The student who were already familiar with Chinese food and cooking methods were able to further their knowledge of the cuisine with presentations from Ming-Ai giving a brief introduction to Chinese food and Lee Kum Kee who took the students through the cooking process. Feedback from the students stated: "I really liked it" and "I learned new things about Chinese food."
