Members from foreign representative agencies in Ho Chi Minh City attended a pho cooking class under the guidance of chefs from the Saigon Professional Chefs Association (SPC) on Nov. 23.

Co-hosted by the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Institute of Cultural Exchange with France (IDECAF), the Ho Chi Minh City Food & Beverage Association (FBA) and the SPC, the event drew leaders and staff of representative agencies from the U.K., Australia, Belarus, Cambodia, Hungary, Indonesia, New Zealand, Japan, China and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) who cooked beef, lamb and vegan pho.

Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs Pham Tran Thanh Thao said the exchange activity, in response to Vietnam's Day of Pho on Dec. 12, enables diplomats and their families to explore and spread the essence of Vietnamese culinary culture, and the secrets of making delicious pho to the international community.

After completing the class, the agencies received certificates and joined in a gathering to enjoy the noodle soup. They also had the opportunity to visit a display of photos and taste complimentary servings of various dishes at the event.
