This was my second cooking class and it was just as good as 2 years ago. All the food was different to lady time. There is a different menu for each day so you have a choice about what you will cook. The class runs so smoothly with all your ingredients in bowls reDy for you to prep. Once you... More

This cooking class includes a visit to Ben thanh market to purchase fruit and vegetables, and then a taxi ride to their restaurant. Our class included 4 courses... 3 of which we cooked ourselves: Saigon spring rolls with fish dipping sauce, green mango salad with char-grilled chicken and lotus fried rice wrapped in lotus leaf. The final course was our... More

Our family of 3 booked a class before we arrived in HCMC. I paid a deposit via PayPal & the remainder on the day after the class (we paid $40 per person). We actually arrived in HCMC a day late, but I emailed & they accommodated the change quickly. We met Chef Khang at the Ben Thanh market at 10am.... More

We chose to wake up early in the morning to meet with the chef at the Ben Thanh market to buy some of the ingredients for our cooking class. It's an interesting scene to see so many "actions" going on in the wet market.. some vendors were friendly enough for us to taking pictures of their stalls, some chased us... More

I was a bit jet lagged as I had landed in the wee hours before the class but I forgot all weariness as soon as I walked into the Ben thanh market and met with Chef Khang, who took our small group of 5 through the market, showing us all the different kinds of fruits and vegetables exclusive to Vietnam...

First we went to the market. Our chef told us so many things about the food and culture. He spoke very good English and made us laugh a lot. After the market we cooked 3 dishes. The chef explained everything very clear and the food we made was great. The class was quite expensive but worth it. Highly recommended!

The class takes three hours from 2 to 5. If you go in the morning you can also visit the market with the experienced chef. The menu changes everyday. It is time and money well spent. You really learn about Viernamese culture and its amazing food. Too bad I lost my recipe book and they were unable to help.

My bf and I were looking to do something different on our Sunday afternoon. We decided to give this a shot even though my bf does not cook. He had a great time, the Chef was really helpful and funny. He gave interesting information about vietnamese food, techniques, and spices. 3 Hours flew by when your having fun!

Did a cooking course here with my mum in February. Neither of us are particularly passionate about cooking but we loved the food at Hoa Tuc and had a free afternoon so thought we'd give it a try. The whole experience was fantastic. There were just four of us on the day so we felt like we got a lot... More
