all the Ingredients for an exceptional Vietnam Culinary Tour 
…while seeing the sights in comfort and style

6 night Hanoi tour or 11 night north and central Vietnam tour.

The 11 night tour explores Northern and Central Vietnam’s cuisine and culinary traditions. Tracey Lister shares with you her extensive knowledge of the country she called home for over a decade. Experience the sights and foods she has shared with chefs, food writers and food lovers alike on her well-loved culinary tours.

The tour starts in the vibrant Vietnamese capital Hanoi with its mix of fragrant broths and hearty cooler climate fare. After a short a break on Ha Long Bay the tour moves to Hue, the Imperial city known for its royal cuisine, reflected in the many small dishes created to please Emperor Duc in the 1800’s. Then it’s over the dramatic Hai Van Pass to picturesque Hoi An, known for its abundant seafood and its use of lemongrass and chilli.

As we visit these cities we will feast in local restaurants, noisy bia hois, the occasional upmarket restaurant, as well as in people’s homes and, Tracey’s favourite…. dining with locals perched on small stools at roadside curbs.

Tracey’s 6 night tour will demystify and give you all the tips and information you need to travel independently throughout Vietnam without wasting a meal!  Tracey will take you into the back streets and hidden depths of Hanoi’s northern cuisine. Highlights include farms visits and a cooking class in a stilt house overlooking market gardens.
