The flavors encountered abroad are highlights of a journey. What better way to bring those flavors home than to learn from the origin? Cooking classes are probably the most useful art courses one can experience.
Vietnamese cuisine had impressed us so much that we wanted to be able to cook some of our favorite dishes back home. Just our luck, our next destination had cooking classes!
There are two times/packages available: The morning tour, which includes transportation to and from your hotel/guesthouse, a trip to the market (not included in the afternoon package), a coconut boat ride through the river, and the cooking class.
Only available for the morning class, our first stop was a fresh food market. Here the guide taught us about the various ingredients, from meats to spices, used in Vietnamese cuisine.
After the market tour, we were shuttled to the cooking class.
Before cooking, all the guests took a quick coconut boat ride with a short crab fishing lesson.
On the menu for cooking class
Fresh spring rolls
Grilled aubergine (eggplant) with soya sauce
Phở bò (Beef Noodle)
Banana flower salad
Crispy Pancake (Bánh Xèo)
Sweet and sour fish sauce
We enjoyed this cooking class and gained a handful of new recipes to try back home!
