My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our cooking class at Blue Butterfly! Our guide, Phuong, was so lovely and spoke very good English. She first took us to the market to buy ingredients and told us how to order different things. She also bought us some delicious sticky rice and mung bean cake to try! We then went back to... More

My friend and I signed up for the cooking class not really knowing what to expect. From the moment we started we felt so welcomed and comfortable as they picked us up directly from or hotel. The market experience was amazing, food was great, and the chef and assistant did a phenomenal job teaching us! Highly recommended! Thanks again, Patrick

The class started by purchasing ingredients in the local markets. We then went to the restaurant and prepared the meal and then cooked and ate the meal. Phoung was our guide and she was fun and very helpful. She looked after our group, made sure that we had understood what as happening, helping to translate and giving us information on... More

We booked with Blue Butterfly but were taken to sister restaurant Countryside, also in old town. Chef Ha took us firstly to the market for a look around, I love these places, we bought some fresh vegetables for cooking but not the meats (maybe that was a good idea!) The trip also took time to show us other markets but... More

My wife and I were picked up from our hotel lobby by the friendly blue butterfly representative. Our first stop was to the Don Xuah markets to buy some ingredients for the cooking class. She took us up alley and down lane spending extra time showing us the different stalls. We even got to try some local hanoi draught beer... More

This cooking class was the best. It started with a guided tour of the local market where we purchased many of the things we would need. We also got to sample some of the local snacks that are offered at the market. Get the fried banana! It's so delicious, we even went back to the market a couple times after... More

We went to the market with Phuong to take our ingredients, she explained us a lot of things about locals specialities before starting our cooking lesson with Tien. He is very funny, we learnt some Vietnamese words, we made our first spring rolls and chicken lemongrass dishes and we ate it after. If you want to take good time and... More

The tour around the market was very interesting. Phuong showed us all the different herbs and different local ingredients Vietnam was able to offer. And then the class was really fun. The Hanoi spring rolls were amazing and the Pho was great too. Fun experience!

We did the market tour with Phuong and then the cooking class with her and Chef Thien. Phuong is a sweetheart and the market tour with her was super fun. She explained a lot about the ingredients we were getting, about the options generally available at the market, and helped with Vietnamese words too. Then we did the cooking class... More
