Learn the secrets of Vietnamese cooking

This half day experience is perfect for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the flavours of Vietnam and pick up a new skill along the way.

Drive to the Hai Scout Café in Hoi An town for a welcome then visit Hoi An's colourful market to soak up the atmosphere and experience the sights, sounds and aromas of this busy market.

Take the opportunity to interact with the local sellers and learn about all the ingredients to be used in the cooking lesson later.

A leisurely cruise along Hoi An River aboard the Red Bridge boat will transport you to your cooking class where you will learn how to prepare and cook the perfect Vietnamese dish. This is your opportunity to view local river life so make sure you have your camera ready.

On arrival at Red Bridge, explore the cooking school’s herb garden, before learning about some of Hoi An’s and Vietnam’s well-known dishes.

The cooking lesson runs for about 2 hours - the Red Bridge chefs first demonstrate each dish before you prepare the same dish yourself.

Included in the class is a brief introduction to Vietnamese food carving (plate decoration).

After the lesson, you may indulge in the delicious results of your efforts for lunch.
