Y Thao Garden Restaurant, Hue

Y Thao Garden Restaurant Cooking Course

Located near the ancient citadel in a peaceful suburb of Hue the Y Thao cooking school is a truly unique way to learn more about Vietnamese cuisine and of course lend a hand in creating a culinary masterpiece.

The school specializes in Hue's 'Royal Meal', an exclusive art of food preparation and special dishes. You prepare your meal in a beautiful Chinese pagoda with the assistance of the excellent chef. The meal you prepare will usually consist of four to five courses ranging from traditional Vietnamese spring rolls to the interesting and extremely delicious banana leaf salad.

After about two hours of food preparation you will have the opportunity to eat what you have created. We recommend a morning class which enables you to eat lunch in the lovely garden pagoda.
