More About This Experience

Lots of Vietnam's cuisine is defined by Hue, primarily due to the historical importance as the Nguyen Dynasty's capital. While its economic & political importance has declined into nothingness, usurped by the bustling Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city, its culture lives on throughout the country in the form of food, products, languages and many more. Food is one that permeates through every level of society, and no matter which Vietnamese city you are in, you will definitely see 'Hue' signs plastered all over local eateries! Therefore if you're interested in Vietnamese cuisine, you must learn the way they are made in Hue, where it all began. Here are some of the classic dishes that you will be learning how to make: 1) Nem Lui (grilled pork skewer) is a dish of sweet, minced pork around bamboo sticks grilled over hot coals. 2) Banh Khoai (Vietnamese savory pancakes) is one of most traditional Vietnamese Food in central Vietnam. It looks like BXeo. However, their shapes are smaller and there is more filling inside. Vietnamese always enjoy these cakes with vegetables and dipping sauce. 3) Bun Thit Nuong (literally means "grilled meat on noodles") is a popular cold rice vermicelli noodle dish topped with grilled pork, fresh herbs and vegetables. The dish is normally dressed in a fish sauce and has a slightly sweet taste.

Our host was so lovely. She spoke excellent English, was very friendly and answered all my questions about the dishes we were cooking (and also about some of my other fav vietnamese foods as well!). The lady whose kitchen we were cooking in was also lovely and very welcoming. She gently corrected our pancake making technique and encouraged us to get involved with every aspect of the cooking. And the food was delicious!!

We booked a cooking class with BA and it was interesting. We learnt to cook some dishes and taste so good. The host, she was lovely and patient. Now I know how to cook some Vietnamese food for my friends and my family. I will book their other activities when I come back to Vietnam next trip.

We have just come back from our cooking class with a lovely lady at her family home in Hue. She was a lovely host and although couldn't speak any English however fantastic translator Annie made the whole experience nice and easy. They were all so friendly and welcoming. We helped make pork and lemongrass, marinated grilled pork and pancakes. Annie translated the recipes and process perfectly and got us very involved. We then ate together in the home and was shown the Vietnamese way to eat. We learnt about their family and at times were joined by them too. The whole experience was very authentic and humbling. Overall great experience hosted by wonderful people!

It was a nice and pleasant experience. Even if we haven't learn anything in cooking, and the quality of the food was basic. But it was nice to be in that family house. Unfortunately we have to say that it was really too expensive for what we got. Also it is far from Hue center, so you need to add the taxi fair.
