No matter what the occasion,
No matter where or when, Chinese Southern Belle Aims at educating, serving, and having fun with the community of people that gather around the table. The table is the shared circle that brings us together, so let’s eat!
Your Saucy Thing Soy Ginger Sauce
is so good. I literally drink it…in soup! It’s full of flavor, not saltiness.
When my sister-in-law came into town, we visited CSB table at the Saturday morning Piedmont Park Farmer’s Market. We didn’t walk away empty handed…the “hottie” sauce is Fabulous!!!
My kids will eat anything with your sauces!
My family is normally very picky…
I used the Sweet Chili Peach to make a natural version of Sweet & Sour Pork. They loved it…and asked for seconds!
My son and I enjoyed meeting you at the Market!
Your booth was so busy with customers. But wanted you to know that your recipe on the Wild Wild East Teriyaki BBQ sauce bottle is so easy. I made it at work Wednesday during lunch using a hot plate, leftover rotisserie chicken, sesame oil, and frozen veggies. Oh, you should have seen people coming out of their offices. I had my own taste table. Thanks, our office loves the sauce.
CLASS & EVENT REVIEWS
Natalie and her mom…
are an amazing cooking team! You can see the love that they feel for each other and that they put into their cooking. The demonstration they did for the our Women’s Club was delightful. Everyone bought their sauces!
When I took your dumpling making class
I brought 3 friends with me… none of them had EVER taken a cooking class before, so it was great fun for all of us! It was fun too bringing my int’l guests to the Asian supermarket, as they had never seen anything like it before. I told the proprietor that I had been on the tour and how much I enjoyed them!
The hands on experience is GREAT!
Natalie really gave our class a deep dive into history, culture and why certain meals are prepared a certain way. I highly suggest this cooking class for any and everybody! I can not wait until the next sushi class or spring rolls class!!
Attended a hot pot cooking class…
in Natalie’s home. It was simply wonderful! The food was delicious and Natalie is the consummate hostess. She taught us all the nuances of preparing and serving the meal, a terrific party idea for friends. I highly recommend any chance you get to take a cooking class with the Chinese Southern Belle.
I Love Chinese Southern Belle!
I have both worked with Natalie and attended some of her events for awhile now. She is an inspiration and I highly recommend her services!
Natalie was incredible
Everyone had a super fun time and we learned a lot. I would happy to be a reference!
for doing another awesome job for the Harvard Club of GA Food & Wine/ Recent Grads Event!
You were incredible…
and we felt very honored to have you here in our home. Thank you again for blessing us with your knowledge and love. We all had a fabulous time!! It was, again, magical!
the ordering tips, and the cultural history were the highlights. Thank you for making my anniversary surprise so memorable and tasty!
Such a fun cooking demo. We had about 50 women at a meeting. Everyone learned so much! We were engaged by Natalie and Margaret and enjoyed eating all the delicious food they prepared! Definitely recommend.
We look forward…
to doing more with you. The balance of food, culture and diversity content was perfect for the youth.
All of the teachers loved…
The Chinese Southern Belle in-home cooking demo. Not only was the food delicious, but we all learned new cooking techniques, cutting methods and cultural information. So much fun!!!
Our guests loved it
and it was great for relationship-building. I couldn’t eat another bite! We’ll be bringing more groups.
The food, the ordering tips,
and the cultural history were the highlights. Thank you for making my anniversary surprise so memorable and tasty!
Loved Margaret & Natalie!
So fun to hear your Buddha-to-Bubba stories and enjoy the amazing feast.
Thanks so much!!
My son walked away from the event “inspired” –he wants to make sushi at home now!
Everyone loved it!
Natalie & Margaret Keng gave a Health Chinese Cooking Demonstration to our corporation for our Wellness Program. They were informative, entertaining and their food was delicious. We would have them again, everyone loved it!
It was absolutely amazing!
Natalie hosted a curated Buford Highway Restaurant tour me and my clients. Great restaurants and Natalie’s knowledge of the area is priceless.
Thanks for doing such a fabulous job
and caring about the participant experience, plus everything you did to make the class a success! We’d love to have you back to teach another class next season.
From the dumplings workshop…
to planning the menu, training our dining staff and being the event host/emcee…it was everything we had hoped for! Thank you so much for traveling to us.
Great teachers, great food, interactive.
Came to your Dumplings class, made hotpot at home!
Ni Hao Natalie, We had a GREAT time on the market tour with you – thanks so much! We returned to the supermarket on Sunday and enjoyed both Hot Pot (we ended up just using our electric fondue pot which worked great) and Dim Sum – we spread it across numerous hours. Thanks so much for the recipes… I will keep spreading the word about your great work! Many thanks!
The content was perfect
My daughter who is 9 joined me for the Natalie’s most recent dumpling class. The content was perfect and the amount of hands on cooking we had to do was also just enough. We really liked the hands on aspect. Loved having the napa salad along with the dumplings. Finishing with the Lychees was a very nice touch. I also appreciated the historical perspective of dumplings and for what occasions they are used for in China. Making the dumplings using store bought wraps and using home made dough was a nice comparison as well. We look forward to taking more classes Natalie.
for making last night so very special – the birthday boy and our guests had a blast. Appreciate all the energy and knowledge you both brought!
This Asian market tour was the best field trip we ever had!
I love the Chinese Southern Belle style
especially the mother-daughter synergy. You are wonderful chefs, teachers and entertainers!
Natalie gave our incoming first year international students a fabulous tour of an Asian International Supermarket. She is chocked full of information about food, sustainability, healthy choices, and ensures that her tours are “Hands on” (arranges for tastings and samples:) and FUN! And a quick mention and kudos towards the annual Chinese New Year Dinner coordinated and hosted by Natalie and her Mom – simply divine! Many thanks Natalie and Margaret for your healthy and delicious contributions to our community!
The food was amazing!
But Natalie and Margaret’s hosting made the experience special.
The Best Birthday
This is the best birthday I ever had!
I am a big fan of taking Asian cooking classes and have taken many over the years. Natalie & Margaret’s classes are the best!
I would recommend Natalie to anyone…
Natalie Keng (The Chinese Southern Belle) is just amazing! She and her Mom, Margaret entertained and educated eighteen, eleven year old girls at a birthday party. The girls cooked several dishes and learned about the Chinese culture. They had a blast! A few of the girls have gone on to prepare the dishes for their own families. Nearly every week, one of the girls’ parents stops me to tell me what a great idea this party was. I would recommend Natalie to anyone looking for an outstanding party and/or fun, delicious educational program.
Thanks Natalie and Mama!
We chose Chinese Southern Belle to help us with a team building project based on the recommendation of the AJC food editor! They did not disappoint! The dumplings were delicious! They were passionate about their craft as well as making a fun night for our employees.
We’ll be back with more clients. This was great for team-building and networking.
I could attend all of your events. I’m waiting for you to hit the Food Network!
