Each tour is unique and eventful; taking you to local markets to learn about and select the ingredients before continuing to the kitchen.

Hoi An, Vietnam, may be well known for its preserved centuries old Chinese shop houses, but another highlight, especially for culinary enthusiasts is the Morning Glory cooking school. It has earned praise over the years for the quality of its classes, a testament to owner and third generation chef Ms. Trinh Diem Vy. The program features courses to suit all types of interested gastronomes, from beginners to advanced levels. Ms Vy's passion for recreating Vietnamese cuisine, especially street food, stems from her desire to keep family recipes alive through the years.

“Extend your knowledge and understanding of Asia by trying your hand at its cuisine with one of Exotissimo’s full day culinary school experiences,” commented Louise Nathan, Product and Marketing Manager at Exotissimo Travel. “Each tour is quite unique and eventful; taking you to local markets to learn about and select the ingredients before continuing to the kitchen and creating some masterpieces under the guidance of a trained chef.”

After discovering the secrets behind Khmer cuisine at a market, embark on a half-day course designed by the Paul Dubrule School of Hotel and Tourism in Siem Reap. Classes here also greatly benefit the community as high-quality hospitality training is directly given to underprivileged Cambodians.

Sushi is strongly linked to Japanese cuisine. The food, itself made of cooked rice is combined with nori (seaweed) and a host of other ingredients, the most popular of which is fish. While in Tokyo, travelers can take a guided tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market, the largest wholesale seafood marketplace in the world before then buying the ingredients for a sushi making lesson. Guests are then taken to a local home for lessons on how to create sushi by Ms. Kuniko Kikuchi, a culinary advisor specializing in healthy food.
