Vietnamese Chef

An experienced chef and Hanoi local, let me introduce you to the wonders of Hanoi food and culture





We arranged our cooking class at the last minute and Chef Duyen was very accommodating and able to arrange for us to make the menu we asked for. It was great to learn about the ingredients at the market and then head back to her kitchen to begin making a feast! Chef Duyen was informative, friendly and a great teacher. She guided us carefully through the cooking process and we left with enough skills and knowledge to be able to attempt the dishes when we return home. The food was absolutely delicious. One of our best experiences during our time in Vietnam. Highly recommended :)




That was really a great experience!!!! I booked this tour because I heard about it in a guide, that was a great advice. The colours and smells of local market is a unique experience you can enjoy as a local. Th cooking part was excellent as well, Chef Duyen is patient and whatever your cooking level is, she will adapt to what you can do with good advice. You will cook a whole vietnamese meal in a relaxed ambiance of her home, with good equipment. Thanks again for this wonderful half day! Boris, France, 08/2018




I had a fantastic Friday afternoon with Duyen. We toured a local market wherein I learned about different foods and how the market vendors operate to the utmost freshness. After which, we cooked up a 6 course feast... Duyen was kind, patient, and a great teacher. The food was phenomenal and I cannot wait to try making the recipes on my own. Would highly recommend as a MUST experience if visiting Hanoi.
