At Thuan Tinh Island Cooking Class, we offer you something completely unique. Meeting in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town of Hôi An, we embark on our Culinary Adventure. First, a trip to the market to purchase all fresh ingredients. Then, we board our river boat for a relaxing 40 minute ride to Thuan Tinh Island, which is recognized by Hoi An as an official ecological zone.
To visit the Local Village, we take a row boat ride through the water coconut trees. We then walk through the gardens to our open-air cooking class overlooking the water coconut trees and river. Our chefs will show you how to make Vietnamese food while you enjoy the cool breeze and peaceful setting.
Now it's time to COOK!!
Our chefs have prepared a 4 course cooking class of traditional Vietnamese dishes. They will demonstrate how to prepare them, and then it's your turn-you prepare your own tasty Vietnamese lunch!! We start with a homemade Passion fruit Juice soda to whet your appetite
