Celebrate ‘Mother’s Day’ Vietnamese-style with The Anam’s new ‘Mama’s Cooking’ initiative

Just in time for Mother’s Day, the five-star Vietnamese beach resort, The Anam, has announced the launch of its new ‘Mama’s Cooking’ culinary offering, designed to appeal to holiday-makers tired of dining on westernised local cuisine.

Every Wednesday evening at The Anam, guests can watch six mothers of the resort’s existing local staff cook traditional Vietnamese delicacies before their eyes. They will learn how each dish is made before indulging in a home-cooked-style feast.

Donning iconic conical hats and tunics in the place of chefs’ whites, the mothers will draw on centuries-old recipes which have been handed down through the generations. They will cook each dish in the traditional way without toning down spice or flavour, just as they would when cooking for their own families.

Set against the backdrop of one of the resort’s three swimming pools with views of Vietnam’s ‘Long Beach’, it is the perfect setting for a traditional, gastronomic feast.

The Anam’s founder and owner, Pham Van Hien, commented:

“These women didn’t train as cooks. They didn’t go to culinary school, and carry no fancy titles. But oh, how they can cook! This is how we Vietnamese eat day-to-day, and we’re thrilled to be sharing the experience with our guests. It doesn’t get any more authentic than this.”

The Mama’s Cooking experience is priced at £22 per person and takes place every Wednesday night at The Anam. Nightly rates start from $200 (£145) for a Balcony Garden View Room.
