KOTO is passionate about food and training so what better place than KOTO to take a

youth in Vietnam with hospitality training to transform their lives.
What will I cook?

substitutes are also available so please discuss your dietary requirements with us at the
time of booking. Recipes will be provided so you can re-create your dishes at home for
family and friends.
Vietnamese cuisine is internationally regarded for its exquisite flavours and a diversity of
dishes. Our cooking classes enable you to prepare three quintessential Vietnamese dishes
with the assistance of your cooking class teacher and KOTO trainees whilst learning more
about the culture and history of this fascinating country through the cuisine.
We offer cooking classes every day in the morning or afternoon. We just ask you book at least 24 hours in advance!
Morning: 8.30am-12.30pm (includes a tour to the local market)
If you book a morning class, our cooking class teachers will take you on a tour of the local
market. Having a tour guide explain the sights, sounds and how to use various unfamiliar
ingredients and produce will make the experience far more meaningful.
You will share the dishes you created over lunch or dinner. In addition, a complimentary soft
drink or local beer and a tropical fruit plate for dessert will be provided to each participant.
Vietnamese tea is provided during the cooking class.
