For me this was the highlight of our trip to Vietnam! We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 12, and we did the Green Bamboo Cooking School day on or second last day in Hoi An, and I must say that, under Van's excellent teaching and hands on help, we had one of our best meals in her house:-) There were just 6 of us as one couple who were to attend were unfortunately not well. We started with a fun and very interesting tour of the markets, and this is where the tasting began. We tried some fruit, vege and dishes that we may not have tried on our own. And we got to see the hard working market staff, who were all 100% into their work, and seemed to be having lots of fun too! I think we have a lot to learn from the Vietnamese work ethic!
Van actually added 2 more dishes for us to cook given that we only had 6 dishes, and the resultant Rice Paper tools and Banh Xeo pancakes were a treat!
We all got to learn each others dishes and to lend a hand to each other. If you like cooking and eating, and want great value for money I would really recommend this fabulous cooking course....I would do it all again!
PS Van's daughters photos of the local area and people are great too! As is her ice cream!!
