We had a great day with Van at her Vietnamese cooking school. Learnt so much and ate so much! Very authentic experience starting at the market and ending many hours later. Terrific. Highly recommended.

If you want to learn more than 1 dish look elsewhere. Even the class is for 10 participants and there is a chance to learn more you will learn 1 dish only! PROs: buying the ingredients at the local market, nice kitchen, good English CONs: Mrs. Van just whispers and didn't change it even after a few request for speaking... More

I had an excellent day with Van, her 11 cooking students and 3 aids ( who did all the washing up in a flash). Van greeted us with exuberance, and took us on a great Market tour. I'd already done a cooking class in Vietnam, but Van's was in a unique league. I don't know how she made it so... More

We booked this course based on the reviews on TA and were not disappointed. My boyfriend was not overly keen to do a cooking class, especially for $35 USD charged, but was happy to eat his words by the end of the day. We both had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves. The experience of going to the market... More

For the first few days in Hoi An, I was under the impression that Hoi An translated into English as cooking school. There was not a business remotely connected with food that didn't also offer cooking classes. Whole day, Half day, Half hour, go to market, stay home, buy the video;etc.,etc. Luckily research brought us to Van's "Green Bamboo Cooking... More

From the time we were picked up from our hotel Van, our hostess and teacher looked after us really well. We loved getting to know our fellow cooks and shopping at the local market for all our ingredients was fascinating. Van was really generous with her time and juggled all our questions so well. Her home with its lovely big... More

We have done a few cooking classes while on holiday and this has been one of the best. It was easy to book via email, we selected one item from the menu. On the day of our course we were picked up from our hotel. The group was 12 in total, which is the largest they run. First we visited... More

We've done a few cooking courses now on different holidays and this was my favourite by far. Van was lovely, knowledgable and made the whole day brilliant! I was really impressed by her and the business she's built up, she's great. We got picked up and we had to pick a dish each to cook which I loved. Next we... More

This was one of the best things we did in Vietnam. Van is absolutely lovely and her cooking skills are incredible. You visit the markets to buy all your ingredients fresh and then cook them up in her home. She teaches you so many useful tips and you can see she truly loves what she does. The food of course...
