Meet Diep (pronounced "Yeep") who lives with her husband and family in a typical, modest family home in Danang. Hosting with Traveling Spoon is a way for Diep to share her passion for her country’s culture, tradition and cuisine with her guests. She looks forward to introducing Vietnamese home cooking to you!
Join Diep and her mother Loc in the kitchen to learn how to prepare 2-3 dishes in a cooking demonstration. Because Diep has a small home and kitchen, your preparation of the meal may be limited but Diep will do her best to give you some hands-on experience and teach you to prepare her family recipes. The cooking experience will last about an hour before you gather with the family to enjoy the meal together. Diep and her mother may prepare some of your dishes in advance.
Enjoy home-style central Vietnamese dishes with Diep and her family. Your meal will consist of 3-5 dishes, including a soup like canh chua ca (sour fish soup) or a vegetable soup, a main dish of meat or seafood (like her mother’s muc nhoi thit, stuffed squid), stuffed tofu, stuffed bitter melon, and fresh vegetable dishes such as stir-fried morning glory or chayote, crispy tofu in tomato-egg sauce, and rice. End your meal with fresh, seasonal fruit and tea. The menu will vary based on the season.
Leave with new friends, new recipes, and lifelong memories.
Please note, this is not a professional cooking class, rather this experience is a visit into an authentic, local home to meet a local person and share the culture and cuisine together.
