We will begin our adventure in the Ancient Quarter. First, a stroll through the Explore Hoi An Local Market to purchase all fresh ingredients for the class. Then, we board our river basket boat for a relaxing 30-minute ride on the Thu Bon river.
We then walk through the vegetable fields to our teaching kitchen overlooking the water coconut trees and rows of vegetables while you enjoy the cool breeze and the peaceful setting of the countryside.
Vietnamese cuisine has a number of popular dishes from North to South with each region having their own signature dishes. At cooking class hoi an, we follow the menu created to give you a selection of appetizers, main dish and soup that portrays Vietnamese cuisine from all three main regions: Banh Xeo from the Central region (prepared Hoi An style), banana flower salad, Pho Bo cooked Ha Noi style (i.e. without sugar). And also, Goi Cuon Tom, or prawn spring rolls (where we will avoid 4-5 common mistakes so yours will be delicious).
Each dish is demonstrated first, then it's your turn to replicate at your individual cooking station and make your own delicious Vietnamese appetizer. Then on to the next appetizer or main.
Finally, as you still savor the tastes and knowledge of amazing Vietnamese food, we board the basket boat back, dropping you off in the Old Town of Hoi An, where this amazing journey started.
