Lan Anh ia a friendly, warm, passionate home cook who delights in sharing her family recipes with guests. Lan Anh lives with her two children and mother in a typical, modest family home in Ho Chi Minh City. She comes from a long line of excellent cooks and is dedicated to exclusively using all natural ingredients. You can expect a lovingly cooked meal prepared from scratch from family recipes. Originally from Northern Vietnam, Lan Anh will teach travelers the simplicity and beauty of her favorite northern and central-Vietnamese dishes. The meal might include a variety of typical street food dishes such as pho ga (aromatic chicken noodle soup with fresh herbs), bun ca (turmeric-seasoned fish served in broth with fresh vermicelli noodles and herbs), and fresh seasonal salads with mango, pomelo, or avocado. For dessert Lan Anh typically serves her delightful nep cam (purple sticky rice with yogurt). Please note that, as this is an experience in a family home, Lan Anh's teenage children might join at the dining table depending on the time of day (they can't resist their mother's cooking!). If you book a cooking experience, travelers can expect to learn two to three traditional Vietnamese dishes in Lan Anh's modest home kitchen. Lan Anh also offers a market tour of Tan Son Nhat market, a true local's wet market that sells everything from fresh seafood (which you can buy live and have filleted in front of your eyes) to a variety of Vietnamese kitchen tools and utensils. Travelers will meet at Lan Anh's home before heading to the market.
Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is often referred to as Vietnam?s jewel and the Pearl of the Orient. Located in south Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City is the country?s largest city, with more than six million people and over one million motorbikes. Under the current regime the city is once more being rebuilt. Whole blocks are disappearing, being replaced by concrete, steel and glass structures. Central Saigon, which is still the official name for the city center, shows evidence of the French colonial city, with wide, tree-lined boulevards, sidewalk caf?s and elegant French architecture. The city is divided into two sections: Saigon, the municipal and historical district, and Cholon (Chinatown), where the entrepreneurial talent and private funds are concentrated. Cholon appears to be the most populated and in general the most vigorous part of Ho Chi Minh City. It is well worth a visit for its bustle and activity and its pagodas, which are reputed to be the finest in the whole city.
