Booked the 'Hanoi and the Northern Highlands' class via email with no issues prior to arriving in Vietnam. The class consists of a walking tour through the nearby local markets led by Australian-owner Tracey who was incredibly knowledgable and provided plenty of street food tips. The class was well run with a friendly and approachable young chef, facilities were well-maintained... More

I was excited to see a vegetarian cooking class on offer at this school, as I've visited some great vegan and vegetarian restaurants here in Vietnam, and was eager to pick up a few cooking tips. Unfortunately I wasn't overly impressed with either the quality of the 'class' (which felt more like a demonstration, than an actual lesson on cooking),... More

We were greeted with a fresh lemon tea, then our chef, Linh, took us on a very interesting tour of the local Mung Nam Moi Markets. We returned to the kitchen and under Linh's guidance prepared our 4 course lunch. A really enjoyable morning.

This cooling class taking by Mr Hau was really in depth and a lot of fun. We were able to have a go at everything and some of the recipes I would definitely do at home in NZ. Mr Hau is a talented individual that does the Hanoi Cooking Centre proud.
