I’m Lua Le, who is passionate about cooking (and eating) healthy food. I am very proud of my home country's cuisine and first sought to introduce my own version of Vietnamese cuisine to the world when I traveled to Europe.
I specialize in authentic and healthy home-style dishes, making use of universal ingredients available the world over. I focus on a menu that requires no special tools to prepare or cook ensuring that you have no problem repeating the cooking process in your own kitchen. I use high quality ingredients, exclusive of MSG and I can tailor traditional menus to vegetarian/vegan palates, gluten-free, lactose-intolerant or special diets, etc.
We will start from scratch. I will advise you on how best to prepare the food and guide you step by step through that cooking process with my cooking experience/tips to ensure you to get the best results. I also enjoy sharing insights into Vietnamese culture and life with you.
P/S: My kitchen has a beautiful center city view from 7th floor of the apartment :)

I loved this cooking class and Lua was so welcoming! Would defiantly come again when next in HCMC!
We had some nice hours in a warm, family atmosphäre. Thanks Lua for explaining us a lot about the vietnamese (food) culture and for this beautiful, delicious evening!
Lua was very welcoming and explained a lot about traditional Vietnamese food. I enjoyed making the recipes. The only thing one should be aware is that you don't get to do all the steps. All the participants share as it is in a small kitchen. Having said that it was very homey and relaxed. Lua also tailored the menu to our preference which was great.
Lua was a good teacher. She loves sharing her knowledge and love of cooking vietnamese food. The spring rolls were great! The only downside was that the website didn't have the right address for her so after walking to the address provided by cookly, we had to take a cab to her new place. Overall it was a nice experience.
It was very nice and we learned a lot about food and culture. I would recommend everybody to do a cooking class with Lua. You can get a better feeling and understanding of Vietnam lifestyle and food culture. Thanks again for having us.
We had a really great and personal class with Lua, and the Goi Cuon we made were absolutely delicious. Lua is a great home chef, and taking her class beats all the "cooking schools" out there!
so nice class. I don`t konw about Vietnam food well, It`s good time to study of that class. And i appreciate teacher Lua! If I`ll visit again there, go back to take your class :)
She lives in city center, too easy to go! And class has 3 dishes, but you can create! She can let you know how to make it! And I like she’s course menu! Fried spring roll and bbq pork noodle and icecream!! You can enjoy perfact Veitnam homestyle dinner!!!! I really really recommand for everyone!!
