In recent years, Vietnam is regarded as the most preferable destination of foreign tourists who plan to enjoy memorable culinary holiday. Vietnam cuisine is unique, distinctive and varies deeply from region to region.

Hue, once the imperial capital of the country, is a bustling city still renowned for its royal cuisine. It is said that of the thousands of dishes in Vietnam, nearly all originated in the famous city — including favorites like the popular Bun Bo Hue soup and the Banh Khoai ‘pancake’.

On this tour, you’ll learn to cook authentic Vietnamese food at the ancient house of Hue, a traditional home maintained for generations by a local family. Amidst urbanization and new building structures, this house offers a taste of Hue’s fascinating past — which the delightful house owner will share with you on arrival.

This enriching experience starts with a cyclo (three-wheel bicycle taxi) ride from your hotel to the local market. Vietnamese food is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients and healthy reliance on herbs and vegetables, and you’ll learn how each is used in royal cuisine as you mingle with the locals and bargain for the best price.

Back at the ancient house, your instructor – a master chef whose ancestors cooked for the Royals years ago – will share stories of Hue’s ancient culinary times as you create a variety of fresh and savory dishes.

As you dine on your impressive spread of foods, originally prepared for the emperor and his retinue, you’ll feel as if you’re truly a part of Hue’s culinary history — and maybe even a bit ‘royal’.
