    Hello! I really enjoyed this cooking class which brought together different aspects of Vietnam. We started by pick up at hotel, then we were dropped off at Hoi An market to meet host and chef, Be! Be was an amazing chef with great sense of humour ?. She took us to a stall and explained the spices we would be using in the class, I loved this explanation and went back the next day to buy some of the spices she recommended so we can recreate the dish at home. We then went the scenic route to the cooking class, first the boat ride for 30 minutes, then the roundboat for ten minutes, then the cart ride for 5 minutes! We were greeted with a massage which was really good, somewhat surreal but they were so good and it was so nice arrival experience. Then we began the cooking class, awesome to learn about food decoration creating and dishes, we all agreed we would be able to recreate the curry dish at home. Class finish we are dropped off at homestay or convenient point, overall such great hospitality and experience of Vietnamese cuisine and cooking style.
