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

The Saigon Cooking Class I attended last Wednesday was exactly what I hoped it would be. Chef Khang was an excellent teacher and chef, and also great fun to be with , with excellent English. Foreigners who live in the city return again to try all of the varied and tasty dishes he produces. The trip to the market first... More

Brilliant experience :) Chef Khang is a great teacher and we met fellow travellers and shared experiences. It's in a pretty courtyard filled with international bars and restaurants.

We both enjoyed the tour of the Ben Thanh markets for cooking supplies and don't believe we would have seen as much without knowing where to go such as the making of spring roll paper. The Cooking class itself was extremely well planned and meticulously organised with a high level of consideration for our hands-on learning experience. We learned a... More
