When the cooking class happens?

Traditional Vietnamese dishes you’ll learn to cook

The dish you will learn to cook during the cooking class on the Halong Bay cruise is either fresh spring rolls or deep-fried rolls. These dishes are among the most typical and famous in Vietnam, representing the freshness and flavors of the country’s cuisine.

Fresh spring rolls, also known as summer rolls, are made with rice paper wrappers filled with a variety of ingredients such as shrimp, vegetables, and herbs. The combination of textures and flavors creates a refreshing and healthy dish that is perfect for warm weather.

Deep-fried rolls, on the other hand, are crispy and savory. Similar to spring rolls, they are filled with a mixture of ingredients, including meat and vegetables, and then deep-fried until golden brown.

  • Eggs are commonly used in Vietnamese cuisine, adding richness and depth to various dishes.
  • Shrimp is another essential ingredient. It is often used to add a seafood element to dishes, providing a delicate and briny flavor. Whether it’s in soups, stir-fries, or spring rolls, shrimp adds a touch of umami that enhances the overall taste.
  • Vegetables with fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, and Thai basil to staple vegetables like cabbage, carrots, and bean sprouts, these ingredients add freshness, crunch, and vibrant colors to the dishes.
  • Lastly, fish sauce is the secret ingredient that gives Vietnamese cuisine its unique flavor. Made from fermented fish, fish sauce adds a salty and savory taste to dishes, acting as the umami component that completes the flavor profile.
