I am so glad I chose to take part in Van's cooking class. I enjoy cooking at home, and wanted an authentic Vietnamese cooking lesson. There were so many cooking tours to choose from, and many offer different experiences. Van picked us up at our hotel, and we headed to the market and went shopping for our ingredients. She took...

Just another reason to love Hoi An. My daughter and I did Van's cooking class and had the most wonderful day. We were picked up at 8.30 and taken to the markets in Hoi An. Firstly, we got to choose what we were going to cook from an extensive list, then set off with baskets to buy our ingredients. What... More

We had a fantastic time doing this cooking course. We attended as a family with my 9 year old who adored it and still goes on about it and my 5 year old who didn't do much, but was well looked after on the night tasting the dishes. We learnt heaps, the staff on hand anticipated your every need and... More

My girlfriend and I traveled in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos for three weeks. When people ask us about our trip highlights, this cooking class is in the Top 3. The class is usually 8-12 people and for each person you try a different dish. All of the food we cooked was delicious and the gift bag at the end of... More

What can we say, this day's cookery class is flawless. Van is lovely and has impeccable English, plus a great teaching style. The visit to the market was enthusiastic but set the right pace. There were 11 of us but only 1 veggie but not problem, some of the dishes could be adapted to be veggie (like the fresh spring... More

Van is incredible, I was on my own and even though the cooking class was already full booked she squeezed me in which was fantastic. We made 11 dishes and all were absolutely amazing! Even as a 24 yo male on my own with many eldery people I would do it over and over again!

This was the best day we had in Hoi An, possibly because we both really enjoy food and cooking but Van is such an interesting host that I think anyone would find this fun. The tour of the market is slightly marred by being unable to hear everything Van is saying (it's a very busy place) but just taking in... More

Can't recommend this enough - well worth doing if you find yourself in Hoi An for a day or two. The day begins with a trip to the local market where Van (the owner & teacher) takes you round and explains various things to you whilst buying all the ingredients for the day. Back at the cooking school you all... More

I cannot speak highly enough of Van and her cooking school. The day started with a visit to the markets to buy the fresh ingredients, a quick stop for a Vietnamese coffee to get to know the group, then back to Van's house to cook. We had a group of 10 and cooked 10 different dishes, sampling each dish before... More

Van was a great guide through the market and a phenomenal cooking instructor. She was very patient and kind and spoke perfect english. Everyone in our group had a fabulous experience. It was a great way to sample many different traditional Vietnamese dishes as you get to try everyone else's cooking. All of the dishes that we tried were delicious.... More
