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

We had a fantastic day with a lot of amazing food, it definitely deserves more than 5 points!!! Van is superfriendly and funny, we loved the authentic visit on the market in the morning and of course the cooking together. Just make sure you don't eat breakfast, you'll eat a lot!!=) 100% recomendation, best cooking class ever!!!

Best cooking class I have ever done. Class includes pick up from your hotel, shopping at the local market and then cooking, eating, cooking, eating - and prawn head vodka shots in between! It is really a great day with each person choosing a dish from Van's extensive menu list. A full class means you get to cook 12 dishes.... More

Really enjoyable day with Van and her team. We had an informative trip around the (semi-submerged!) market, buying the ingredients before reaching the cookery school. The only delay was when we were left in a coffee shop whilst Van went off to find fresh prawns. Once at the school, Van's clear instructions enabled all of us to create a great... More

Van was outstanding. Her instuction and preperation for the class was excellent. She helped all her students, young and old, to sucessfully prep and cook the dish they chose. We were picked up at our hotel and headed off to the local market with the other students to learn about the food we were cooking and to choose our items.... More
