The Morning Glory cooking school has earned well-deserved praise over the years for its classes. Owner and founder Ms Trinh Diem Vy is a third generation chef and native of Hoi An and has created diverse cooking class programs to suit all levels.
Ms Vy's zeal for recreating street food favourites in the Morning Glory cooking school is driven by a personal desire to keep local recipes alive.
There are two levels of class. A Beginners/intermediate and an Advanced Class
Beginners & Intermediate
Become more familiar with the art of Vietnamese cooking with a start to finish cooking course. This 4-hour tour combines a market tour, an overview of ingredients common in Vietnamese food, and a hands-on cooking class that ends with each participant making their own multi course meal.
It’s a great way to see all the nooks and crannies of a Vietnamese market and understand the secrets behind Vietnamese cooking. This is perfect for beginners or intermediate levels with two options offered.
The morning begins with a 1-hour tour of Hoi An’s food market where you will learn how to select the freshest ingredients. Return to Morning Glory, where a lovely air-conditioned room with individual cooking stations is used for the cooking class.
Here each dish is made step by step as you follow along. The staff are on hand to offer additional assistance for beginners or those who might need some extra help.
The class not only covers cooking techniques, but also herbal remedies, and tricks to using Vietnamese vegetable graters and knives. All efforts are rewarded with the lunch that you have made for yourself!
