Booked as a cooking class, we first visited the local market. Tracey, our guide, explained how the food was brought in fresh every day to the market. We saw many interesting ingredients ready for purchase and one lady who sold traditional celebration wares. This delightful old lady demonstrated her presentation of betel nut. Our ingredients purchased, we returned to the cooking school to make a yummy banana flower salad, learnt the trick to rolling your spring rolls so that they don't burst when frying. We also make caramelised pork and poppy seed dessert. The best part was that our cooking efforts were then lunch. This centre has a good menu and it is a lovely retreat within an easy stroll from the lake.

My wire and I attented one of Traceys Cooking Classes. Within only 4 hours we visited the local market, learned so much about local veg, herbes etc and prepared a delicious 3 course meal. Even tasting strange things like fried silk worms or fertilited eggs (not being part of our meal).

Summary: great experience you should not miss when staying in Hanoi and interested in food and local habits.

The food was great as well as the service. Try their special dishes with Vietnamese rice and also their special drinks. The price is also reasonable for the amount of food they provide. Try it out if you're visiting Hanoi.

The team helping us out were excellent. The walk to the local market was an eye opener! Taking a local cooking class helped to immediately identify the culture & focus on food. The team was helpful, fun, informed & patient.
