Wonderful adventurous boat ride to little island with beautiful scenery. We visited some people in the local village and learned more about the history of the food. Then we started to prepare and cook several dishes. The best part was that we got to enjoy those absolutely delicious meals. My Grandma's Home cooking was our highlight during our trip in Vietnam.

From the moment we left the office with Vi, our family of four had a ball. She showed us all the produce at the market & made sure those feisty market ladies didn’t get cross at us. The cooking lesson itself was really well organised & the food was superb. Having the class on the island made it a special experience. Grandma put in an appearance & amazed my 9 yr old. I ate everything we cooked & couldn’t eat another morsel for 24 hours!
What a great day from the informative market tour and leisurely boat ride to the yummy cooking class and learning about the family. Thom was wonderful and it was a pleasure spending the day with her and our group. Can’t wait to try the recipes at home.
It was good that each of us had our own cooking station and we eat what we cooked. The venue was lovely and meeting grandma was a nice touch! The whole process of making rice crepes was an eye-opener. So much work, skill and time involved in cooking each delicate piece! Overall great fun and an interesting day out. I would also like to commend the cooking instructor as well. She was charming and very knowledgeable about the use of local herbs.
I’m a French cook and I was so excited to go for a cooking class and it was awesome. Our guide was the sweetest girl ever!!!! The food was so great and so glad to learned this great and tasty food.
Everything was delicious!
Very nice host and a good experience overall
This was the best thing we could have done in Hoi An. It was a different view of Hoi An, displaying the rural side of the city that most tourists don't get to see. The food was spectacular, and it was great to make the food that we were enjoying in the rest of Vietnam. The staff was superb, could have not asked for more dedicated and considerate service. Totally recommend!
We saw a lot of the rural hoi an and how the people living off tourism dwell there, very interesting. The class takes place in a hut, with a jungle feeling all around, the tools and ingredients however left nothing to be desired. Our guide Phuong was very knowledgable and a lot of fun. Thank you!
Our day started with a boat ride to the local market. Our guide Phuong was super lovely and knowledged about the local food and culture. She explained us during the market tour what ingredients Vietnamese people usually use for thei cooking and also what benefits different herbs ands ingredients have. We then bought some of the ingredients that we would later user for the cooking class. After the market tour we went on a longer boat ride to the island where the cooking class took place. It's a very local farmer island with few people living there. Absolutely great and relaxing environment to get away from the busy old town in Hoi An. The food we made was delicious and the team really friendly and helpful. Grandma was there as well and showed us how to make rice milk. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend to take a cooking class while you are in Hoi An as it really is a must do! Thanks again to Phuong!
I did this tour on the recommendation of one of my friends. My wife and I were staying in Hoi An for the week. We had the best experience ever learning how to cook Vietnamese Cuisine. We started the day with a market tour followed by the cooking class. Then, the guide took us to a small boat and we took a ride to see the lovely rural side of Vietnam. We learned how to make rice milk, then we made spring rolls, green papaya salad and tuna clay pot crispy pancakes. We felt so grateful for this genuine local experience.
