A very well organized tour. Sunny is a very attentive teacher. With her friendly and natural nature, she competently and passionately communicates Vietnamese cuisine. The recipes are well put together and it was great how naturally and calmly the eating habits were dealt with. The cooking area is very nicely designed and I am looking forward to boiling it down using the recipes sent to us. I highly recommend the tour!
