Because of Covid-19 I had a private cooking class. My instructor was really great! We first went to the local market to see what is normal in an everyday Vietnamese food market. There were some fruits and vegetables I had never seen before. Once we were back in the kitchen I made 4 dishes. His instructions were very helpful and it was fun. For one person this was a lot of food to eat but it was delicious. I got a cookbook to take home and I hope to make some of the recipes soon!

This food tour was fantastic! My wife and I only had 2 nights in Hanoi, and we wanted to eat and learn as much as possible. Our guide Son is a very knowledgeable local chef. We started with pho and learned about the original recipe and secret ingredients, and also about how family recipes get passed down and used in Hanoi. We also ate bun cha, crab spring rolls, banh mi, and more. Son also took us to the originator of egg coffee, and it was the best we tasted in all of Vietnam. Highly recommended!

We were going to take a cooking class here in a few days and ended up at the bookstore that is in the same courtyard. I headed up to the cafe to wait for my family to be done in the bookstore. I ordered a bhan mi meatball meal and I could not believe how good it was. The sauce is exquisite and the bread is crispy in the outside and moist and chewy on the inside. It was incredible. I made all my kids order the same and the plates were all finished with a big round of smiles.

Set in a charming building, the class begins with the chef taking you for a stroll through a nearby wet market. Then it's back to begin the cooking class. The chef provided very good instruction and lots of cheffy tips! We cooked banana flower salad, ginger chicken, spring rolls, and sweet corn dessert soup. Throughout the class you are offered a great selection of unlimited drinks, which was a welcome addition! After cooking, we then headed upstairs into the atmospheric restaurant to enjoy the fruits of our labour with our fellow students - a lovely experience. At the end you receive the recipes and an apron to take home. Some did find the "classroom" a little warm at times, and you need to be prepared to be standing for a good two hours while you're learning and cooking. To make it an even better experience, my suggestions would be to have some stools behind the cooking benches, and also to perhaps install some mirrors above the chef's counter so that the class can observe the cooking steps and follow along with the chef, rather than coming to the front to observe, then going back to your bench, having to remember the steps. Overall though, it was a fun experience that created lots of happy memories.
