Had an awesome morning with the great chef Hon - first walking around the local market and buying the ingredients (the chef told us a lot about using different herbs and veggies and spices), then chilling on a boat, and after that exploring the secret world of traditional Vietnamese food under the keen eye of chef Hon. Cooking was so... More

Lovely experience walking through the market having all the local foods and herbs explained. Short boat trip to the island. Jan was a fabulous teacher and taught us to cook delicious local specialties. Everything was well organised the food was delicious and very plentiful. Bottomless glass of passion fruit juice. My 12 year old really enjoyed this experience and learnt... More

Our guide Hien was just lovely, she was enthusiastic, sweet and a fantastic cook. We made four dishes and some of the food that we made was the best food we ate on our entire two week trip, and we ate some pretty awesome food everywhere we went! It was also a really fun day, definitely would recommend it.

We just had a wonderful market tour and class with our guide, Jan. She spoke excellent English and took us through Hoi An's central market to buy ingredients for our meals. We made four courses after boating to the island for the class. The class was well-paced, food quality was high, and the amount of food was perfect - full... More

We had a great day with our energetic guide Mo, and our fun chef Thy, who led us through cooking 4 dishes in a lovely setting. The day started in the market where we bought all the ingredients - this was fun because other food tours may take you to the market to look, but you don't often actually buy... More

We went into this cooking class with high expectations due to the amazing reviews and they were exceeded. From the beginning to end we had such a good time - the food was amazing and so were our cooks! Thank you for a great experience - can't wait to try our recipes when we get home.

This cooking tour was all around a fabulous experience! Our guide, Mo, was very patient with us as she showed us all around the fresh, open-air, market. The boat rides were a great way to see more of Hoi An and the rain cooperated long enough for us to get to the cooking school and stay dry. Our cooking instructor,... More

We had a blast at this cooking class. We (fiance and I) booked it through our homestay at short notice, we wanted to learn about the flavours and ingredients in Vietnamese cooking. Hien and Ms. T were our teachers and they were both so accommodating and fun. The highlight for me was learning how to make Bahn Xeo. The visit... More
