Hi,

Can you recommend any cook class in Hanoi?
How much approximately the prices are?

I see 2 places in Hanoi that are highly recommended, but I haven't been to either one. You can read the reviews at the Hanoi Expat website.

Hello,
I have done quite a bit of research into this. Look at this site:

and specifically here, this is the one I am going to do:

Posted from within Vietnam.

The Red Bridge one looks good and is cheap, but it's not in Hanoi - it's in Hoi An. In Hanoi , at the two places Daawgon mentioned, you will be paying at least $40 for a 1/2 day course, around $50 if you want to do a market visit.

Koto also runs an evening cookery course on Mondays 6-8.30pm, $35. They have a website but it's not very easy to navigate and I couldn't find anything about the course on there but the contact number is 0437470337. Highway 4 do an evening course as well - www.highway4.com.

I haven't done any - I looked into it when a friend was visiting but decided to do a course in Sapa instead. It was cheaper!

We're signed up to do the Hidden Hanoi class + market tour in December. It's $100 for two, quite expensive, but we figure this may be our one opportunity. I'll post some feedback when we return.

Thx a lot!
Cooking class seems to be much cheaper in Sapa! I think we 'll decide for
http://www.saparooms.com/cooking.html . It's only 30$ per person ;-)

If you are in Hoi An I would highly recommend red bridge. We paid ~$22/pp which was a half day course including a market tour. Definitely worth it.

I did the Sapa Rooms one mentioned above. If you already do a bit of asian cooking you won't learn an awful lot (same for most courses I think) but the experience is worth it - the setting is amazing!
