About this experience

You can’t visit Thailand, Vietnam, and Singapore in one day...or can you? Eat your way through Southeast Asia with Singapore-based food expert Vivian Pei, who will teach you how to make the region’s favorite rice noodle dishes. With Vivian’s expert guidance and tips, you’ll prepare authentic Vietnamese phở, pad Thai, and Singapore’s Moonlight Hor Fun at home. Vivian will also give you a crash course in Southeast Asian ingredients, including where to source them and what substitutes to use, as well as general techniques for prepping, plating, and serving the true Southeast Asian way.

What to expect

You and Chef Vivian Pei will meet in your kitchen (over video chat) to cook, taste, share stories, and acquire valuable skills that will last well beyond your time together.


This Delicious Experience is not a pre-recorded cooking video, big Zoom gathering, or the kind of online course where your eyes glaze over; it is a one-of-a-kind private experience where you will work together with Chef Vivian Pei to create something amazing in your kitchen.


After booking, you will communicate with the chef to adapt the experience and menu to your tastes and interests, then receive a customized ingredients list.


Prior to your online cooking class we will provide you with a Zoom link and any assistance you may need to connect to the experience from your laptop, tablet, or phone.

Connect up to 2 screens to share the experience with friends or family. Contact us for discounted rates on additional screens.
