More About This Experience

Central Vietnam, particularly Hue, is famous nationwide for its cakes! A delicacy brought about not by coincidence as the Imperial palace for the Vietnamese dynasty was situated in Hue itself. You can be assured of the royalty that comes with the cakes! There are 2 main types of cakes & a dessert soup that you will learn in this mini snack initiation cooking workshop. The first is a thin rice cake Banh Nam with layers of crushed shrimp, and you just tend to keep going after you've had one. The challenge is in stopping! The second dish is also a shrimp dish, but made with tapioca flour starch and mixed with meat. It is called Banh Bot Loc and its great flavour makes it a favorite among Vietnamese. The soup dessert called Che is famous with a ton of variety, 36 kinds to be precise including the royal cooking methods and what the masses eat. Each type has its own unique taste. Here are just some examples: - Che hat sen (lotus seed) - Che nhan boc hat sen (longan stuffed lotus seed) - Che bot loc boc thit quay (cassava flour stuffed roasted pork) - Che bap (corn), Che troi nuoc (sticky rice cake and green pea paste) - Che khoai so (taro), - Che dau xanh (mung bean) - Che dau do (red bean) Just name one and our host will teach you how to make the best version of it just like how the locals appreciate it!

Fun class with local people! Had a good time learning how to make Vietnamese desserts, enjoyed it even more because it was summertime already and central Vietnam can get temperatures upwards of 3 degrees. A fun class and be sure to check out other courses that Backstreet Academy offers too.

Not knowing what to expect tagged along with my friend for this cooking class but was quite surprised by how much fun I had making these dishes. Maybe it was because I was working with ingredients I generally don't use in my cooking like lotus seeds, red beans and mug beans. Nice class with nice fri... Read more
