In a tour of meatballs of the world, learn how to make Vietnamese Bun Cha, with a chef joining you, live from Vietnam

We wish everyone would take a tour of meatballs around the world. Each country has their unique take on this household favourite, and Vietnam is no different. Bun Cha are fresh, vibrant and will take your ordinary meatball up 10 notches.  Coupled with noodles, fresh herbs and vegetables and topped off with a Mango Custard dessert, easy enough for a weeknight sweet treat - this class is one everyone should take.  


If you're new to Bun Cha, welcome to what will become a staple meal in your own kitchen. In Hanoi, Bun Cha is the lunch of choice.  So much so, in 1959 a Vietnamese food writer even described Hanoi as a town “transfixed by bún chả". This savory and herbaceous dish can be found all over the North as street food, in homes, or in high end restaurants. In the South, a similar dish of rice vermicelli and grilled meat is called bún thịt nướng. While today we often associate different dishes with Vietnam first, Bun Cha has become more popular on menus after a photo of former President Obama circulated on the internet dining with the late Anthony Bourdain.
