Cooking Class

A very popular activity during a tour of Vietnam is a cooking class. Vietnamese cuisine is globally known for its varied flavours, presentation and freshness. Classes usually take a half a day and there are several to choose from in Hoi An. The more developed classes involve a trip to the nearby market to buy the traditional Vietnamese ingredients. We’ve recently reviewed the classes ourselves, click below to find out what we cooked!

Light House Restaurant

Lighthouse Restaurant, located on Cam Nam island, the other side of the river from Hoi An’s old town. The course started with a tour of the local market, during which the instructor brings you a few traditional Vietnamese snacks and told you about all the different plants that they use in cooking. You can learn four recipes: shrimp spring rolls; squid stuffed with deliciously seasoned pork; tuna hot pot; and water-spinach garnished with garlic. They try to use ingredients that Westerners would be able to buy back home, so it is a very practical course. They also gave out printed copies of the recipes with detailed instructions to help you remember them. This costs US$21 for over four hours.

They also run bicycle tours before the market tour, which are apparently a very good way to meet some true locals, off the tourist track.
