ITINERARY BY DAY
Hoi An Cooking Class Half Day Tour
First your guide will meet you at 8:15am and pay a visit to Hoi An’s bustling market where you will experience the amazing and colorful sights as you stroll through the market with your guide, who’ll introduce you to the ingredients used in Vietnamese cuisine.
Next, board the Red Bridge boat for a leisurely 30-minute cruise along the Hoi An River to the Red Bridge Cooking School. Along the way, enjoy photo ops of local life on this scenic river.
Upon arriving at the Red Bridge Cooking School, walk through its abundant herb garden and learn about the herbs that give Vietnam’s cuisine its distinctive flavors. Then head to the school’s open-air riverside building, a beautiful and breezy location for your cooking class. The chefs demonstrate the preparation of each dish (see menu below) and help as you learn to prepare the dishes yourself. To finish the day’s lesson, which takes about two hours, observe an introduction to Vietnamese plate decoration or food carving, which is truly an art in itself.
After the class, sit down and enjoy eating the delicious meal that you have made! At the end of your culinary tour, your guide will take you back on the boat to your starting point in Hoi An.
