August - September Issue Out Now - Download Here!
In a city like Shanghai, food is everywhere with plentiful, endless options. It can be hard to manage what your family eats as well as where to shop for food that is safe and healthy. Whether you are interested in cooking classes, healthy eating options, indulging in rich cuisine, or living on the edge and trying something totally new – you can find it in the city.
This issue of Urban Family is all about food in Shanghai and making it easier for families to enjoy the foods they love while getting to try some new experiences as well. In the cover story, our urban farming expert Ben shows us how to grow produce at home, FIELDS China provides easy-to-make snack suggestions for the kids, and Jamie Barys helps us navigate China’s wet markets. We also take a look at The Patio for getting our summer BBQ fix.
This issue taps into wellbeing and discusses how dietary habits affect our kids and has a roundtable discussion on school lunches in international schools. You’ll find tips from a teacher on how to get your child prepared for the new school year and another hilarious piece from Tiger Father all about his daily struggle to provide dinner options.
Although there are boundless choices for eating and cooking in China, sometimes it can be overwhelming to navigate. Urban Family is here to be your guide and help dip your toe in the incredible world of food that exists in Shanghai.
