Cookery Class in the Garden Houses of Hue

The old capital of Hue is renowned as the home of imperial cuisine. Try your hand at cooking some at one of the city's beautiful garden houses.

Formerly the capital of Vietnam and the city of the Nguyen emperors, Hue has a heritage that is reflected in the city's unique cuisine. Where better to learn how to prepare delicious Hue recipes than in the most elegant of settings: at one of Hue's famous garden houses? Set in a lush garden near the citadel, Y Thao is a charming ancient house filled with antiques dating back to imperial era.

The day kicks off with a visit to Hue's Dong Ba Market, where Mrs Cuc, the owner of the house, will show you some local specialities and teach you how to choose ingredients. Heading back to Y Thao you'll start your exclusive cooking class, in which you will learn how to prepare a 'royal' Hue meal. You will prepare four or five courses, ranging from traditional Vietnamese spring rolls to a delicious banana leaf salad. Most importantly, of course, you will conclude by eating them.
