experiences they offer.
