We booked this cooking class as it was recommended by a friend and had great fun. Vina was our teacher and was very entertaining as well as a great teacher. Food was delicious and w look forward to trying to recreate the menu at home. This was definitely a highlight of our time in Hoi An. Thanks Vina.

We had a great morning at the Gioan cooking school...and learned lots too! Having compared notes with people who had been to other cookery schools in Hoi An, Gioan is definitely the most fun and educational. Back in the UK for a week now, and we've already cooked some of the dishes that we learned from the girls!

From the market visit to the smart staging of meals to keep us eating throughout the class, we loved everything about it. My wife and I learned several new techniques and the food was delicious. Even bought the cookbook. We prepared shrimp/pork pancake, beef pho, fish wrapped in banana, and lemongrass chili chicken. The interaction with the teachers and class... More

While in Hoi An with my partner, we decided to join a cooking lesson but were confused by the large selection. We Gioan was a little bit more out of the way than some, but they let you choose your own dishes from a vast selection, rather than having set dishes as with the other places we checked.
