Cook home-style Vietnamese cuisine with a half-day Hanoi cooking class in a local family home. Visit a neighborhood market to shop for produce, learn essential phrases in Vietnamese, then join your host in the kitchen to prepare a classic Vietnamese lunch. This 4-hour cooking class includes pickup and drop-off at hotels in central Hanoi, tastings, and lunch, and it’s a fun way to explore Vietnam's food and flavors.
  • Cooking class in a Hanoi family home
  • Learn basic Vietnamese phrases with a local
  • Visit a neighborhood market
  • Cook a full lunch in a home kitchen
  • Includes lunch, snacks, and a drink
  • Pickup and drop-off at Hanoi hotels
Meet a driver at your hotel for 9am departure, then travel to a family home near the banks of the Red River. Start the day with a 30-minute class on the basics of speaking Vietnamese, learning some simple phrases that will help you shop, explore, and meet locals.
Next, head to the neighborhood market to practice your phrases—the market is a five-minute walk away from the house, with colorful displays of fresh food and spices. Discover the building blocks of Vietnamese cuisine, from aromatic herbs to vegetables, meats, fish, and tropical fruits, and find out how to select the best ingredients for the recipe you'll prepare.
When you return to the kitchen, it’s time to cook, and you’ll prepare lunch from start to finish. Marinate, spice, and blend sauces, and learn to decorate each dish Vietnamese-style with blossoms made from carrots, lemongrass, banana leaves, and hot peppers.
Sit down to the meal you’ve prepared, dining with views of the Red River and the Eiffel-designed Long Bien Bridge. After the meal, this tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel.

We were very fortunate to have booked this wonderful half day cooking class. Our host was Anna - she was wonderful! She picked us up at our Hotel and we rode bikes to the local market. We had the pleasure of cooking a wonderful meal with Anna and enjoyed our meal overlooking the Red River.
It was a truly memorable day and we enjoyed wonderful food!
