What you'll do

First up I'll take you to shop for fresh vegan ingredients at the bustling Tan Dinh Market - a short 5-minute taxi ride from the school (fair included). At the market, you'll be able to sample some delicious local fruits and learn how to pick the best ingredients before heading back to the kitchen. Once we get into the kitchen, you'll be introduced to my mother (Lan) who'll expertly guide you through a number of contemporary and classic vegan Vietnamese dishes such as Vietnamese vegan curry (ca ri), vegan Vietnamese 'beef' stew (bo kho chay), and lemongrass fried tofu (dau hu chien sa). We pride ourselves on our small class sizes (maximum 4 people), and the scale of the class means you'll get a more personal, hands-on experience with the undivided attention of our expert resident chef (my mom).

Thao

Xin Chao! I'm Thao. In 2015 I established Tandem Cafe, and then this year I established Tandem Vietnamese Culinary School in my hometown of Saigon. I opened Tandem with the hope of creating a place where locals and travellers alike can come and enjoy my Mum’s cooking and healthy drinks. I wanted to introduce people to the wealth and variety of the tropical country that is Vietnam with all its unique ingredients and spices.

Where you'll be

We'll meet at the cooking school at 8:30. From there we'll take in the colours and sounds of Tan Dinh Market – one of Saigon's more traditional markets not frequented by tourists. After we've had a look around the market and been introduced to the ingredients which make up Vietnamese cooking we'll head back to the kitchen where we'll cook up a feast of local dishes together.
