Cooking, Wu style

When she moved to Delhi with her husband in 2008, Wu was surprised at what passed for Chinese fare in the Capital. A self-appointed ‘ambassador for Chinese cooking’ — she decided to conduct workshops and teach people authentic recipes which could be made even with the ingredients available in Delhi. Her workshops happen weekly and usually take up to six people. Besides courses on Northern Chinese food and some modern Chinese recipes, she also teaches how to make pancakes, noodles and dumplings.

Art and photography
Besides being a professional cook, Wu is also an artist and a keen photographer, who has shot wildlife, people and landscapes through her travels. You can check out her work of art at
