Get to know Vietnamese cuisine like never before, on a market tour and cooking class with a food stylist and brand manager for some of the most famous restaurants in Saigon.
We’ll pick you up directly from your hotel reception, and head to a local market to meet your chef, tour guide and cooking partner for the day. She is absolutely passionate about great food, healthy eating and hosting guests in her country and kitchen, and will ensure you feel totally at home on this gastronomic exploration of Ho Chi Minh City.
She’ll show you around a traditional market, selecting the very best seasonal produce from local suppliers on an immersive experience in a genuinely authentic setting. The menu for your day will depend entirely upon what you buy in the market, what’s in season, and looks, feels, and smells the freshest and of the best quality.
Shopping done, we’ll head to a vintage kitchen to begin a hands-on cooking class in a homely atmosphere. As well as a food stylist, your chef is in charge of developing new menus for the restaurants, has many years experience cooking and has spent 10 years travelling and living overseas.
She will share all her best recipes, tips for getting the best out of your ingredients and for unlocking that distinctive Vietnamese flavour that is so well-renowned. As you cook lunch, share stories and take the opportunity to get a deep understand of Vietnamese food.
From its influences, its part in culture, to little hints and secrets known only to locals, you’ll be an absolute expert in Vietnamese cuisine. Then, enjoy your delicious lunch and leave with new skills and an abundance in knowledge when it comes to this world-class food scene.
