Cooking classes

I am a caterer and am very interested in doing some cooking lessons while in Viet Nam. I will only be around HCMC and up to Hoi An.

in Hoi An we did the Redbridge cooking school, but this in not a serious cooking lesson.

I'm not sure about HCMC , but you could possible send an e-mail to

www.hiddenhanoi.com.vn/ even though they are in Hanoi,

they may be able to tell you of a more serious cooking school in hcmc and they reply promptly to e-mails.

hi allie

meet at 8am at their great cafe in the town- out in their back courtyard where you start off with a free drink- coffee- water juice or whatever.

then, they take you for a walk through the market, which for some reason, was more fun than walking through on your own. They point out different stuff to you. One stallholder showed us some local cooking tools which lots of us bought. I've since tried to use mine at home but with no success hahahaha- luckily they cost a pittance so it's all in the name of fun.

then you walk down to the boat and a lovely boat ride up the river to their lovely restaurant and grounds and a bit of a walk around before you go in to start the class.

On the menu: Rice Paper Rolls (of course) and we got to make the rice paper wrappers- of course, the mixture is already made, we just got to steam them from the raw rice/water mixture.

eggplant hotpot, and a few other things.

Afterwards, you go into the restaurant and have lunch together.

The lunch was very nice but definitely wasn't only what we prepared for ourselves as it was quite a big lunch.

Cost is US$15 not including drinks. Their honey/tea is delicious.

it's a really nice relaxing and fun way to spend a few hours.

btw- we loved the Hai Scout Cafe and ate there very often over the six days we spent in Hoi An- their food is delicious.
