Met up the driver at the lobby of the hotel, we then take a short drive through the local countryside to Tra Que Village where the home of our host, Mr Tuan is located. Then we walk through the market gardens where local farmers work their fields using the traditional methods of hundreds of years ago – no electrical machinery here. We pick fresh vegetables and herbal for our cooking lesson later, before trying a special herbal drink at a local home.
Arriving at Tra Que’s Family House we have a chance to freshen up before beginning our class. Working together with our Family COOKER we learn the traditional ways of preparing and cooking Vietnamese food from scratch. Using the freshest ingredients and traditional Vietnamese utensils (still in use today) we cook 4 famous dishes. The cooker will explain and help you to understand the real Vietnamese cuisine with his family’s recipes, how to use the tradition of using natural foods and drinks as home medicine.
After the class we sit down and a chance to savour the dishes we have prepared.
