There are 2 classes in a day from 08:30 to 12:00 & from 14:00 to 18:00. We are picked up in the lobby of the hotel then transfer to “Mai” home – The Saigon Culinary Art Center for our cooking class. During some hours, we discover the culture of Vietnamese culinary art. With our Grand Chefs, participants will entertain a “Hands-on” cooking of Vietnamese traditional dishes. Full of joy and pride, we savor our own culinary creation.
