Born and raised in Sichuan, Luxi has always been into cooking. At home, she was taught to cook classic Sichuanese cuisine, and to appreciate food with rich flavors and warm colors. She soon became captivated by the amazing diversity of Chinese cooking styles. After a short stint in Europe, she opened a cookery school in Dali in 2009 called Rice & Friends, which rapidly became one of the most popular attractions in the region. While living and working in Yunnan, she developed a fascination for local Yunnanese cuisine. She is in charge of all of our culinary tours.
