A good appetite is a great excuse for exploring and discovering a city like Ho Chi Minh City. Walk, visit, enjoy, and be guided by an experienced chef—this is what the Saigon Cooking Class by Hoa Tuc offers. By taxi or on the back of a scooter, the tour begins with a visit to a local market, followed by the discovery of the best street vendors and favourite ‘canteens', and a tasting of Vietnamese specialties. The cooking classes also begin with a trip to the market led by the chef to choose the ingredients needed to prepare a meal of four dishes.
Spices, fresh herbs, and fruits and vegetables from around the country make up the recipes that the chef will help you develop. Specialties such as mustard leaves rolled with crunchy vegetables and shrimp or spicy beef salad with kumquat, lemongrass, and aubergines—all that remains is for you to enjoy a ‘Tra Da': the must-try iced green tea served throughout Vietnam.
