"Super cozy and delicious!"


We attended the Vietnamese cooking workshop. It was easy to follow and fun to make and try new dishes. It was nice that David took the time to explain everything in English for the people who didn't speak Dutch. Highly recommended! "

My mission

My mission is to make Vietnamese cuisine accessible to everyone. I often notice that my guests think that:


  1. Vietnamese cuisine is extremely difficult
  2. Vietnamese cuisine is only for advanced cooks
  3. Vietnamese cuisine takes a long time
  4. Vietnamese sauces should be bought at supermarkets


  • With my 3-hour Vietnamese cooking class I want to show you that Vietnamese cuisine can be very accessible, even for novice cooks.
  • Furthermore, I am happy to show you how you can cook several Vietnamese dishes in less than 2 hours.
  •   I use ingredients that are available everywhere, and the Vietnamese sauces are made 'from scratch'.

Vietnamese ingredients of the Vietnamese cooking class of Amsterdam Cooking Workshops

1. Key ingredients of Vietnamese cuisine

Authentic Vietnamese cooking starts with the right ingredients. However, you find many variants and brands of certain ingredients in the Asian supermarket or Indonesian toko. I explain which ingredients and brands are best to use, and why I use them.

2. Vietnamese sauces

Proper Vietnamese dipping sauces are one of the most important parts of Vietnamese cuisine. I don't like ready-made sauces, and of course I teach you how to easily prepare delicious dipping sauces yourself.

3. Vietnamese dishes

After you have made the Vietnamese sauces, it's time to start cooking! I teach you step by step how to cook several traditional and streetfood Vietnamese dishes. Of course I take your dietary preferences, and possible allergies into account when composing the menu. Sample menu:


  • Spring rolls with shrimps (Gỏi Cuốn Tôm)
  • Chicken soup with herbs and spices (Phở Gà)
  • Marinated fish with rice noodles and vegetables (Chả Cá)
  • Braised chicken with lemongrass and coconut (Gà Sả)

    What my guests are saying

    Myrthe, Amsterdam

    "Super educational, fun and delicious experience!"


    For my friend's birthday we did a Vietnamese cooking workshop with David. After a short introduction about himself, his past, family, and how he started cooking, he broadly talked about the ingredients we would be working with.


    Together with him we made some delicious Vietnamese dishes; fresh spring rolls, and the famous Pho Bo, among others. During the cooking he guided us in our cooking technique, he showed us everything neatly before we were allowed to try it ourselves and afterwards we ate our works of art.


    Overall, great!
