Hanoi Cooking Class DESCRIPTION
Local markets in the outskirts of Hanoi feature breathtaking arrays of fresh veggies, fruits, and local produces that thrive in peaceful villages along the fertile flood plains of the Red River. We invite you to explore these incredible ingredients at a wet market before learning to cook several locally loved Vietnamese dishes during our exclusive Hanoi Cooking Class.
Begin with a tour to Ngoc Lam Market, where you’ll go for a stroll while the chef is showing us different kinds of fruits, vegetables, and herds typically used in Vietnamese dishes, including familiar ones such as lemon grass, green onions, hot chili and mints, as well as those that might be new to you, like Vietnamese coriander, piper lolot and purple perilla leaf.
Enjoy a private, hands-on cooking demonstration, you’ll thinly slice reddish-purple banana flowers and put them into the lime-juice water, pound roasted peanuts into ice powder, and carefully wrap rice paper with fresh herbs. That’s traditional cooking techniques, direct from the heart – the way Vietnamese food was meant to be prepared.
With tips on presentation for a hearty food of the North and chopstick usage before savoring your culinary creations, this Hanoi Cooking Class will activate our five senses – sight, sound, touch, taste and smell that will delight and inspire lovers of Vietnamese cooking.
While our food tours remain great choices if you’re interested mainly in the food and markets themselves, this cooking option is recommended if you want to gain a deeper understanding of Vietnamese home cooking.
Note: You can request to learn how to cook the Vietnamese dishes you love, or our chef will suggest the menu based on what’s in season.
