Vietnamese Cooking Class

Master Vietnamese clay pot recipes and create melt in the mouth dishes with Asian spices and fresh and fragrant ingredients. Learn to make crunchy, vibrant summer rolls and throw together zingy, Vietnamese salads in a flash.

With its emphasis on fresh ingredients and hearty yet light meals, Vietnamese cooking has been heralded one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. It is also one of the most sensory. Packed with hoisin, sesame and chilli flavours, this Vietnamese cooking class is full of fragrance and crunch and will involve all of your tastebuds with fiery sweet-sour-salty character.

From Vietnamese street food to energising salads

We look deeper into the magical array of ingredients and techniques required to create truly inspiring Vietnamese dishes, from simple street food to elaborate clay pot meals.

You’ll learn how to recreate fragrant seafood soups (full day class only) and master vibrant summer roll recipes you can experiment with and recreate at home time and time again.

Then there’s our famous sticky caramelised clay pot dish which delights foodies time and again. We’ve got something for everyone.


My partner bought me the course as a gift and I choose to do the full day Vietnamese course. It’s very hard to fault this fantastic cooking experience; very friendly and laid back. Great tuition and great fun.

You get to eat the food you make with lashings of excellent wine. All recipes are emailed to you in detail so very easy to replicate at home.

I would definitely go back to do another of the many courses available.

Easily adapted to be vegetarian friendly and gluten free.

Vietnamese food is often meat-free and if not is easily adapted to be, making this course great for vegetarians and meat-lovers alike.

Sample menu

  • Fresh Summer rolls with prawns and dipping sauce
  • Vietnamese salad with green papaya
  • Prawn and coconut soup with lime and chilli (full day only)
  • Sticky caramelised chicken in a clay pot served with soy wilted greens with sesame and rice. 

Fantastic day out and social event !

After attending the mid-week summer specials course back in July this year, I booked the Vietnamese course for myself and work colleagues, it didn't disappoint the second time around. This course was really interesting and we made some great food using some strange (but good) ingredients. The venue is great and Rachel (the chef) was a fantastic teacher and cook. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or go back.

Fantastic evening

We booked a private Vietnamese cooking class for eight of us. We all LOVED it! Had a fantastic time. We opted for the Prosecco reception first, so had a lovely half hour drinking and catching up with friends. Then went down to the very ambient and well appointment cooking space where all the equipment was laid out and we cooked in pairs, sharing a wok. John and Emily gave the cooking instructions. They were really cool and knowledgeable and friendly. We got the main in the oven, made a starter, sat down to eat that while the main cooked. All the while, drinking and chatting (nice wine) and then cooked the vegetable sides and the main was ready. The food was excellent (if I'm allowed to say that?!) The recipes were very doable but still impressive. We finished up with teas and coffees. A very enjoyable way to spend 3.5 hours - friends, new friends, a meal and a new set of skills. Highly recomme
