Vietnamese food is one of the things that makes visiting Vietnam so wonderful. Each dish is a combination of fresh meat and vegetables, with just the right amount of herbs and balance of sweet and sour.
In Hoi An many of the restaurants scattered through Old Town offer half-day cooking classes to give you an introduction and look into creating some of the region’s most popular dishes. Cau La, Banh Xeo, chicken in lemon grass and Hoi An’s popular Whites Rose are all offered in a variety of classes where you can practice your culinary skills with friends or family. Most of the restaurants that offer cooking classes advertise out the front of their restaurant so just pop in and make a booking and take some delicious recipes back home with you to remember Vietnam.
