Great cooking school. Van is such a great host. A lot different to most cooking schools. This is an all day experience which is a great social and learning adventure also. You select a dish which you wish to cook, van helps selects your ingredients needed from the local market. The dishes you can choose aren't your normal boring generic... More

Had a fantastic day shopping at the markets followed by hours of cooking and eating. Van was a very patient and informative host. Made some very delicious food and learnt a lot about the recipes and produce. Would highly recommend.

We had a great day with Van today starting off at the markets to choose all the fresh ingredients we needed for our dishes. We stopped for Vietnamese coffee before heading to Van's house to prep for a whole day of cooking and eating! Van showed us how to debone chicken and how to prepare squid from the whole squid...

If you are researching cooking schools in Hoi An, this is the one. I doubt you will find any review that says Van is anything other than amazing and excellent. It isn't just the cooking tips (which are of course the reason you go) but her whole package. She is a lovely, warm and encouraging person who has a tremendous... More

Both myself and my boyfriend agree that today's class was the highlight of our trip to Vietnam. We left absolutely delighted with our day of exploring, prepping, cooking, eating and chatting. Cookbook to take home, lots of photos and a full belly ☺️ Van is a pro at what she does, 100% recommended!!

This cooking class is the highlight of our trip so far! Van is an amazing teacher and absolutely lovely person. The class felt less like a cooking class with a teacher instructing you what to do, and more like Van had invited us all over for lunch and we all helped cook the feast! The day started in the Markets... More

I have to admit, when my husband presented me with this Cookery course on Christmas Day, booked for Boxing Day, I was a little apprehensive at the thought of getting up at the crack of dawn to trudge round a market then cook for eight hours! I had come away to get away from the kitchen!! But what a lovely... More

Among several foodie tours around the world, this cooking class was the top this year. With a few years of French culinary experience, exploring South-east flavors (like Jean George) was long been my dream. So I decided to go to Vietnam since the country is the most popular destination for its tasty food. After reserving the class, what we had... More

My daughter and I second many of the reviews of Van and her class. We were so glad we were able to fit this in. It's a must do if you are in Hoi An. She starts with the market, which is amazing, and then explains all about Vietnamese ingredients and how to cook many dishes. Even if you don't... More
