Excellent cooking class, very organized. We were picked up at our hotel by a driver and a chef/guide/student of the school. The facility is quite spacious. Getting the veggies for our cooking was interesting and educational, although it was difficult to remember what herbs are good for what ailments, etc. Chef Tan was very personable, quickly learning people's names and...

Loved the cooking loved the recipes, the prep and the dishes themselves. I wasn't so enthralled by the walk through the 'farm' regardless this did not detract from a great experience. Fun and informative and it wandered a lot of those questions you are kinda afraid to ask. Would go again in an instant.

This cooking class cares for its students really well. We were greeted by a kind and sociable guide picking us up at our airbnb who then guided us all the way to the cooking class location (to and back). When we arrived we went to pick out our ingredients by a funny and friendly worker who told us about each... More

Our group of 6 visited as part of a tour to the Cu Chi tunnels. This was great fun, from gathering the herbs and mushrooms to preparing 4 dishes that we ate as lunch. The chef was great both as an entertainer and as an educator, and with his help, we produced some pretty good food. He and the staff... More

Chef Tan and his staff were very warm and friendly, kids had a blast! Kids wished they could spend more time at the farm and had asked to visit... More

The tour and explanation of the farm was fascinating. The food preparation was fun and satisfying. The only "problem" was that there was much too much delicious food to eat and we were too full to finish eating everything. Definitely worth the time, effort and cost to add this into your itinerary.
