Cooking Class in Vientiane
19th March, 2011
We show visitors to Vientiane Lao style cooking in the garden by the Mekong River. The garden is in a quiet area of Vientiane where you can watch Lao life pass by.
You will make a variety of popular Lao dishes and use the freshest ingredients. Using traditional cooking implements and cooking methods provides the perfect photo opportunity.
We limit our Lao cooking classes to a maximum of six people so you get the opportunity to interact with our Lao cooking instructor and further enhance your knowledge of local people and their culture.
If you'd like to slow down and relax in the capital, the staff at Lao Experiences looks forward to creating a memorable experience for you.

I have been into Vientiane so long and this is my first time for a cooking class. But this is not only cooking; here is a lovely, quiet retreat, by the Mekong and lunch in the garden with Monks chanting in the nearby temple. The Lao cooking was also totally fun, delicious and I got to see all the favourite herbs and ingredients which are favourites used by Lao cooks. We sipped on fresh lime juice before we began to cook and even this was a treat.
I came away with a small cook book and the confidence that I could impress friends with at least two Lao dishes. Especially sticky rice, coconut milk and mango (in season).
The stretch of river side before the garden is also a bonus.....better than a restaurant. Catherine

i thought that learning to cook Lao-style food would be a difficult, long cooking lesson, but this cooking experience changed my views completely.
Cooking with Lao Experiences was great- i learnt a lot (including how to make perfect sticky rice, delicious!) and enjoyed the whole experience. The beautiful setting- we ate our homecooked lunch overlooking the Mekong River- was the icing on the cake.
Would recommend this for anyone spending a few days in Vientiane, its a lovely experience.

I have participated in other cooking classes and this one is excellent. The location on the Mekong is lovely with the sounds of locals passing by, the monks chatting at the near by wat and the view over the water. The class is run at a great pace and the dishes on offer are a wonderful introduction to Lao cuisine.
I would recommend this to anyone passing though Vientiane!

haha, was thinking the same here, seems like somebody made a few accounts to promote their cooking class.

Hello Wandering Cat-
I know cats are curious so...
If you are in Vientiane ask about our cooking and culture course at The Full Moon Cafe; or Hotel Beau Rivage Mekong; or Ansara Hotel; or call us.
Our guests have been very happy with this experience and the reviews reflect this.
