Travel: Saigon Cooking Class by Hoa Tuc

Saigon Cooking Class building

One of the highlights of my Vietnam trip a couple of months ago was joining a cooking class by Saigon Cooking Class in Ho Chi Minh City. You have two options to choose from – A half-day gourmet tour where your chef will guide you through the Ben Thanh market to purchase necessary ingredients for cooking. Then head back to the restaurant for your class. The other option is skipping the market tour and just join with the cooking class.

In a cozy and fun atmosphere, the participants will be cooking together following the chef’s step by step instructions.

Everyone enjoyed prepping a tasty 4 meal course without using any artificial flavors.
