This class was lots of fun, I learned a lot and the food was delicious! I don't really have much to add other than what people have already said - picking vegtables on the farm was interesting as was learning to cook the dishes. I definitely recommend it!

My favorite tour in HCMC. Organic farm to table Vietnamese cooking class was awesome. Food we prepared are simple enough to replicate back home to impress friends and family. Though seemingly basic, the taste was top notch excellent. After good food, we proceeded to tour the famous cu chi tunnels. Long day but well organized. Time well spent.

Amazing experience, since the beginning - you get to see the farm where products grow, learn about the land, the farm itself, the use of each food and spice, all that with the chef from the place called Tan (which apparently participated on a MasterChef edition in Asia!!). It's a deep dive in Vietnamese culture thru their food and ingredients.... More

I'm a foodie from Melbourne Australia. So my idea of a great holiday is learning a little about a culture through understanding a little about the food. No quick cooking course for me - I booked four full days with the HCM Cooking school to cover ~36 dishes! With HCMC traffic it is just over an hour away from the... More

The staff was very knowledgeable about cultivating food and sharing Vietnamese traditions. A little agriculture, nutrition, and story telling mixed in. I took this class on a solo trip and had a wonderful time. Learn simple sauces, vienemese BBQ, and dessert. Comes with recipes to take home. The kids that were with us also seemed to enjoy it, I recommend... More

We did the cooking class and visit to the Cu Chi tunnels combined tour, Really enjoyed the experience. The heat in the kitchen, even though outdoors, is pretty oppressive in the midday sun, not that they can do anything about that! Dress light and bring plenty of fluids I guess! Only negative I would say is that if you book... More
