Day 05: Cooking Class at Red Bridge Cooking School, Hoi An ( Breakfast included )
From the 16th to 18th centuries, Hoi An was a thriving international commercial port for Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab traders. These people came primarily to trade in the high-grade silk, which is still produced in the area, as well as ceramics. Today, Hoi An is a quaint riverside town, popular with tourists for its eclectic architecture, tailor’s shops, and numerous cafes. Some of the buildings in the narrow streets have remained unchanged for more than a century.
Visit Hoi An’s colourful market, and experience the amazing sights, sounds and aromas. We will have the opportunity to interact with the local vendors and learn about all the ingredients to be used in the cooking class later in the morning. We will then board the Red Bridge boat for a leisurely cruise along the Hoi An River to the Red Bridge Cooking School. This is a chance to view local river life, so make sure your camera is handy. On arrival, we explore the cooking school’s herb garden, before learning about some of Hoi An’s and Vietnam’s well-known dishes. The cooking lesson runs for about 2 hours – the Red Bridge chefs first demonstrate each dish before we prepare the same dish ourselves. Included in the class is a brief introduction to Vietnamese food carving. After the class, we sit down and eat what we have created – delicious!
Bring your swimsuit as after the cooking tour has finished. You can relax and enjoy free use of the 20-metre swimming pool. Towels and showers are provided for your convenience.
