My wife and I participated in the half-day course. It was simplified for novices with all the preparation being already done leaving mostly just the assembly for the students. The exception to this being the cabbage roll soup and the crispy pancake dishes. Overall you get to participate in creating 4 dishes: prawn cabbage roll soup; crispy pancake roll; grilled lemongrass chicken skewer and a green mango salad.
The instructor was very entertaining and the skill required is minimal. You are making the dishes for your own consumption so the more care you take, the more rewarding the experience will be. There's very little messy chopping and preparation which is good for some and disappointing for others. One young fellow opposite us had botched nearly all his dishes and was stuck with having to eat the remaining disasters.
overall the course was great and left me with the desire to try another one, so by all means, I would recommend this one as your launch point into authentic vietnamese cooking.
