Cooking class and educational tours of organic gardens and market were a blast! We made rice paper, fresh spring rolls, money bags, fish wrapped in banana leaf, and eggplant in clay pot. Lyly was quick to adapt to my daughters mushroom allergy as well as answer all my many garden and market questions with ease! Absolutely a great class and use of time while in Hoi An, staffed with complete professionals. Thanks Lyly for teaching us so much so fast!!! Both my son and daughter have talked about the class many times since.

Loving the boat trip with my friend Sofia! And wait, there’s more! After getting to know the taste of ginger and chia seed drink we were introduced to various Vietnamese herb spice. It was very helpful as we will try to add it to our future dishes back home. But the best part it is, we got to cook Vietnamese cuisine with the help of a very respectable chef! It was truly a lovely cooking experience. The culture was so enticing that i never thought of it that way. We came home with another knowledge and skill from another country.
Great class. The food I cooked tasted delicious. I feel very able to replicate at home and I’m looking forward to sharing these dishes with friends and family. They give you recipe information too.
A great half day that included a visit to a local farm and market. The class was excellent. I feel able to try the dishes at home. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed eating our food at the end. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they really looked after us.
We were so happy we booked the class with the villiage visit. We enjoyed seeing the different vegetables that were grown and enjoyed learning a little more about the Vietnamese culture. The cooking class was fun and set up very well.
We had the most wonderful time. the chef was very friendly, funny and really knowledgable and went out of her way to make our experience absolutely amazing. We made egg plant in claypot and also a very delicious spicy banana leaf fish. The whole setting is by the beautiful river which made it even more memorable.
The class started with a walk through the local market for fresh ingredients and then a short boat ride to the class. My boyfriend and I cooked and ate fresh spring rolls with shrimp, mango salad with stir fried beef, skewers of chicken, peppers, lemon leaves and onions. Finally a cabbage broth with shrimps cooked in a clay pot. It turned out to be our greatest activity in Hoi An. And of course, the result is a fabulous lunch. Thoroughly recommend this class!
