Cooking class in Vietnam

More than eating delicious special dishes, another good way to immerse yourself in the culinary culture of Vietnam is to take a cooking lesson.

Where?
Cooking classes can be taken almost everywhere. Of course, the main cities Hanoi and Saigon are offering many opportunities to learn how to cook special Vietnamese dishes. Also in smaller cities like Hoi An it is possible to arrange a cooking class right where the vegetables are growing, in the peaceful Tra Que Vegetable Village. More creative, the cruise companies sailing on Halong Bay are offering cooking lessons as well.


What?
The excursion can eventually include a market tour where you will be shown the ingredients used by local people and choose the meat, fish, vegetables and herbs you will need according to the dish you will prepare.
The chef will teach you the way to cook Vietnamese food while reminding you the names of the ingredients. You will have a chance to learn how to make spring rolls, traditional noodle dishes, grill meat, prepare seafood and even some deserts like caramelized bananas. The suggestion of dishes is varied depending on the part of Vietnam you will be. After the course, seat down and enjoy the result of your work for lunch or dinner. You won’t need to remember every steps, the chef will give you the recipes so you can practice by yourself back home.


When?
You are able to attend to a cooking class in the morning, for lunch or in the afternoon, for dinner. Cooking classes are available every day; however, it’s a good activity to consider doing on a rainy day.


Who?
Private lessons are available, but you can join a group to meet other visitors on a cooking class. It is a fun activity for families, friends, couples and solo travelers from all ages. You don’t need to be a good cook to book a cooking class because the chef will always be here to assist you.
