Insider Experience: Salt Rice with a Culinary Master

Enjoy a unique gastronomy experience with a culinary master in Hue.

Hue is a culinary hotspot in Vietnam and home to the nation's Royal cuisine. For something truly unique we recommend having a lunch experience with salt rice (Com Muoi) under the instruction from a culinary master while listening to her life and passion for cooking.

Rice and salt; a simple contrast that gave birth to a whole new cuisine and the salt rice of Hue city is truly a feast for the wealthy. It is processed from only rice and salt but the rice must be of the finest quality and the salt processed and prepared by sophisticated and lengthy methods. Com Muoi is traditionally only prepared on special days for Hue families, or when they welcome special guests. Hue households take enormous effort in preparing this unique meal with around 10 salt dishes cooked with different flavours. Rice and salt, familiar and simple ingredients for any Vietnamese family, are subjected to culinary alchemy enabling you to experience a completely new side of this ancient city.
