Four of us traveling together booked this cooking school prior to arriving in Hoi An. We were impressed by the great reviews and the advertised small class sizes. Van picked us up on time and explained that there would be 12 people in the class that day. The first stop was a trip to market, this is where it first... More

I was looking for something different to do on our second holiday in Hoi An. I checked out things to do on Trip Advisor, the Green Bamboo Cooking School popped up. I contacted Van by email, made a booking, we selected the dishes we wanted to cook, that easy – that simple. I sent an email to Van to confirm... More

This cooking class is simply awesome.We have 6 couples in the class,and we cooked up 12 fantastic Vietnamese cuisines under the watchful eyes of Van.We learned some of Van's secret recipes as well as many cooking techniques. It was one of the most enjoyable times we spent in Hoi An.

The course starts with shopping for the ingredients at Hoi an market and continues with cooking as many dishes as the participants. Everyone gets to cook a different dish and everyone tries. The staff and Van are so well organised that you don't realise how you get the tools and ingredients in front of you for each step :) The... More

From shopping for ingredients at the local market, learning about the history of Vietnamese cuisine, learning how to prepare and cook the most delicious dishes, sharing the day with Van and other food enthusiasts, this cooking class was simply the best! Relax, learn, enjoy and indulge in the cuisine of Vietnam. Highly recommend!

This is a day that I will fondly remember from my time in Vietnam. Van helped our whole group cook the most amazing restaurant quality food. Yes - I ate too much sampling everyone's dishes, but with great food and a cold beer life is good! The market trip was interesting and we enjoyed meeting our fellow Masterchefs over a... More

I loved my cooking class with Van! This was my fourth cooking class in SE Asia and so wonderful. After picking us up, Van provided all 9 of us with the traditional Vietnamese hats to visit the Hoi An Market. We all got to pick a dish to make, so we walked around as we bought the variety of ingredients.... More
