We really enjoyed the "Home Cooking" portion of our tour. It was our 14 year old daughters favorite part of our trip to Hanoi. Our guide and cooking instructor, Ms. Trang, was excellent. Our tour included a trip to the local market to select fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats to use in the meal. Our tour started with learning a few phrases of Vietnamese to help communicate with the sellers at the market (of course Ms. Trang was there to help). The local market experience was very fun and a great way to experience the local culture. The foods at the market were so fresh and there was so much to choose from. We then headed to the home to begin our cooking class. The home was beautiful and scenic (overlooking the river). We all had so much fun learning how to make spring rolls! The finished meal was delicious and included appetizers, main courses, desert, and drinks. We really enjoyed the dinner and the overall experience. I highly recommend the Home Cooking Hanoi experience. We loved it!
