Cooking Classes in Luang Prabang
Master the art of laap
What we say:
Developed a taste for sticky rice? Some of Luang Prabang's best restaurants offer cooking classes sharing their kitchens' best-loved local recipes visitors.
Generally, classes run a full day from morning until dinner and 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 a two-course lunch and a three-course dinner with typical sides of sticky rice and jeowbong (chilli paste). All schools can alter recipes to accommodate vegetarians.
The shorter evening classes are more a demonstration followed by a tasting, but participants also get a recipe book so they can replicate what they see. Class size is limited, so it's best to sign up a day or two in advance.
The following restaurants each offer their own cooking class:
