Tour Description

THIS IS IT - Your best opportunity to learn Vietnamese secrets for living a healthy vegan lifestyle! With Karma Waters Vegan Cooking Classes, you will gain plenty of knowledge and culinary experience from expert vegan chefs who can teach you how to cook Vietnamese, Indian, and international cuisines.

The Karma Waters philosophy is to promote and provide a healthy organic vegan diet, which significantly reduces your pollution footprint, as a major personal step towards living a more sustainable lifestyle! In fact, they have successfully influenced some of their non-vegan customers to convert to veganism.

In this cooking class, there are no hidden ingredients or methods; the only "secret" is to put love into everything you do! To participate, you will first choose vegan dishes you'd like to prepare. Karma Waters' specialties are Pho noodles soup, spicy vegetables with rice crackers, Hoi An Cao Lau noodles, turmeric pancake spring rolls, and raw summer rolls. Next, you will work alongside your teacher and learn how to cook your meal. Finally, you will savor the flavor of your own creation as you sit down at Karma Waters Restaurant and indulge in your special vegan meal!

    We really enjoyed our class with Karma Waters in Hoi An. Being able to choose the three dishes we would cook was great because we knew they were the kinds of recipes we'd want to recreate at home - and we definitely will! The restaurant is small and the max of 4 students makes the class intimate and low key. The class was easy to follow, with our teacher explaining the ingredients and the process, answering any of our questions, demonstrating the steps and letting us do the rest. They were also very accommodating with our not-spicy preference. We prepared our three dishes over about 90 minutes and then got to enjoy the meal. It was very tasty and more than enough food for two people (if not four), so we took home left-overs. We can recommend this cooking class for anyone interested in cooking healthy, tasty food - even if you're not vegan.
