Hanoi Cooking Class
Many visitors come to Hanoi to enjoy the fabulous food on offer in the city. From the Michelin starred restaurant to the humble local bistro, Vietnam food has something for every taste and wallet too. For some, a fascination with Vietnam cuisine is sparked and rather than take home just memories of good food or a culinary souvenir, they desire a more substantial memento of their stay. For gastronomes like these, a cooking class in Hanoi is a great way to take a little of Hanoi home with them. Choosing a cooking class in Hanoi might not seem easy, with so many courses on offer. At Madam Yen, however, we think our approach gives our traveller a unique experience of cooking in Hanoi.

We at Madam Yen like to give our traveller a better understanding of Vietnam food and its place in the development of Vietnam culture. Our cooking class in Hanoi begins in the food market, where our traveller learn to select the best produce available. These freshest of in season ingredients then form the basis of our menu for the day. Back in the kitchen, the cooking begins.
Learning new skills at our cooking class in Hanoi
Learning to buy the right ingredients is one cornerstone of good Hanoi cooking and another is developing basic cooking skills. Each of our courses teaches some of the same techniques that every Vietnam chef must master to achieve professional certification. Our cooking class in Hanoi also features a teaching technique which is unique to Madam Yen and helps our traveller learn more quickly and retain the knowledge they gain. Our chef teachers are informal and relaxed and spend the day talking about the various ingredients and dishes and the history that led to their appearance on our plates.
A cultured cooking class in Hanoi
We passionately believe that the best way to understand a nation’s culture is to understand the food that it eats and throughout our day we share our thoughts on the history and people that have shaped our cuisine. Our cooking class in Hanoi then concludes as we enjoy the three course meal that we have prepared, accompanied by matching wines. As we enjoy our food, we continue with discussions around the table on Vietnam culture and food.
