新市街での市場歩きからおもてなし料理の教室まで、ベトナム人のローカルな暮らしがよくわかり、料理もおいしくとても楽しかったです。なによりNhungさんの人柄がすばらしく、おしゃべりも楽しかったです。またNhungさんにお会いしたいと思いました。

So much more than a cooking class! It’s like coming over to a friend’s house for lunch, making a meal and sharing it together! A very personal and special experience, Nhung opens up her kitchen, home and life to share with you a piece of Vietnam. We learned so much - basics of preparing home cooked Vietnamese recipes and other dishes in addition to the meal we cooked that day, Vietnamese customs and traditions, and she shared what it’s like living in her community. Memories and impressions that will stay with us for a long time. Nhung takes you to the local market that connects and serves the 3 buildings in her community, shows you around while you pick out the items for your meal. All kinds of fresh meat and fish are being prepared right there in front of you, along side beautiful fresh vegetables and fruits. You then go to her home and prepare the meal with her. Then you sit around the table and enjoy the DELICIOUS food you just made together and share stories. Nothing fancy, just simple and well prepared home cooked Vietnamese food using very fresh ingredients. There’s no waste in a Vietnamese kitchen! Everything is / was used! Just an amazing and valuable experience She does a wonderful job of explaining each ingredient, how it’s used, mixed together and prepared, letting us take pictures and notes as went along. She has a background in tourism, her English is super and she can answer all your questions. Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for something a little more intimate, unique and more laid back, than a super structured cooking class in a professional kitchen. Thank you Nhung!!!

Nhung made the whole experience very enjoyable, from taking us through the market and telling us stories about her day-to-day life as a local to teaching us how to cook some local cuisines. The experience was authentic and the food was so delicious, everyone left with a full stomach! Highly recommend!

You could get nice local vietnamese food and experience. My wife and me spent a special time thanks to her hospitality, and her recipes will remind us of a good memory in Ha Noi!
