What we say: 4.5 stars

Generally, there are either day classes or evening classes available. Day classes typically begin with a visit to the fresh market for shopping and an introduction to all the herbs and spices essential to Lao cuisine. Participants then prepare four to six dishes along with the essential sticky rice and jeow (Lao dips) and get the recipes in paper to take home. All schools can alter recipes to accommodate vegetarians. Some schools are more hands-on and engaging than others (which are more of a demonstration and tasting).

Class size is limited, so it's best to sign up a day or two in advance.
