“The Art of Simple Cooking”
Vietnamese cuisine holds the prestigious title of the 3rd healthiest in the world, as recognized by CNN. It has gained fame for its
delectable dishes, abundant in fresh vegetables and tantalizing dipping sauces. The foundation of Vietnamese flavors is built upon
the five essential elements: sour, sweet, bitter, salty, and spicy. Spanning nearly 2000 kilometers from north to south, Vietnam
boasts one of the world’s most diverse culinary traditions, yet much of it remains undiscovered by the public. It’s entirely
possible to savor a different meal each day for an entire month without repeating any dish.
In this class, we will delve into the art of preparing iconic, straightforward home-cooked meals that
form the daily culinary tapestry of the Vietnamese people. We’ll also unravel the secrets of mastering the
soul of Vietnamese cuisine: the dipping sauces. Together, we’ll embark on a journey to explore the culture,
proudly affirming that Vietnam is the Italy of the East.
WHAT YOU WILL DO
Experience a delightful welcome tasting featuring finest homemade Vietnamese delights, perfect for a
morning pick-me-up or a delightful evening aperitif. You will then dive into the world of authentic
