I took my skeptical 12 year old son with me for a morning market tour and class and we both loved it. I found the market tour fascinating and our guide/instructor (Chang?) was an excellent teacher taking us swiftly through the preparation of 4 dishes. I left the class with a much better understanding of how to work without Vietnamese ingredients and my son had fun. It was also a pleasure seeing my son blossom as a cook.
The chef was a really knowledgable local and passed on some great tips and tricks. He made the class educational, enjoyable and fun. There were beers or juice on the house and he even accompanied me to the local market to help me buy some local food stuff.
Fantastic way to spend a morning in Hanoi. Market tour was very interesting with great descriptions by our chef. Techniques were displayed very well and class was very enjoyable. Would highly recommend it.
Must tour in Hanoi! The menu we chose: food from the coast! The chef Thuy Is very professional. Food that we prepared were all good! Restaurant level taste not just home-cooked taste!
I enjoyed the class and the interaction very much :)
Fun and informative way to spend time in Hanoi. The market tour led by the owner. It was a perfect introduction to Vietnamese culture and food, also gave us greater appreciation and understanding of what we were doing during cooking. The progress started by chopping, slicing and dicing. This was such a fun experience and I would highly recommend it to whom loves cooking or finds somewhere worth to spend time.
Very fun class and tasty food. My fiance and I had a fantastic time! We enjoyed going to the local food market and our guide was very informative. Thank you Hanoi Cooking Centre for making it such an enjoyable and memorable experience!
My boyfriend and I had a very nice experience at the Hanoi Cooking Centre. There was a short market tour then we got back to the classroom as to cook our dishes. The teacher was wonderful since he suggested so many new tips to us. The meal is incredible yummy. Highly recommend activity to do in Hanoi.
We truly had a private and lovely class and really learned on our way during visiting Chau Long market. Then we returned back to the kitchen where we prepared Pho, omelette spring rolls and Bun Cha. We thoroughly enjoyed this cooking class. The chef was fun, friendly and helpful. The chef taught us step by step so we can follow and went through everything. We got to keep the recipes and by feeling confident that we can make the menu again at home after this class. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who has half day to spare in Hanoi.
It was so interesting walking around the market and learning something of the Vietnamese culture. The chef was so nice and know western culture very well. He chose recipes that could be made back home, he also told us alternatives for some ingredients. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious, Thanks to the team for making my time here so memorable! We will definitely recommend to all.
We truly fall in love with cooking class at Hanoi Cooking Centre. We love how they organized the class and their detailed explanation. The whole market tour was so interesting to learn about the ingredients and real Vietnamese traditional culinary. Then following by making a delicious meal while enjoying great conversation with them. We were so impressed with knowledgeable and friendly staffs! Beautiful location. I learned so much of cooking techniques which I definitely will cook them again at home by myself.
Wowww what a fun and cultural experience. The cooking class was not too hard as a beginner and learned so much about vietnamese food - recommended!
