    We were very fortunate to have booked this wonderful half day cooking class. Our host was Anna - she was wonderful! She picked us up at our Hotel and we rode bikes to the local market. We had the pleasure of cooking a wonderful meal with Anna and enjoyed our meal overlooking the Red River.
    It was a truly memorable day and we enjoyed wonderful food!
