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).
