Much more than expected; not only do you learn to cook and then do the cooking the food is amazing. Just prepare yourself for a lot of good food and do a little pacing because you will be eating 12 dishes if the class is full. I never learned so much about choosing food, food prep, and seasonings in a... More

This course is really fun, everyone gets to pick a dish to cook out of a huge list and then goes for it! You get picked up by a minibus and go straight to the market, here you go shopping for everything you need. This market tour is amazing, you can ask everything and even try stuff you didn't know...

This was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam. I cannot speak highly enough of Van, I took a turn for the worst and she was really understanding, gave me stuff to help me feel better and let me join the class as and when I felt up to it. The list of dishes to... More

We booked the cooking class with Van two days in advance and secured two spots with 10 other people. Van picked us up and we went to the market to shop for ingredients after everyone picked a fish from the menu. After shopping, we went to her house and began cooking. The class was very well organized and we all... More

My husband and I just finished a class with green bamboo and it was absolutely fantastic. There were 12 people in the course (I believe that is the max she accepts) so we got to try 12 different dishes throughout the day. (Each person selects one from a long list of options!). Very hands on (it's not as if the... More

I don't know how she does it, but Van orchestrated an incredible day of 11 dishes, one cooked by each of us in the class, and everything was cooked to perfection. From start to finish, she guided on technique and flavors. It was definitely a full day from a market tour to purchase ingredients to prep and cooking in the... More

After traveling for two weeks in Vietnam, my cooking class at Green Bamboo was easily one of the highlights of our trip. I love to cook at home, and a friend who equally loves food and cooking highly recommended this class. She traveled for several months in Asia and told me this was one of the highlights of her entire... More

The other reviews are spot on - Van is a delightful human being and went out of her way to accommodate my gluten allergy, two vegetarians, and a severe fish allergy. She was all, "we can do it, no big deal!" and she adamantly checked the labels and bought a soy sauce I could eat so I could be included... More

We loved our morning with the guys from Green Bamboo. Trip around the market then into the classroom to be shown and to cook four dishes. Bo, the chef, was fantastic and really made the day special. I can't recommend this highly enough. Thanks to the whole team.

A group of 12 of us, various ages and nationalities. As other posts have explained. Van takes the group to the market and buys the ingredients. She then shows how to prepare each dish and you cook your own dish for the group who try all of the dishes. Really fantastic. Van is a great cook and teacher and it... More
