Marvellous self-cooking experience with lovely Van!! We enjoyed every single step (shopping, preparing, cooking or bbqing and serving). Best about Van's class, compared to other offers, is that you ll see 11 other dishes, how they are prepared and cooked. In the end you get to eat every single meal (+ the recipes)...Wow!!

Wow, what an amazing experience in Hoi An. We loved exploring the markets with Van and buying the ingredients for our dishes. We have done many cooking classes though our travels but this has been the best by far. Everyone in the group was able to participate and serve their own dish to the group. All 12 dishes were incredible... More

The most enjoyable thing we did in Vietnam. Do what ever it takes to get a spot in the class. Van speaks amazing English with a great sense of humour and hospitality. Not just about the cooking, it's a cultural, culinary and jovial affair. She's very accommodating for vegetarians. Thanks for an incredible time.

So I don't have anything to compare this to as it was our first cookery school experience in SE Asia but if this is the standard then WOW. We were picked up at 8, once all the class were present and correct we were taken to the local market where we were shown around and saw Van pick the produce... More

Great cooking school. Van is such a great host. A lot different to most cooking schools. This is an all day experience which is a great social and learning adventure also. You select a dish which you wish to cook, van helps selects your ingredients needed from the local market. The dishes you can choose aren't your normal boring generic... More

Had a fantastic day shopping at the markets followed by hours of cooking and eating. Van was a very patient and informative host. Made some very delicious food and learnt a lot about the recipes and produce. Would highly recommend.

We had a great day with Van today starting off at the markets to choose all the fresh ingredients we needed for our dishes. We stopped for Vietnamese coffee before heading to Van's house to prep for a whole day of cooking and eating! Van showed us how to debone chicken and how to prepare squid from the whole squid...

If you are researching cooking schools in Hoi An, this is the one. I doubt you will find any review that says Van is anything other than amazing and excellent. It isn't just the cooking tips (which are of course the reason you go) but her whole package. She is a lovely, warm and encouraging person who has a tremendous... More

Both myself and my boyfriend agree that today's class was the highlight of our trip to Vietnam. We left absolutely delighted with our day of exploring, prepping, cooking, eating and chatting. Cookbook to take home, lots of photos and a full belly ☺️ Van is a pro at what she does, 100% recommended!!

This cooking class is the highlight of our trip so far! Van is an amazing teacher and absolutely lovely person. The class felt less like a cooking class with a teacher instructing you what to do, and more like Van had invited us all over for lunch and we all helped cook the feast! The day started in the Markets... More
