Bay Mau Cooking School

At Bay Mau Eco Cooking Class, we offer you something completely unique. After picking you up at your hotel in Hoi An, we will begin our adventure in the Ancient Quarter. First, a stroll through the Central market to purchase all fresh ingredients for the class. Then, we board our river basket boat for a relaxing 30-minute ride on the Thu Bon river to Bay Mau Coconut Forest, which is recognized by the Province as an official ecological zone.
We then walk through the vegetable fields to our teaching kitchen overlooking the water coconut trees and rows of vegetables. Finally, we will show you 4 classic Vietnamese dishes while you enjoy the cool breeze and the peaceful setting of the countryside.

Now it's time to COOK!!

Vietnamese cuisine has a number of popular dishes from North to South with each region having their own signature dishes. At Bay Mau Cooking Class, we follow the menu created by Ms. Sinh and Thuan Tinh Island Chef/founder to give you a selection of appetizers, main dish and soup that portrays Vietnamese cuisine from all three main regions: Banh Xeo from the Central region (prepared Hoi An style), banana flower salad, Pho Bo cooked Ha Noi style (i.e. without sugar). And also, Goi Cuon Tom, or prawn spring rolls (where we will avoid 4-5 common mistakes so yours will be delicious).
Each dish is demonstrated first, then it's YOUR turn to replicate at your individual cooking station and make your own delicious Vietnamese appetizer. Then on to the next appetizer or main.
