An Intro to Lao Cuisine

Spend an evening in the home of a local chef and learn from the best how to cook delicious Lao dishes.

Travel to Ban Nong Bone Village, where the Head Chef, Vanpheng, will welcome you into her home and begin your cooking class.
Over the next few hours you’ll learn how to cook three local dishes using traditional ingredients and techniques. Afterwards, relax and enjoy the feast you’ve created together. Traditional sweets and snacks will also be on offer, although the savoury dishes tend to be most popular to prepare. Tropical drinks are also included with the meal.

Say farewell to Vanpheng and spend the rest of the evening at leisure.

Afterwards we recommend a stroll along the banks of the Mekong River through Chao Anou Park and the Night Market, observing locals and taking in the views. Both are situated along the Mekong and this area is most appealing at night. Adventurous foodies can sample a wide range of local snacks along the way. Cap off the night enjoying a bottle of the Beerlao, a tasty local beer brewed from the best local rice and high quality malt.
