Make a morning departure from your hotel and ride a tuk-tuk to one of Luang Prabang's top cooking schools. After an introduction by the chef, visit a local market to pick out locally grown, fresh ingredients. Learn how to select produce, herbs, and spices to enhance any Lao dish.
Returning to the restaurant, start your small-group cooking session as you learn to cut and prepare your own traditional meal. The chef-instructor shares recipes and means of preparation that define true Laotian cooking. Hear about the history and culinary influences from neighboring countries on the cuisine.
Then, feast on unique flavors during a delicious lunch featuring typical dishes shared among your classmates. Afterward, a tuk-tuk will take you back to your hotel at midday.
