We didn't know what to expect, but a quick tour of the market (we had, fortunately, more time to wander the day before) with the chef, followed by the boat ride on the river to the school, did not disappoint. We had so much fun, and Mimi, the chef, was both informative and entertaining. Not to be missed. MANY restaurants... More

The cooking school was fantastic loved the walk around the market with a very knowledgeable guide then taken through the herb garden before cooking and eating everything in sight. Loved it.

Hoi An is always my break during my business trips to Vietnam for my non-profit and this time during a free morning, I decided to take a cooking class by myself. It was so much fun and I learned far more than how to cook a few Vietnamese dishes. We met at around 8:30 in the morning at their local... More

This was my second time doing the Red Bridge cooking school and it was, as before, outstanding! We took the more expensive full-day Deluxe tour, and were very fortunate that it was just the two of us! Even in a bigger group it would be great. We started off by visiting a local organic allotment, learning about what they grow... More

I went with a group and we had such a great time. We started at the Hoi An markets, arriving around 8:30am. Our guide showed us all the various vegetables, meat and fish used in Vietnamese cooking. Then it was off on a 30 minute boat ride up the river into a very rural area. It was incredibly pleasant sitting... More

We went here for a cooking school 2 years ago. Returned last night for dinner. The meal was amazing, clean, fresh and well presented. Very romantic location, shame it's out of town but worth the trip if you've got time. Put on mosquito repellant as its covered open air next to the river.

There are other more technical cooking classes where it's a bit more like being at school. What marks this out is that it's a genuinely entertaining experience. A bit like one of those tv cooking shows where the menu is led by a real character. We managed to make a really tasty meal, and the recipes you're given are excellent,... More

Good fun, but I think the farm walk and market were the best bits. We cooked way too much food to eat, not that that's a problem! Lovely staff, but they actually do a lot of the cooking work for you.
