Celebrate the arrival of spring in traditional Vietnamese style with some authentic food.
The form Tết Nguyên Đán, which is based on Sino-Vietnamese language, means "Feast of the First Morning of the First Day." It is also shortened and referred to as “Tết." Tết celebrates the arrival of spring based on the Vietnamese calendar, with the date falling in January or February in the Gregorian calendar.
In this private, online class, you'll learn to prepare authentic Vietnamese food that's traditionally a part of Tết. The dishes you'll learn in this 2-hour, single-session class include:
- Sweet sticky rice
- Boiled chicken
- Stir-fried veggies with beef
- Glass noodle soup with chicken broth and bamboo shoots (or mushroom)
- Picked scallion heads
Tết is generally celebrated on the same day as Chinese New Year, except when the one-hour time difference between Vietnam and China results in a new moon occurring on different days.
Vietnamese people prepare for Tết by cooking special holiday food and cleaning, decorating the house with lights and flowers, buying new furniture, clothes, and grooming. Many customs are practiced during Tết, such as visiting family and friend's house on the first day of the new year (xông nhà), ancestor worship, wishing New Year's greetings, giving lucky money to children and elderly people, and opening a shop.
