We went to a local market and saw how the vegetables are grown in the fields. The contact was ver personal. We felt like members of the family. The instructions were very good. The chef also showed us a lot of things. He made works of art of tomato and cucumber. Baking pancakes was big fun

The class with Chef Danny was a blast. We were whisked away by scooter to the market where we learned a bit more about the things for sale and Danny picked out some of the ingredients we’d be using later that night. Back at his place we jumped right in to cooking, and Danny taught us to make a delicious Vietnamese menu all while keeping us entertained. In the end we had a lot of fun and the meal was totally delicious. Thank you, Chef Danny and your family for welcoming us into your home for this experience. Highly recommend!
Danny and his wife were fantastic, the market experience was really interesting & the actual cooking class a lot of fun and really easy. Great for all age groups and I would highly recommend.
So glad we booked this class. We had a great experience. The chef and his wife took us to the markets to choose the food and then back to there home to prepare the meal. Lots of hands on preparation and explanation. Not just watching. Learnt it and thoroughly enjoyed eating the food..especially the dipping sauce.....we were so full after. Loved the hospitality and there son was so entertaining while we ate.
Chef Danny and his wife greeted us on their motorbikes at our hostel and took us to the local market. Danny showed us the different vegetables, meat, and fish they sell at the market. He even picked up some veggies and shrimp that we would use in the meal we were cooking last night. We then went to his garden where Danny picked some herbs and lettuce we would use while cooking. The whole cooking experience was so much fun and so intimate as it was just me, my boyfriend, and Danny’s family in his home. After cookin we ate our meal and everything tasted delicious! Once we were finished eating we took some final photos and Danny emailed us some of the pictures his wife took of us, the recipies, and some of Danny’s favorite pictures from Hoi An in general. Overall it was definitely a highlight of our time in Vietnam! 10/10 would recommend!!!
We’ve simply had an amazing time — would definitely recommend to anyone who’s searching for a cooking class in Hoi An.
Danny and his wife picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the market by motorbike (smooth ride even for people not used to motorbike riding). We visited the market with Danny and got to taste some local sweets. Then we went to their home for cooking. Danny is a great cook and showed us new techniques. He is also very funny and we enjoyed our cooking time. His wife is welcoming as are their 2 kids. If there is only one downside is that we would have like a tour of the herb farm. We only saw it for a few minutes and would have liked to know how it works. Overall, a great experience! Thank you!
Picked up by scooter by Danny and his wife to go for shopping at local market. After that we had a very nice cooking class. Enjoyed the delicious food!
Danny is a great guy It was a very fine and fun cooking class Definetly recommend this!!!
We did the local market and cooking class. The chef Danny is a very funny guy. We went to the local Hoi An market first to buy some ingredients and then went to their home for the class. The food is so good and you'll get all recipes at the end of the class. Really recommend this cooking class in Hoi An! Pickup and dropoff at your hotel is included.
We did the afternoon session. The tour was great and Danny is really fun. I’m vegetarian and we brought the ingredients for my meal. The best part is getting back to his home in a vegetable village. A tasty local drink had us ready for our class. It was one-stop entertainment. The dishes were fun to make and the smell made our taste buds water. His family is a delight. We were treated to entertain from his 5-year-old as we ate. A very happy boy who liked people. His wife is very attentive and makes sure you have all you need. His daughter blew me away with her English. I recommend everyone to cook with Danny.
We did this cooking class. My partner has some allergies that at are usually a bit tricky to manage but they did an amazing job ensuring he gets the same experience as the rest of us. Danny and his entire family welcomed us with an open heart. We really enjoyed every second. I can recommend this place 100%
It was so much fun to cook with Danny and the meals were just amazing. Thank you so much!
I wish I had dinner at his house everyday. He made us feel so welcomed and apart of his family.
The teacher and his family were very nice and helpful. Very kind family and great food.
Danny was a great teacher and host in his home. There was so much food and it was nice to see his herb garden and really understand how Vietnamese cook.
My mum & I really enjoyed our time with Danny & his family! We got to see the family garden and then spend time in their home, cooking. I would highly recommend this tour!
The cooking class with Danny and Lan was so much fun! We were able to choose from three menus and learnt to cook 4 traditional Vietnamese dishes. They were both extremely lovely people and even picked us up and dropped us back to our accommodation.
I loved this experiencience and this is the kind of things I love to live when I travel. I love taking back home little pieces of culture anywhere I go, and this class is something to always remember. Lovely place, lovely people, delicious food.
We loved the whole experience from the market to the class and Chef Danny and his wife, Lan. This was one of the best experiences of our trip. We learned so much about food and preparation and the class is outside town a bit so we got to ride on the back of scooters to get there which was so much fun. Chef Danny and Lan are so friendly and knowledgeable. The food is delicious and so fresh. Don’t miss this!
Exceptional, highly recommend for hospitality, quality and over all experience. Chef Danny and his family are hard working beautiful people who deserve for their business to grow...
We had an amazing day at Dannys place. Danny and his family are lovely and the food was simply perfect! Thank you! Best, Maike & Fabian
Myself and my partner had a great time in the cooking class. It ended up just being the 2 of us in the class, so Danny brought us into his home to carry out the cooking class. Firstly, Danny collected us on mopeds and brought us to the local market where he explained different foods to us. After that he brought us to his kitchen where we prepared a 5 course meal. All the food was excellent! We had a great afternoon with Danny. We would definitely recommend this cooking class to anyone!
Wonderful interactive cooking class. Danny is the perfect entertainer and host, as well as an excellent chef! His family is delightful and his home is beautiful. My two friends and I hugely enjoyed the course. The classes hold a maximum of 5 people so we all received one to one guidance. Lots of fun - thank you, Chef Danny!
I honestly don't write a review that often but in some cases I make an exception. My girlfriend and I travel a lot and sometimes you just see and feel when someone deserves a good review. Danny (the chef) is a great entertainer and took his time for the cooking and answering all of our questions. We loved working in the garden and ofcourse that resulted in really nice pictures. Besides this, all the people who live here were smiling all the time and loved to see us struggling with the tools. As for the cooking part. We prepared 5 really nice dishes. Danny makes his way through the dishes with a lot of fun, good tempo and with a catching enthusiasm. I can't compare this class with other classes in Hoi An but I also can't think of something to make this one even better. Danny, keep up the good work! Thanks for having us! Ps. I know see that we did not get a foot massage but that doesn't bother me.
Worth to join it. Thanks cook Danny. Highly recommended!!
The Pickup by motorbikes at the Hotel was great. Visited the market with a local. Cooked typical Vietnamese dishes, Danny explained everything to us and we had a lot of fun. Tasted delicious!
