Had an amazing time and cooked the best springrolls I’ve ever made! Also love that you can buy individual ingredients used to take back home like the special springroll wrappers.

Private vietnamese cooking class!
Mar. 2020
The cooking class was an amazing experience. We visited the market and got an introduction in vegetables & spices and did the shopping for our menu. We had friendly cooking teacher, who was patient and made our experience even more wonderful. We would totally recommend this tour and prepared some dishes of our menu at home.

Vina is the best.
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We loved our time here. She is flirty, singing and joyous. The best part about this place is that you get to choose which menu item you'd like to learn to cook. They also offer the flexibility to start at a time that works best for you and your group. They have a two-person minimum, however the timing gives you the ability work around a not so predictable travel schedule. $40US at the door. It's more if you book through a service (middle-man). 3.5 hours with a trip to the market to start. VERY VERY CLEAN.

Delicious, Informative, Fun!!!!
Mar. 2020
My adult son and I shared an evening of cooking today with Vina. Time in the market was great....learned lots in a short time. Road bikes and there were no helmets. Suggest taking your own helmet if you want to protect your priceless brain. I could have spent three hours with Vina just listening to her share her passion surrounding the foods including herbs, noodles, spices, vegetables, meat, tofu and beyond. Her efficiency in the kitchen was impressive--she was able to instruct, listen to and answer questions, guide when needed. The rewards of our work were delicious and I am very excited about sharing new recipes with friends and families when I return to the States.

Gioan cooking class is the best!
Mar. 2020 • Couples
What a great way to discover more about Vietnamese food. Our 3 hour class wasn’t just enlightening, it was entertaining, too. Vina is a real star - charming, funny and obviously a talented cook. She took us to the local market where we saw the amazing produce on offer. Once we’d picked our ingredients, it was back to the kitchen to bring our menu to life. Under her guidance we cooked Pho, Banh Xeo pancakes, chicken chilli lemongrass, fresh spring rolls and chilli paste. All tasted great. We took away the recipes and some very happy memories. And all this on Vina’s birthday. We hope she enjoyed it as much as we did

Cooking class at Gioan Cooking School in Hoi An
Mar. 2020 • Couples
My wife and I booked a last minute couples cooking class this evening. We selected 4 dishes to make from a list of 32. On arrival, our teacher, Vina, had us hop on bicycles for a short ride to the market where purchased a few items for dinner and gave us a tour of what was on offer, how to chose produce, etc. A lot of her focus was on the traditional health benefits of what we est.

We prepared the dishes in a well-stocked kitchen and ate a traditional meal shortly thereafter. We feel certain that we will be able to replicate these dishes at home, especially following the recipes we were given as well as the tips Vina provided.

All in all, if you are looking for a fun and entertaining introduction to local Hoi An cooking, check out Gioan! They offer any number of classes through the day into the evening and the on-line booking and emailing is amazingly prompt and in excellent English.

Vina was very funny, offered many tips and tricks and provided a fitting end to our last day in Hoi An. Though we did not stay there, the pool looked inviting and it would be tempting to plan a foodie Homestay vacation without leaving the building ( they have a new apartment to let on- site).

Enjoy!

A Tasty Evening at Gioan Cookery
Feb. 2020 • Friends
I took an evening class with two friends and we had a fantastic time with Hanh. After a swift trip to the local (and I mean locals!) market by bicycle, we split into intimate groups. Hanh used an excellent mix of direct communication and warm, friendly hospitality. We had a lot of fun with her and easily made vegetarian versions of classic dishes. I LOVED that we could choose our own menu (each group, not each individual person). This made it possible to try some unique local dishes instead of making more spring rolls (even though they are delicious). The kitchen was clean and modern and their process was very smooth as we progressed through each dish. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone.

Best cooking class in Hoi An!
We had an excellent cooking class. Vina picked us up from our hotel and we went to the market together. She told us a lot about all the fruit and vegetables in Vietnam.
You can choose your own menu, which is absolutely great. We had Pho (vegetarian), Shrimp in batter, Fish in banana leaf and Hoi An banana in coconut milk. All of them were so good, super fresh ingredients, and we were so stuffed afterwards. Vina is lovely, very funny and a great chef. She definitely makes you feel at home. Would highly recommend her cooking class!

She also has a very nice hotel, which just opened. Don’t miss this place when you’re in Hoi An!

Awesome, authentic cooking class
Feb. 2020
We struggled to decide which cooking class to take in Hoi An because there are so many! However, Gioan was the only class we found that would teach you how to make Bun Thit Nuong and Bun Cha - 2 of our favorite dishes! Because they are more complicated to make, no other schools will teach you. The ladies made our class so fun, and we had a blast! More importantly, we learned to make AUTHENTIC food from Vietnam. The instructor also had a vast knowledge of cooking and ingredients - which is not always the case with other places. Do not hesitate to book them if you are looking for an authentic culinary experience!
