You host Lua likes to keep her menu very simple, so that it doesn't require any special tools to cook, ensuring that you can easily re-create the dishes you learn to make during this class in your own kitchen back home. You will help Lua prepare 2-3 traditional Vietnamese dishes from scratch. She will first advise you on how best to prepare the dish and then guide you step by step through the entire cooking process. She will also share all her secret cooking tips to ensure you to get the best results! After your class, you will sit down together to enjoy the meal you helped prepare. Dishes you may try are gỏi gà xé phay (chicken salad with cabbage, carrot, herbs and mixed fish sauce dressing), gà xào xả ớt OR gà chiên nước mắm (salty chicken with lemon grass and chilli OR fried chicken with mixed fish sauce) and canh chua tôm (sweet and sour prawn soup with pineapple, tomato, tamarind, other vegetables, herbs).

Itinerary Details

Operated by: Traveling Spoon, Inc

Lua, lives a dual life – during the day she works for a law firm and in the evening offers cooking classes out of her home. She is very passionate about cooking (and eating) healthy food. She also loves to travel (she has visited 13 countries and is still counting!), to practice yoga, meditation and Latin dance for a healthy mind and body. Lua has been cooking since she was 5 years old. She was often asked to help around the kitchen with small chores and that got her very curious and interested in food and cooking. She learnt most of the traditional recipes from her family and also enjoys experimenting with ingredients and flavors to create her own dishes. An experience with Lua is not just about cooking and eating home food but also spending time together to talk, share stories and exchange cultures. 

At the end of this experience, you will have learned a lot about Vietnamese culture and life through its delicious cuisine and the stories told by your welcoming host!

Lua can offer Vegetarian,Vegan, Gluten Free, Lactose-intolerant and MSG-free meals. If you would like to learn make or eat something specific, please let Lua know at the time of booking.
