“Great way to learn something and be entertained”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

The three of us (Husband, Wife, 30is Son) had a great time with Miss Hanh, our host and teacher. Food was great and Miss Hanh did a great job of entertaining us. One of best values in Hoi An.

“Fun cookery - wrong address above though”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

Found at 94B Bach Dang Street, not 98, this is a lovely little cookery school. Good for those who want a quick course and not devote the whole day to it. They are flexible with what you want to do and the teachers make the sessions fast-paced but fun ("Hello beansprout! Hello fish sauce!). You get a recipe book to take away with you and we've already tried some of the meals out back at home. Some may not enjoy singing as they cook but somehow you get drawn into it by the end!

My husband and I had a cooking class with Miss Hanh this morning. We were promptly picked up at our hotel, visited local markets as she purchased goods and explained how to choose items (beware, she will test you on this later).

Miss Hanh is a character, so happy, so organised and it was the best morning. We prepared and cooked 5 dished - spring rolls, sweet and sour chicken and corn soup, eggplant in claypot, fish in banana leaves (chicken for me), papaya salad.

All of the food was glorious and I'd recommend it to anyone.

“Good cooking skills, good fun, short time, no drinks”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

If you look for a professional course, do not go there. If you want to learn basic tecniques of the vietnamise cuisine, you are in the right place.
We did a 4 course menu at 16$ per person. We had fun.
However, I have a BUT. When we came in to start the course, one of the staff brought us the menu and asked us if we wanted something to drink, but when I saw the prices I said NO WAY. All drinks were overpriced. If you can take a bottle of water with you, do it. Anyway, the cooking class was good, learning new things.
And do not expect a 2 hour course as announced. Our 4 course menu lasted 1 hour.
But good taste and fun.
