"Fun class with delicious meal"
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.

"Highly recommend to visit"
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.
