My girlfriend Nadia and I have been travelling around SE Asia for the past 2 months and this was BY FAR the best day of our entire trip so far.

From the second we met our guides, Rosie & Bamboo, we could tell this was going to be a day to remember.

For our first stop, they took us to an organic farm where we got to meet a local grandmother who has been farming for 40 years. With Rosie & Bamboo's help, we learned all about the vegetables she grows and got to try out a bunch of different techniques she uses for tilling/raking the soil, growing spring onions and watering her plants. Rosie is a killer photographer with her brand new iPhone (make sure you ask her about it) and we had a blast doing a photoshoot of us working the land in our traditional bamboo hats. The farmer was so cute and gave us big hugs at the end before we left.

Next stop was the market where our lovely ladies taught us all about the different ingredients for sale, and helped us practice our Vietnamese as we collected our items for the dishes we would be making later. We got the lowdown on how you should bargain with vendors and even got to sample a few things.

3rd on the list was our coffee break at a super local shop with zero tourists. We sampled some amazing local coffee drinks (iced black coffee with condensed milk, coconut coffee, green tea & ginger tea) and learned about Vietnamese cafe culture. This was where we really got to know our hosts. Turns out we were all very close in age and by the end of our drinks, we were laughing so hard that our stomachs hurt.

After that much-needed break from the hot sun, we headed back to the villa for the main event - the cooking class. This was where we met Rosie & Bamboo's cousin Blue (who we later found out used to be a street food vendor). While Blue prepped some of the ingredients, Rosie & Bamboo really took their time to teach us some background on Vietnamese cuisine, explaining in detail the importance of balancing flavours, the regional differences in food across the country and what some of their favourite dishes were.

Once that was done, we really got into the cooking and unlike other classes I've been to, they actually let us cook! Asides from showing us the techniques, they let us be very hands on and we ended up learning a ton. The best part about the class was that it was super informal, and by the end, we were having so much fun that it turned into a crazy karaoke dance party.

For anyone thinking about doing this class, it's a no-brainer. Even if you're not planning on spending time in Hoi An, JUST GO. It's worth it for this class alone. This was truly a day I will never forget and I'm walking away with memories, incredible photos (thank you Rosie!), and 2 new best friends.

Such a beautiful morning. We loved going to the market and learning all about different types of food and then we were taken to have the BEST coffee of our whole Vietnam trip. It was amazing that we had the chance to cook (and eat!) 4 separate dishes and we were so full by the end of it we didn’t even need dinner. The best thing of all is that they made the food feel approachable and we can picture ourselves making all four dishes again at home. We also were vegetarian and English speaking and with a family who ate meat and spoke French and it was incredible how the family took that in their stride and cooked two different versions of dishes with us while speaking 3 languages and still created such a communal group atmosphere. Thank you to the whole family for such a wonderful day.

We've had the best of time during this day of gardening, local market bargaining, coffee and cooking... And after this eating ofcourse. The friendly and enthusiastic people make you feel right at home in their kitchen. We think of ourselfs as lifetime family members of the Jolie Villa now ✨

It was such a great time!!
I attended with my family (+2 years old son), they had kept caring my son from start to the end of the class.
They gave us the most memorable moment in Vietnam and had a great food.
If there is anybody who are considering to take this activity, challenge it without any hesitation!!
Thanks Rosie, Bamboo, Blue and Mr. driver!!

We had the best morning at the cooking class in Hoi An with Jolie, Rosie and Blue. We were a group of 7 friends and had tons of fun. We loved the market and coffee stop before getting to Jolie’s lovely house to start the cooking. We made 4 dishes and they were the most delicious dishes we had all trip. We loved the rice paper rolls, pancakes, clss and y pot and of course the pho! We can’t wait to try the dishes back home. Rosie, Jolie and Blue are the best people and great teachers - you should definitely do this class

The cooking class with Bambu, Rosie and their aunt was wonderfull! So lovely to be cooking in their home and learning family recipies. I picked this course because you get to cook for about 3 hour meaning you get to make at least 4 dishes. Market visit was also so much fun !

We spent the best 4 hours with Rosie! Did the private class as a couple and both loved her engaging manner and infectious positivity.

On top of eating incredibly delicious Pho, banh Xeoh pancakes, spring rolls and fish, we got to experience where our food is sourced from the organic farm and fresh market. We skipped dinner after as it was such a scrumptious feast and ate till we could barely move!

Will try to perfect pancake flipping skills when we get home to try and replicate some of these recipes ;) Thank you Rosie and Blue for an amazing and authentic experience!

This experience is a must do! Rosie was a wonderful hostess. She goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is comfortable and having a great time from shopping in the local market to chopping, stirring and flipping our banh xeo!
Lantern making was a bonus!

Having participated in a group cooking class with Jolie I discussed with her the benefits of 1-1 time. I wasn’t disappointed. Along with her mother in law she took me through her kitchen explaining the different utensils and ingredients. One spice mix is made by mum in law and the mix is known only to her. We used it in the pumpkin soup. Delicious.The ceramic kettle I had never seen before, used to boil medicinal herbs. Jolie’s grandmother taught her the combinations for different ailments. Fascinating. A great afternoon and, for me, the best way to end my 7.5 months in south east Asia.
