Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:
Most tourists come to Vietnam to experience the bustling vibes of big cities. But this online tour offers a more tranquil experience, transporting you instead to picturesque in-depth local areas of Vietnam cities. In this online cooking class, you’ll virtually visit a hidden family house located in the heart of the city. In Vietnamese culture, a meal isn’t just about the food, but about reuniting with family, and we’ll do just that as you’re welcomed into a local family’s home. We’ll start your online experience with a round of introductions, and you’ll meet your hosts: a typical Vietnamese family in a northern countryside village. Take a virtual tour of their house and mini garden, and meet the extended family. Then, it’s time to cook! Your hosts will teach you how to cook a traditional Vietnamese recipe, using ingredients that are sourced directly from the family’s garden. (Don’t worry, you should be able to find them close to home, and if not, your hosts can suggest substitutes.) In this culinary experience, you’ll learn to cook three dishes: a seasonal salad, chicken or tofu stir-fried with lemongrass and chili, and seasonal stir-fried vegetables. We’ll finish up with some fresh fruit and green tea for dessert. Your hosts are friendly guides, cooks, and gardeners, and during the experience, you’re free to ask them any questions about Vietnam and their local life. Don’t be shy! Once we’ve finished cooking, you’ll then get to enjoy what you made. And together, we’ll raise glasses of beer in cheers, the Vietnamese way! You will need: chicken (or tofu) 200g cucumber 200g 70g carrot 70g 500 g bell pepper bok choy 1/2 lime lemongrass 100-150 g chili 300 g garlic (or leek) 100-150 g turmeric 100-150 g ginger 100-150 g brown sugar 100-150 g white sugar water salt fish sauce (or alternate vegetarian sauce) fruit green tea beer (optional)
