Enjoy a tasty dining experience with a friendly local family as you improve your cooking skill and pick up new local recipes
Sharing food at the dinner table is about telling your stories, getting to know your dining partner and learning more about his/her own side of the story. Enjoy your dinner, witness firsthand the local lifestyle of a typical Vietnamese family and learn how to cook Hue speciality menus as you share your experience and impression of Vietnam with them and learn more about their side of the story as well. You will feel that a dinner with a local family has never been so satisfying and intimate before.
Our driver will pick you up at around 4:30 pm at your hotel where you will get to enjoy a ride to the home of your local host. Sit back, relax and enjoy your short ride around the neighbourhood of Hue as you discover the view of the local neighbourhood, the hustle and the bustle of Hue city life along the way. Dinner will be served at a local traditional house located at a nearby village. Surrounded by evergreen trees, the quaint village typically houses as many as three generations under one roof, a typical familial scene in Vietnam. It also means that you will have ample opportunities to chat and strike a conversation with different family members from different generations. Get the chance to experience a cosy homely atmosphere while you get to know your host family. Go through the host family photos album and listen to their family story and house customs passed down from a long line of past generations. Then, join the host as you are shown how to cook their traditional dishes, and how to set up a proper dinner on the table. Take this chance to pick up and learn about the different palate, cooking techniques and table manners you would commonly not experience at your own home.
Once you finish cooking, be sure to also enjoy the meal that you have carefully prepared with your host family. Smile, laugh share some great stories over the table and be merry. Comment on the taste and how it is different from your home, how you find the experience to be and how you learn something new. Your host will be more than happy to listen and respond on what you wish to say. You can also share with them how the table manners and norms here are different from your place and how you feel about it. If you have brought any gift you would like to share with your host family, this is also the perfect time to hand it to them. Whatever you choose to give, your kind thought will definitely be much appreciated by your host family.
Once you finish your dinner, it is time to say goodbye. Be sure to capture some beautiful photos before you leave as you commemorate the exciting occasion. Finally, you will go back to the car where you will be dropped back at your hotel in Hanoi.
