Vietnam, Educational Food Tour! April 2020

From Food Technology and TAS Teacher, Davina O’Hara

In April 2020, we will be going on an Educational Food Technology Gastronomy Tour to Vietnam.

This tour will offer our students an exciting Educational Tour of Vietnam, with a focus on food and gastronomy. The tour has been designed to enrich the students learning through observation of traditional Vietnamese food preparation and cooking techniques and participation in cooking demonstrations and lessons, led by knowledgeable local chefs.

As well as learning about authentic cuisine, the students will discover stunning and varied landscapes and become fully immersed in Vietnamese culture and history. The boys will be exploring the main highlights of key culinary and historical destinations of Hanoi, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh, as well as uncovering hidden gems of the country.

We have partnered up with the experienced Haka Educational Tours. We used Haka also for our Stem Educational tour to the USA earlier this year. They will provide us with a local guide throughout our tour that will ensure that we are all safe and have lots of fun.

As an Edmund Rice school, we provide students with opportunities to help those less fortunate and throughout the tour we have a number of social justice activities planned for the students, providing a positive contribution to the people and places of Vietnam.
