Being a professional chef, I am always interested in learning new things and have taken several cooking classes while traveling to different countries. We looked around while in Hoi Anand settled on Green Bamboo. We were a little concerned that we would only get to cook one dish per person but liked that we could choose from a big selection....

I'm not sure how much I can add, all the reviews before pretty much say everything. This was a fantastic experience, I would really recommend to everybody! We got picked up from hotel & dropped at the market where we then bought all the ingredients for the day. Afterwards you go for a coffee in the market before going to... More

After reading the other reviews for Van's cooking class we were not disappointed! From our first email Van was friendly and helpful, organizing our pickup from our hotel and meeting us at the markets to go shopping. She took a group of 12 tourists right through the markets, explaining different things as we went. She was super accommodating for two... More

This was by far the highlight of my trip to Hoi An. Van has cornered the market here for an operation which is both fun and professional. For $45 I think this is a bargain to be honest. Collected from your hotel, shown all around the food markets to buy the ingredients for the day followed by a brief coffee... More

Chef Van was amazing. Good food. Clear English. We ate and cooked all day and never got bored. She keeps things funny and light but you learn a lot.

I have participated in cooking classes all over Southeast Asia and can say definitely that this one was the best! Group of 13 led by the engaging and very knowledgeable Miss Van began with market tour to purchase ingredients for 13 different dishes. I assumed I would cook my own meal but soon realized every person would have all 13... More

I was so pleased to participate in Van's class. She was a great host, impressively nailing everyone's name after the first round of intros and putting us all at ease immediately. Van's joy and playfulness in food and life are deliciously infectious. Van took us to the market, where she shared a lot of great information and it is clear... More

We had a great day cooking at this cooking class. We got picked up at 8am, got to the market at 9 and finished cooking and eating at 15:45. The market bit was ok, you see how the locals buy stuff everyday fresh of the market, this makes it pretty noisy and busy for a group of 13 foreigners to... More

I don't have much to add to the rave reviews, but I will underscore what a great job Van does of explaining while shepherding a crowd (our class was 13 people) through a local market. She helped individuals find esoteric cooking implements while explaining the benefits of a female vs male pig when buying pork belly. I had believed the... More
