Sichuan cuisine is one of China's many regional cuisines, but it has found popularity around the world thanks to its punchy flavors and aromatic spices, including the Sichuan peppercorn. First, you'll perfect the sizzle of kung pao chicken with its harmony of Sichuan peppercorns and peanuts. Then whip up a savory Sichuan-style shredded beef and crackle through dry-fried green beans spiced just right. Sweeten the deal with a soothing red bean dessert soup.

She jumped around too much. She focused on too many things at once. It would’ve been nice to finish one thing and move onto. The next was hard to follow her.

It was an amazing class. She went at a good pace and stopped when people needed clarification on anything. The instructions were delivered in a clear and concise manner and she was really engaging to everyone online. I felt like I was right there in her kitchen!
