He taught me politely, who is not good at English or Vietnamese, and taught me various knowledge in more detail than Japanese cooking classes. Especially, collecting herbs and vegetables in the field is an experience that can not be done anywhere else, so please do it. I want you to see it! There are many vegetables and herbs that I have never seen, and I used them well in cooking. You can eat everything you make and it is recommended with a very good plan!

It started in the morning, so it was a fulfilling day!

It starts with picking the herbs used for cooking on the farm. It's a lot of fun because it explains the herbs carefully. The dishes that will teach you are simple and easy, but 4 delicious dishes! The chef will also teach you gently and politely, so even beginners can cook! It's fun to interact with participants from various countries, so it may be recommended for those who are not good at eating alone while traveling alone. Eat the food we made together! It was a very rich morning.

What a great day we had in the countryside - we picked fresh herbs and veges from the organic gardens to use for the delicious, and oh-so-simple recipes we made for a sumptuous lunch! If you love cooking and want a few great Vietnamese recipes- as well as an opportunity to meet wonderful, like- minded people- this is a must do! Thank you all!
