Lao Cooking Classes: A hands-on experience (Luang Prabang)
Lao cuisine relies heavily on the freshest produce and incorporates a range of intriguing flavors, many unfamiliar to the western plates. We start with an early morning tour of Luang Prabang’s major food market where we investigate these ingredients and explain their uses. You will then later learn how to pound your ingredients in a mortar & pestle, and cook over an open fire.
