This cooking class was really the highlight of our visit to Hanoi. We enjoyed the market tour with Duyen then returned to the restaurant and were greeted by our chef. We learned to make green papaya salad, Hanoi spring rolls and chicken with lemongrass and chilli. The food was great. Sometimes a language barrier between ourselves and the chef but he showed us how to do everything and then we could copy. We will have to practice our carrot flowers and tomato swans at home!!

I arrived in Hanoi at 8am and needed something to do before my hostel was ready. I booked into this course and I was a bit concerned when I was the only one on the course, and our first thing was a walk around the market. I had done the market tours on other cooking courses and they bored me to tears. I need not have been concerned, the market was fantastic with my guide buying any fruits that I didn't recognise for me to try, and chatting and swapping story's of our cities. The cooking course was great and there was a ridiculous amount of food, all in all a great couple of hours.

So happy to spend the morning with my new friend and wonderful guide, Miss Nhu. She has a beautiful soul and a love for food! The market visit ahead of time was informative and light-hearted. So easy to talk to and work alongside the entire Blue Butterfly cooking class staff, and I will continue to work on my tomato rose cutting skills so I can continue to make them proud! Thank you all for a spectacular introduction to Hanoi.

I had Duyen as my guide for the day and she was perfect. Took me all around the market and had lots of information on everything. It was a great guided little tour before our cooking workshop. Which was both delicious and lots of fun. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice vietnamese experience and then getting to eat some delicious food.
