Cooking up a storm!!

The class was absolutely fantastic. Chef Max is incredibly knowledgable and was a great instructor. He talked us through every step of the process thoroughly, and even gave us some tips and tricks among the way for when we cook it again at home. The Market tour was interesting and again, Max explained the different types of ingredients we found and what cuts of meat we should use. The food tasted amazing!! The restaurant and kitchen have a really nice atmosphere.

A Hanoi Must Do

Chef Chris doesn’t provide cooking classes, it’s a testament to the love and passion seen in the “new” generation of Vietnamese entrepreneurs. From the attention to detail, to the messages of inspiration and well being, rounded off with just the right amount of humour and student interactions. And the food…WOW…recipes that are easy to follow with a taste that can only be described as “Umami”. I will definitely be back!
Learning about Vietnamese food and cooking

Had a great class with Chef Chris. His enthusiasm and engaging manner made our lesson fun and enjoyable even as he corrected our technique. The final meal was extremely tasty and there was so much food we had to take away our leftovers.

The cooking class is held in the Blue Butterfly restaurant, which is located in an ancient house in old Hanoi. Looking forward to trying their food next time!
Fantastic and thorough cooking class with a market visit.

We had such a great time with our host Chris, not only did we get a chance to make and eat 4 restaurant quality, delicious meals, but we also were treated to a great market tour and fantastic conversation throughout.

While this was a MASSIVE positive for us, the tour did run a bit longer than scheduled. It was great, we got more time to talk and learn as well as refine our cooking techniques.

There is definitely a couple of recipes that will be added to our home life and it was a morning that we would strongly recommend.
