Be A Vietnam Master Chef At Grain Studio (SIC) - Half Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

Today’s tour will begin at either 09:00 or 13:00. Bring an appetite, as today’s adventure is one worth savouring! Take a walk through downtown Ho Chi Minh City to GRAIN Studio, GRAIN is a modern cooking studio that aims to enrich the culinary nuances of fine Vietnamese cuisine.

Don an apron, enter a well-stocked ‘market pantry’ to select fresh ingredients then head to a fully-equipped cooking station to start cooking. The expert chef will then provide step-by-step instructions for how each dish is made. Use traditional methods to make tangy sauces, discover secret tricks to preparing fresh herbs and learn about Vietnam’s culinary heritage.

Once the dishes are ready, sit down and enjoy the fresh flavours of gourmet Vietnamese cuisine. End the meal with an indulgent dessert like silky coconut cream caramel with fresh tropical fruit accompanied by Vietnamese tea or coffee. Walk off the meal with a stroll back to the hotel where the culinary adventure comes to an end.  (L)
