We had a very nice experience at the Hanoi Cooking Center. There was a short market tour, which really is to see the market instead of shop, then a few dishes back in the classroom which have all been mostly prepped for you. The teacher was wonderful and we did learn some new tips. The lunch is delicious and beer... More

My fiance and I had a fantastic time! We thoroughly enjoyed going to the local food market and our guide was very informative. The menu we cooked was fantastic and the food was delicious. Thank you Hanoi Cooking Centre for making it such an enjoyable experience! :)

I went for the vegetarian cooking course and had a stellar time. The food I prepared was very creative, unlike any food I had prepared before and absolutely delicious. I was the only participant signed up (not uncommon for vegetarian courses) and had a very comfortable and educational time with Y and the rest of the crew. The market tour... More

There's a lot of eating on this tour, make sure you come hungry! We toured the old quarter and wandered through the various markets (i.e. meat, vegetables, rice). Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and bring a camera and an open mind.

Visit to the markets before cooking was eye opening and informative! Duyen helped answer all our questions and was very helpful and professional. Couldn't fault the facilities, overall great value for money!

I chose this school because of the good reviews and my short messages with a past attendee, Susan. Of the three options (menus) I saw posted, I chose the the BBQ one. I think i'd like the salad one even better. I arrived by taxi at the arranged time, 2:30 (and I was finished eating by 5:30), It turned out... More

Had a great time with 27 year old Ho. He took us through several great authentic recipes with style and a sense of humour, I would hugely recommend.

A cooking class and the HCC was certainly a highlight of our trip! The only cooking class that aligned with our schedule was the street food class, and being a vegetarian I thought this might prove a little difficult. Y was such an amazing host and chef, he went so far out of his way to accommodate my dietary request... More

From the visit to the local market (fried silk worms anyone?) to the demonstration and then cooking some fantastic local food then enjoying it for lunch with the rest of the group this is a "must do" for anyone visiting Hanoi. Well done Tracey and team.

Adorable cafe w/young chefs that teach you how to cook veitnese food. An Austrailian Chef named Tracey Lister owns & operates the cafe & cooking school. Once I arrived we are treated to tea & explanation of the seeds it's made of. Then we went to open market. Wonderful experience that heighten your senses. After we finish cooking your seated...
