A fantastic cooking course, a must do for any local, expat or traveller! It was a true authentic home cooking class. Lua was so friendly and welcoming, and very knowledgeable. We did the vegetarian class and loved learning about local ingredients and how to cook our favourite dishes. Highly recommended and will definitely go back for more. Thank you Lua!

"Best cooking class our family has ever done."
Best cooking class our family has ever done. Not only did we learn some great recipes, we were also shown a number of prep techniques we will use in future. Our Head Chef Tuan was fantastic and we benefited greatly from his knowledge, insights and his passion for Vietnamese cooking. Would highly recommend Grain Cooking Classes to anyone with a love of food and cooking.

Grain was the second cooking school I went to on my short solo trip to Saigon. Totally loved it and enjoyed myself!! The school was air-conditoned, nicely furnished, the chef was funny and taught well. We learnt 3 dishes and all 3 were really good, but my favourite was the tuna dish. Flavours exploded in my mouth and for that split second, I thought to myself, "Wow" I could cook something so delicious. We ended the class with Vietnamese coffee, a must have! Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed my vegan food tour with Spring. Everything we tried was tasty! The tour wasn’t just about food, we learned also about the History of Vietnam and Saigon, about the district 3 and 10 crossed. Many thanks for this nice moment spent together. I highly recommend 😄

"Highly recommend! This was fantastic"
Cannot recommend this enough. If you are looking to get a feel for the real ho chi min city and culture without the touristy areas this is your tour! Before the tour Hieu sent us a list of useful information (where to go and things to do). On the day he took us to 10 spots to try the foods and along the way explained about the different locations we were in. We were even able to make one of the dishes ourself. Hieu also took
Us to a flower market and communist housing block as an extra tour of the city. He was very knowledgable and explained alot about the food and culture of the city. Thank you so much to you and Spring

I had so much fun learning about all the different Vietnamese ingredients and where they originated from. The chef was very easy to understand the he made it very comfortable to ask any questions I had in mind. All the food was beautiful, delicious most importantly really easy to follow. The class was clean and organized with helpers on hand to jump in at anytime. After taking this class I am really inspired to take more classes so I can be a bette home cook and who knows maybe one day I can teach my own Vietnamese cooking class back in the US!

"Fantastic and authentic tour of Saigonese vegan street food"
Hieu and Spring were both very open, knowledgeable, and friendly. I immediately felt like I'd known them for a long time. The tour was very interesting, I learned a lot not only about the food but Vietnamese culture and local insights. We went through some back streets and neighbourhoods that I would not have discovered myself.
Hieu and Spring really made huge efforts to customise the tour and add in small surprises and gifts that made this tour really special. Highly recommended, one of the top things I have done in Vietnam so far.

"Must-do activity in HCM !!"
This time was my second time here. I joined the class last summer with my husband and had a great time so we’ve always wanted to come back. This time i brought my daughter and friends traveling from Japan and they all loved it ! Two four years old kids also enjoyed exploring the farm and doing some farmer’s work which they don’t get to experience often,. Thanks again for offering us a great experience!!

"Local, Authentic, Delicious"
So, we where five people taking part at the cooking classes at Lua s kitchen.
The place was very easy to find.
We cooked the suggested meals, and Lua explained every ingredience and the alternative (good for europeans !!) to us. Furthermore, thanks to very communicative guests, we got to know each other very well. While cooking, we chatted on this and that, and Lua explained everything, we wanted to know about vietnamese kitchen, streetfood and lifestyle.
The menu was a chickensalad with cabbage, mango and carrot, a delicious Pho Bo, and a banana-coconut-dessert.
We didn't cook it by our own, but every member had a little task, like chopping onions and other vegetables, making shrimp-chips or chopping the cabbage.-

Austin toured me around and explain in good English the culture of Vietnam. He took his time for me to try and eat their delicacies. It was great! He lets me see district 2 even though thats not part of the tour as I requested it!

We have a very informative tour of the market where we learned about some unfamiliar ingredients. Then we have a different person teaching the cooking and she was very knowledgeable, helpful and a lovely person. There were 4 in the class and the other couple from Korea were a pleasure to meet as well.
All in a wonderful morning with some very tasty food.

"Fantastic, If you’re a food lover who enjoys learning new recipes this is for you."
This was my first cooking class ever so for the experience was all the more exciting.
Ho Chi Minh Cooking Class did not disappoint.
It was located out of the city area, on an organic farm.
with a huge love for Vietnamese cuisine, this class was an easy choice.
Chef Tan was amazing, patient and fluent in English, welcoming and truly an artist in the kitchen.
I was happy to learn from her, such wonderful wholesome recipes that I look forward to cooking when I go back home.
As well the highlight was eating the food after cooking it, you can taste the freshness. Beats anything in the city.

"Perfect class for a small group looking to do something different in HCMC"
Class was great. Everything was prep'd ahead of time, and the menu was fantastic. Able to choose what we wanted to make - and actually got involved in the cooking. This was hands-on and FUN. Lua even shared the various recipes with us after the class.
She could probably charge double - it was that good - highly recommend.

My friend and I had a great Saturday morning with Lua and her kitchen :) She is very friendly and a detail oriented cook. She explained step by step procedure to us while letting us try making everything - it was not just watching but actually learning. Her home-cooking style class helped us learn a lot more about Vietnamese culture as well.
I ma definitely inspired by her and her delicious cooking!

We were tasting fish sauce, started with prawns in pumpkin flowers fried in starch, followed by a volcano like salad with chicken, cabbage and jellyfish. Then we boiled sea bass with mango and goji berry salad. Finished up with a nice coconut cream caramel and Vietnamese coffee.
The place was really nice, our chef was Binh, he was great and took us to the street for tasting in the evening. I can warmly recommend him and the team at Grain!

We appreciated the detailed instructions on how to prepare some simple dishes with good local ingredients (MSG free!). We had a good conversation regarding the recipes and learned a lot of combinations that worked well together. Lua was a great host and made the experience very enjoyable. Recommended activity near City Centre.

"Fantastic family experience"
We love Vietnamese food and wanted to do an activity that the whole family could participate in whilst learning genuine skills we could practice at home. Lua’s Cooking class achieved all of that. She asked us what we’d like to cook beforehand and then showed us step by step how to recreate the dishes we love along with learning basic principles that we could adapt to different ingredients at home. Our two teen boys also enjoyed the experience - and are keen to try these recipes at home - bonus!!! A great way to learn more about the local culture and food and Lua was a fantastic host!

"So much fun and great food!"
I loved the cooking school. It is very nice inside and the class is set up somewhat like Masterchef. Our instructor Binh was amazing and super friendly. Also made some good friends in the class that I explored the city with later. It was a really good introduction to Vietnamese cooking and food for chefs or home cooks at any level.

"Such a perfect get away in a hectic city"
Lua invited us in to our home with such enthusiasm and kindness. As four backpackers trying to discover Vietnam nothing was more authentic than emerging Lua and learning more about the Vietnamese cuisine. I would recommend this experience over any day trip. Thank you for everything you taught us!

"So much fun!"
We had such a great time cooking with Lua. She taught us how to make spring rolls and turmeric noodles with prawn and pork in her home kitchen which had a great view of the city. 10/10 would recommend if you’re interested in Vietnamese cooking :)
