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.

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.
