Vo Thi Bao Vi

10 years


In the more than 10 years I have been a freelance tour guide, I have met many tourists who eventually became my friends. They have one thing in common - they all are mesmerized by Vietnamese cuisine and fell in love with it. I am also a travelholic and have set my foot in many countries from east to west and experienced various cultures, and got to try different foods where I landed. I can say with confidence and pride that Vietnamese cuisine is one of the most delicious and healthiest in the world. The country’s dishes not only have a distinctive flavour reflecting the wide range of fresh ingredients, they are also easy to make.

What was your inspiration to get into cooking, food and teaching how to cook?

That’s the reason I created a YouTube channel called "Vietnam Cuisine with Vi", which allows me to indulge in my passion for cooking, to share with the world how to make easy but healthy authentic Vietnamese dishes. I also offer cooking classes for travellers who love to have hands-on culinary and authentic dining experience with a young family. Check out "Vietnam Cuisine with Vi" to see some simple but delicious recipes and contact me to book an unforgettable cooking class or dining experience at my home.

What excites you the most about your work?

To please my family members and to share with foreigners about Vietnam Cuisine and Culture

How do you select the menu for you classes?

- Making food is an art of creativeness so I do not have same recipes every time. I always change a bit to see if the tastes are different - Food needs to balance between Ying- Yang in terms of color, nutrition and flavor - Fresh ingredients are must

What do you love the most about cooking?

- Try new recipes with same ingredients - See people enjoy my food
