I love cooking and eating. Three hours spent learning about making Vietnamese cooking and Vietnamese ingredients, developing skills, eating good food I'd made myself, and talking (if you want to) with other travellers from all over. I actually went to three classes all with different menus - I went to the cooking only one from 10.00am - 1.00pm. It is a lovely gentle thing to do while visiting another culture. There are cooking utensils for sale but never a hard sell. The place is easy to find and I must admit to stopping at the Intercontinental Asiana (there are two Intercontinentals this is the Asiana one) on the same street for a pre-class coffee in their lobby cafe (it is less than a 5 minute walk away). For two of the classes I went with my husband and for one I was on my own. This would be great to do if travelling solo. The manner of instruction would be interesting to use at a dinner party for getting each guest to prepare their own entree or salad (cooking the whole meal this way probably wouldn't be easy to do at a dinner party) in fact I intend to do that for the entree and salad in a couple of weeks. What was one of the things I learnt - get that fish sauce out of the fridge, make sure it is made from anchovies and has a rating of 60 or more.
