Our group of 6 booked in to the cookery school 3 days prior to the course. We joined 6 other people from around the world, some had very limited cooking experience, my husband can boil an egg! Lots of different experience, Van took us to the market to buy the produce, explained everything we needed to buy, and what to... More

My wife, her girlfriend & my daughter (21y.o) did this cooking school & absolutely loved it. Us boys went cycling for the day. Wifey called me up on the mobile around 12:30PM to drop in & help them eat all the lovely food they were cooking as they were struggling. We turned up to the cheers of the 12 multinational... More

Van is professional, efficient, enthusiastic and charming. This course runs like absolute clock-work, she has over 50 recipes in her head and takes 12 people to market without a shopping list and didn't forget anyone's name or what they were cooking. Added to which she easily reels off who is to go first (ie their dish takes the longest preparation)... More

You would think that 10 people, each cooking a separate dish is a logistical nightmare but somehow Van orchestrates the whole performance with great ability. We started the day shopping the markets for fresh ingredients and then stopped for a coffee before the start of the day. Van and her team guided us through the delights of preparing traditional Vietnamese... More

Van takes the course and she is such a special lady. She really makes the day. All smiles and heartfelt geniality. Don't eat breakfast! There will be so much incredible eating to do!! Market tour is great. You will actually learn something/loads. Feels authentic and not put on. Format is great, never done a cooking class like this one, and... More

I am Vietnamese-American and I was excited to take this class, mostly to have my husband learn a few dishes. I cook Vietnamese food at home but I picked up quite a few new tips and tricks in the market and the kitchen from Van who was a charming teacher. I enjoyed the way she told us about the interesting... More

We spent the day with Van, starting at the markets buying ingredients for our day of cooking. Van has a great knowledge of local product and has great connections. We were in a group of 11 and all were very welcomed and Van treated us as if we were her only students. We all chose dishes to cook and enjoyed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Van, visiting the market, learning about food selections, and then prepping and cooking at her house. We each selected our favourite dish in advance, and were then tasked with its preparation and cooking. It was yours to make from start to finish so you really learned to make that dish solo. Van is an... More

We had a wonderful time -- a highlight of our whole three weeks in Southeast Asia. Van has almost all 5-star reviews for a reason! Van is a great teacher and very friendly. The class is structured so that everyone picks their own dish and eats all of them after a market tour. This means that you will have a... More

We read about this cooking class and got a recommendation about Van which turned out to be the highlight of our visit at Hoi An. We were picked up at 8:30 in the morning and taken to Hoi An's market to buy fresh ingredients in order to make our chosen dish. Van gave us a full explanation about every ingredient... More
