What You Can Expect
Vietnamese food is healthy, simple to cook and downright delicious. This half day cooking tour in Hanoi will provide you with a hands-on lesson on how to shop for, and to cook, authentic Vietnamese food.
Your Hanoi cooking class will be held at the Hanoi Cooking Centre, a new complex nestled on the edge of Hanoi's famous old quarter and close proximity to the picturesque Truc Bach and West Lake.
Your half-day tour begins with a walk around the famous Chau Long market, nearby Truc Bac Lake. Here you will learn more about the various local ingredients including vegetables, fruits and Vietnamese herbs and spices.
Two-minutes away from the Chau Long Market is the Hanoi Cooking Centre. The Vietnamese cooking class is held in small groups (2 to 16 people) to enhance interactivity with the head chef. You will have one cooking station between 2 persons for your hands-on lesson.
At midday sit down and enjoy your own Vietnamese creations accompanied by local beer or wine plus receive detailed recipes cards to take home.
A fabulous tour. Our driver arrived at the specified time and delivered us to the Hanoi cooking centre where we were met by Tracey who took us to the fresh market for our experience of grocery shopping Vietnamese style. Fantastic experience, very interesting and informative and a bit of an eye opener. Back at the school we were shown our cooking stations and after watching a demonstration it was our turn to prepare and cook delicious, fresh, tasty vietnamese food . The food we had cooked was served to us in the restaurant upstairs with a glass or two of delicious local "Dalat" wine.. The staff were both friendly and knowledgable. This is a very well run and organised tour and comes very highly recommended.
HAd a fascinating day with our guide. It was great to see Ha Noi early in the morning. Also, the cooking class was super!! We were promised recipes to be emailed to us but that hasn't happened yet.
How well did this go recommend to everyone class was great learnt heaps the cooking school was fab
This was a most interesting morning spending time in the local market shopping for and learning about the ingedients, which we cooked in the Cooking Centre and then had for lunch.
The staff were very friendly and we had a jolly time making our recipes!
We even took our Spring Rolls home with us to eat later - crooked and not very perfect in shape as they came out!
Yet we were very proud of our efforts !!
Thank you to the staff at the Cooking Centre for a most enjoyable and fun-filled morning !!
Wishing you all every success at the Hanoi Cooking Centre!
The cooking class was great fun and the food turn out deliciously. We particularly love the information on the various ingredients and preparation methods imparted; it inspired a subsequent shopping spree on local cooking ingredients that we took home!
