The Blue Butterfly is located inside the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter, occupying a 300-year-old two-story wooden house that promises a highly atmospheric and enjoyable environment. Its antique architecture should be the most attractive feature of this restaurant with all the furniture made of wood, traditional antiquities and Hanoiâ€™s scenes hanging along the wall…

The cooking class exceeded both of our wildest expectations for the afternoon. To start with the space was clean organized and everyone was very professional. We reviewed the menu started the broth for our first dish, and then the chef took us all to the market via a wonderful car ride. As we stroll through the market with the chef it was very comfortable knowing you’re with a professional who had been shopping there for over a decade. He knew all of his favorite vendors answered all of our questions and treated us to a few extra goodies along the way including some dried apricots, and the famous incubated duck egg, that would be the duck egg with the baby duck inside! We could go on for many more sentences about how much we loved the experience, but to summarize it was our favorite few hours of our entire Vietnam trip and I couldn’t imagine anyone would be anything less then completely thrilled that they did it!
Such great fun going around the market and choosing the fresh ingredients we were about to use in the cooking class. Good range of dishes made too and our chef made sure everyone had the help they needed
We loved this cooking class. Although we have been to many Asian markets the trip to the market with our chef was great - very informative and a great experience. The cooking class was awesome. We got to cook Ban Xeo as well as our chef felt this was something we would be able to make at home. All food was beautiful and w3 learnt a lot about Vietnamese cooking. Would definitely recommend.
Awesome class and the market tour was great too!
I am an experienced home cook and found this class very enjoyable. The facility was clean and well stocked. The class was organized and had a good flow. We started preparation for one dish then went out to the market and tasted a variety of street foods before returning to prepare the other dishes. I feel I am now capable to take these skills home to prepare some of my favorite Vietnamese dishes. Best of all we were able to sit down and enjoy our meal at the end!
That was truly an amazing experience. Best and the most productive few hours spent in Hanoi crested with a feast of flavours and beautifully served dishes. And what's is the most satisfying - that we cooked it all ourselves. Of course with directions from a great chef Hưng - Pickle. Now it's time to try those recipes at home! :)
I recommend this cooking class! It was a good time in my life!
