One-day Cooking Class in Hanoi

US$ 110
per pax

Hanoi, beside being the country’s capital and the home to important historic monuments, is also the capital of gastronomy art which is famed for its refinement.

Start your morning the way many Hanoi women do by paying a visit to a neighbor market, making selection for the menu of the day and engaging in cooking – in this case under the instruction of a chef from a charming local restaurant. Upon return, you will be able to impress your friends with your knowledge of picking ingredients and mixing them together to create the divine taste that is signature of Vietnam dishes.

Detailed program
In the morning, make a visit with the chef to Hang Be Market (situated on the street of the same name) to pick fresh ingredients. Learn about the variety of herbs and spices that constitute the rich flavor of Vietnamese food.

Cooking will be done back in the restaurant. You will practice making two of the most well-known Vietnamese dishes which are spring rolls and grilled fish with banana leaves. The session will end at noon and you can have lunch with your finished products.

In the afternoon, visit Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, home to a collection of 25000 ancient and contemporary exhibits, and learn about Vietnam’s long course of history. Next, enjoy a show of water puppet – a UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Vietnam.

In the evening, stroll through the streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter and sample the city’s iconic dishes including fried spring rolls and pho.
