Voyagers can jump in and get their hands dirty with this interactive and friendly cooking challenge! Explore the tastes and techniques of Việt Namese cuisine by using local kitchenware to prepare three tasty dishes inspired by the well-known Việt Nam Cookery Center. Of course, only whole fresh ingredients are used for this Việt Namese Cuisine!

Meet the chef at Ben Thanh market where they will explain the rules of the market race treasure hunt and guide participants through the colorful and vibrant produce section. Splitting into teams with pocket money and a shopping list, race to buy all the needed ingredients at the best bargain! After teams have gathered all of their ingredients, head to the Việt Nam Cookery Center for a cooking challenge. Before starting, our master Chef and their assistants will conduct a demonstration and explain how to use standard Việt Namese kitchenware. Teams will embark upon a cooking mission to realize three different Việt Namese dishes, which will be judged according to criteria of taste, food presentation, and best introduction. Teams can then sit down together to enjoy a hard-earned lunch of their three dishes (as well as two special dishes prepared by the chef!)
