Do you know Hoi An is more than a living museum of Vietnam? Apart from visiting the ancient relics like Japanese Bridge, Thanh Ha Pottery Village or extending to My Son, there's one activity you just should not skip - the cooking class hosted at the famed Green Bamboo Cooking School, which receives several hundreds of good reviews on TripAdvisor and is dubbed ‘the best cooking class you will find’ by travelers. The host, Van, is a happy foodie speaking exceptional English and has deep understanding of both Vietnamese and Western mindsets and approaches.
Located in Van's beautiful home to ensure a memorable Vietnamese experience, the class usually begins in the morning. Van picks you up at the hotel and drive to the local market to buy ingredients and learn more about local produce. After having everything, head back to the school and prepare making a variety of local dishes of your choice under Van’s instruction. With hands on participation, your creation is shaped and will be shared around Van’s kitchen table.
