What you can expect

Passionate about Vietnamese cuisine? Wanna learn how to make mouth-watering popular delicacies? If your answer to those two questions is "Yes!", then this experience is for you!

I want to invite you to my home, where my family will welcome you with open arms. Spend a day with us where you will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the local daily life.
Help my mom cook and she'll teach you a thing or two about Vietnamese food. But first, let's go to the market!

Visit a fresh market, get all the ingredients needed for your cooking experience, learn how to bargain and see the local vendors in action. I'll help you with tons of trick & tips to make your visit to the market feel truly local.

Ready to awaken the chef within yourself? Follow my mom's directions and you'll cook by yourself an authentic local dish. Once everything is cooked, let's have a nice family dinner together. Enjoy what you cooked plus other local dishes like Bun Cha, spring rolls & pho.

My family and I can't wait for you to join us! Send me a message if you have any special requests and I will create an offer just for you.

Frankly, I am not cut out for 9-5 office work. I prefer being outside, talking to people and socializing (as a typical pisces). Joining hospitality and tourism has made my wish come true. I have been in this industry in Hanoi for 4+ years and (to some extent) understood its potentials and shortcomings. The locals, who have maintained and run invaluable social quintessence, are not receiving what they deserve. I appreciate ''Slow food'' culture and sustainable tourism, in which people can travel with awareness and responsiblity to promote local values. That's the reason I team up with my friends to create ''Hanoi Nom Nom'' team ,with view of bringing all the positive insights of Hanoi to travellers. We have assisted more than 1000 guests from at least 50 countries and territories. Find out more at : .Thank you for visiting Hanoi. Bon voyage :) !!!"
