Come and discover this unique and healthy cooking class. Not only will we teach you how to cook but you will also learn how to use food as medicine and discover Vietnamese food culture. Vietnamese food is one of the healthiest cuisines in the world.
Our class is held in the most beautiful agricultural village where you will see our Vietnamese Medicine Garden with many different kinds of herbs, spices and vegetables for you to select from. Visiting our mushroom house will also give you the opportunity to discover how to grow them and experience what it is like to be a Vietnamese farmer. Finally our professional chef will show you how easy it is to prepare delicious healthy food using these ingredients during a hands-on cooking class.
Your time in the Agricultural Village is a great chance to escape the hustle and bustle of busy HCM city where you will replace the sound of bike and car horns with the peaceful sounds of cows, birds, ducks, frogs and other inhabitants of our organic farm land.
What I liked: There are all sorts of fresh herbs and fruits growing a feet away from the classroom. You can just taste the love and care that goes into their produce. Not to mention the staff are quirky and lively. They make the experience so much fun!
What to know: Before the class the chef tours you around the farm and teaches you about farming techniques. He/she then goes deep into what each ingredient is used for what. Did you know you can cure coughing by boiling kumquat? It's also great for salad dressing!
Good for: Anyone looking to get the perfect introduction into healthy Vietnamese dishes, THIS class is it! Take a step away from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh city and into this tranquil agricultural village. Have a blast cooking & getting your knowledge on!

good hands on, chef really talented and very helpful. place could be more presentable. Overall enjoying the experience.
I loved the authenticity of the experience. We had to drive a long way out of town but you were then surrounded by fields and gardens, complete with buffalo and pigs. The food was absolutely delicious, the lessons not too taxing but provided the foundation of Vietnamese flavours and having gathered the ingredients yourself you knew how fresh they were! Would have been more fun to do it with friends but even as a single it was fun. Thank you so much!
The head chef was very professional and very easy to follow
Professional and personable team. Very informative course- loved that we got to spend time on the actual farm and pick the vegetables and fruits we would use for the cooking session. So much fun- would do it again when next in Saigon.
The organic Farm to table concept allowed every guest to experience to be a farmer and chef for a day! Chef Tan amazed us with how he run his farm with so much passion and dedication in teaching his skills to others and providing job for locals!
This hands-on organic farm tour and cooking class in Ho Chi Minh was the highlight of our trip. Traveling to Vietnam in the slow season has its advantages, like having an afternoon one-on-one cooking class with Chef Tan. He made the cooking class so much fun and incredibly informative. We can't wait to try out some of the delicious dishes at home. A great team of people help make this experience an unforgettable taste journey you will enjoy from start to finish. It was also very convenient, the pick up car was waiting at the hotel lobby and provided a return as well. We loved our day and Highly recommend this 5 star class!
Quite different from traditional cooking classes that take place in fancy kitchen with fancy tools. In this one, you would have a chance to get close to the market, the farm and to learn the basic but important components of vietnamese cooking and flavors. The food are in a big portion and tasty. Make sure you keep your stomach empty before taking the class!
Chef Toung (hope I spell his name correctly) was the one who teach me Vietnamese foods. He and Chef Tan were very friendly and gave me fun experiences to cook. Thank you so much Sara
Traveling to Vietnam in the slow season has its advantages, like having a one-on-one cooking class with Chef Tan. This is not the kind of cooking class where it is watching or sharing duties with someone else, everything is hands on and complete, and most importantly Chef Tan not only teaches what to cook but also the how and the why. Technique is a part of every dish. It was a great morning and the highlight of the Ho Chi Minh City vacation. It was also very convenient, the pick up car was waiting at the hotel lobby and provided a return to the city as well. By the way, the Chinese inscription on the Buddhist statue on the dashboard of the car reads, "Yi Lu Shun Feng" which translates into "Bon Voyage", so sign up for the cooking class and have a great food trip!
I adored my cooking class so much. I loved seeing the farm and learning about the medicinal qualities of the plants. I picked the veggies I needed to make the dishes id chosen. chef tan taught me. he spoke perfect English and was informative and fun. well worth the journey to the farm and it was nice to get out of the city and onto the farm. 5 stars and highly recommended. :)
Fabulous lesson about both the ingredients from the farm and the best way to cook them. A great team of people helps make this experience an unforgettable taste journey you will enjoy from start to finish.
We had so much fun at this hands-on cooking class in Ho Chi Minh. The organic-farm tour is a highlight and the cooking instructor gives you a lot of interesting insights about Vietnamese food culture. Can't wait to try out some of the dishes at home. Highly recommend this class!
