More About This Experience

Vegetarian cuisine is no longer the 'demanding & difficult' option that it used to be - now it's easy being green, even in Vietnam where most dishes are accompanied with meat. It is no wonder that many claim Vietnam to have one of the most seductive food on the planet - which is not difficult to 'digest' if you're paying attention to the individuals who know how to manipulate ingredients in the most clever fashion to create flavors that are simply out of this world. We welcome all food lovers, whether you are vegetarian or not, to this simple yet exquisite experience where you can learn how to prepare a variety of vegetarian dishes. Join us on this culinary adventure where you will not only learn how to cook interesting new dishes but find a new appreciation for vegetarian cuisine. In this class you will learn to cook: - Fruit springroll - Green banana with tofu - Pumpkin ball - Morning glory

I had a great time with Mrs. Hang and Rose, the facilitator. A truly authentic experience in going with them to the market, picking out vegetables and freshly-made tofu, and then cooking in her house. I liked eating together with both of them -- do plan for a hearty, early, lunch if you go for this! There was only me in the class so I felt very lucky. Most of my friends were surprised by the vegetarian element. I treasure this experience, and was happy with the way Rose and the Backstreet Academy facilitated this for me.

I had such a wonderful time with Thao (acting as translator) cooking with Mrs Hang in her local home. They were extremely accommodating to cater all vegetarian food for me. I really enjoyed this style of cooking class, as it was more like cooking at home with your mum and learning to cook local home cooked meals. I especially loved the deep fried fruit spring rolls, and the young banana curry. I'd highly recommend this to anyone wanting an insight into homemade Vietnamese food. Thank you Mrs Hang for your wonderful hospitality, and to Thao for all your help and food recommendations around Hanoi! :)

The food was delicious. More casual than a professional class - not a fancy cooking school so set your expectations. Take notes so you can remember how to recreate.

Excellent authentic cooking class in the house of a very friendly host. We prepared everything from scratch and the recipes are not too hard, so it should be ideal to replicate at home. Highlight was the pumpkin fried nuggets - yummy!
