One of the best ways to learn about a new country and its culture is to explore local recipes, and there’s no better way to become well-versed with a new cuisine than to make it yourself. Here are the top five cooking classes in Ho Chi Minh City for you to learn about southern Vietnamese cuisine.
Established in 1999, Vietnam Cookery Center (VCC) has been offering Vietnamese cooking classes to tourists and locals for nearly two decades. The class takes place in what the VCC claims to be the first concrete building built in Asia, a 1930’s-era colonial building nestled in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. Their menu differs every day, but the recipes are always beautiful and tasty – plus it comes with two glasses of wine! Their standard class is priced at $37 USD and a vegetarian option is available daily.
