Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Insider Experience: Home Cooking With Chef Ai

Prepare and dine on authentic North Vietnamese cuisine during a morning of culinary and cultural discovery in the kitchen of Chef Ai's family home.

Hanoi gastronomy and cuisine have grown to become known as one of the best in the world and trying your hands at uncovering the secrets of this mouth-watering cuisine with a cooking class when visiting the capital is a real highlight.

However, rather than taking a class in a restaurant or classroom, we take you to a locally renowned chef's family home. Together your will head to the neighbourhoods wet market, a short walk from her house where she will guide you through the fresh produce on offer. Armed with the necessary ingredients for the day, return to her home where you join her in the kitchen for a hands cook lesson as she shares the secrets behind North Vietnam's most popular foods. And once ready, sit down and feast on the home cooked meal that you have created!
