COOKING LESSON AND BICYCLING THROUGH THE VIETNAMESE COUNTRYSIDE

 

We will depart from Hoi An by boat to arrive on the small island on the Thu Bon River Delta, where my grandmother still lives.

While you taste some fresh fruit juice, I will describe life in the countryside, and I will take you on a visit of my family’s traditional wooden house. You will discover how, once, we worked the rice with utensils of the time. You will settle in the cool garden to make your rice cakes and participate in the cooking class.

Around the stove, you will find all of the necessary ingredients to prepare you meal. I will explain their virtues and role in Vietnamese cuisine. Together, we will prepare 4 different Vietnamese dishes with the Hoi An touch.
