This was a fantastic little side excursion. The utmost care was taken to make sure that we were comfortable on the drive to the markets, and of course the chaotic dance of the traffic was part of the entertainment. The market was very interesting, and our guide/chef explained that this food market was where all the restaurants buy their supplies from. The locals find it too expensive and shop at their own local market. Our chef Dory, told us the names of everything and what they were used for.
After the market we were taken to another location for the cooking class, which was cool and comfortable and we were given icy cold green tea. The class was fabulous and she made it very easy to follow. Even my husband did a great job! We enjoyed the meal afterwards, and it was delicious! I would highly recommend this tour if you interested in learning about foods in other cultures. It wasn't over the top different and it was all very clean and healthy food. Five stars from me!
The whole experience was fantastic! Pick up from our hotel was on-time and in a nice new car with a great driver. We had a fantastic guide at the market place, then headed off with our ingredients to the cooking school.
The cooking class was so much fun, the teacher was excellent, quality of instruction and food was 1st class.
We would highly recommend this as something to do whilst in Ho Chi Min
We have done a few cooking classes with viator in other cities but this was the best to date. Kendy was our smiling welcoming chef who met us at the hotel and took us to the market. he explained the many different leafs, fruits herbs etc and then we went to a well set out and prepared classroom. Here kendy explained some history and went through step by step how to make a salad and sping rolls and then caramel pork. his attention to detail and obvious enjoyment in passing on his knowledge was excellent.
an enjoyable and learning activity it is great value
