Our tour starts with a visit to Ben Thanh market  where our chef will give an introduction to basic elements of Vietnamese cuisine. The market is separated into several areas, there is the wet market with seafood and meat. The fresh fruit and vegetables section, and the dry goods and souvenirs all crammed next to each other. The market also has its own stalls selling freshly cooked dishes ranging from rice paper rolls to noodle soups, you can grab a plastic chair and munch away with the locals. At the market, the chef will bring the main ingredients for what we would be cooking later :  tofu, prawns, herbs, salad leaves, tomatoes, pork and aubergine.

After the market we head to the cooking school which is situated in a colonial style building above Hoa Tuc restaurant. For a warm and fun ambiance, participants cook all together with our Chef but everyone has their own material and ingredients for a better understanding of cooking techniques. Normally, 03 delicious dishes will be taught on the spot and the cooking menu depends on the day you have booked.
