London's Chinatown keeps its spirits up by getting chefs and restaurants to share recipes

London's chinatown campaign during lockdown

London's Chinatown has certainly been one of the city's hardest-hit areas by Covid-19, having seen its business decimated weeks before the official lockdown started.

So it's good to hear about a new campaign to keep at least the spirit of the place alive, until we can visit again. #BringingChinatownHome is all about allowing Londoners to explore, take inspiration and enjoy Chinatown without leaving their living room.

To take part, head to their Instagram page which will be exploring Chinese culture, doing basic Mandarin classes and - most relevant to foodies - putting up loads of food and drink content.

Every weekend there will be recipe sharing and home cook-alongs with chefs, foodie influencers and a selection of Chinatown London’s top restaurants. So far, they've had MasterChef winner Ping Coombes putting up a Dalgona coffee tutorial, author Lizzie Mabbott sharing a recipe for seabass with ginger and spring onion and Rasa Sayang. has put up a recipe for Homemade Ban Mian.

If you get inspired to cook yourself, you'll be able to order ingredients from the area's supermarket See Woo which has just launched See Woo To You, delivering what you'll need to make your own Chinese dishes within a five-mile radius of the store.
