I'll be travelling around Vietnam for 2 weeks, and would love to do a Vietnamese cooking class during my trip.

Has anyone had an experience they'd recommend?

I'll most likely be travelling to Hanoi, Danang, Hue, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh.

    Highly recommend this cooking class in Hoi An http://gioancookery.com/cookery/cookery-vi
    You'll be taken on a walking tour of the local market to pick up some fresh produce, and then head back to the kitchen to cook over a large table. This is good for big or small groups. 7 months ago

    Thanks Milly! I ended up opting for Tra Que Water Wheel - it was a very similar experience to what you have described, but located a little closer to our accommodation.

    We took a cycle to the market where our guide introduced us to some local produce, then took a tour of their farm located in Tra Que - a famous 300-year-old village just north of the Old Town (also a photographer's delight).

    We made 4 dishes in total; fresh spring rolls, papaya salad, a charcoal fish dish, and Vietnamese pancake (or banh xeo) all in a small kitchen looking over the farm.

    I'd definitely recommend this place for a friendly local experience.

    You had your tour but i still want to share my experience :)
    I had a street food tour in Hanoi last year which included a part of cooking class and another part enjoying street foods . That was so great ! The cooking class is a traditional vietnamese food, that is quite different with other cooking class . The company name is Foodie Tour (https://foodietours.vn/en/) . I found a video of that cooking class (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ubhz1wWL1eE) . Wow, i want to do it again. 6 months ago
