Luang Prabang Home Cooking Adventure

December 19, 2018 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

This tour takes you on a home-cooking adventure to explore the culinary secrets of Lao cuisine. It begins at a local fresh market in Luang Prabang town, where you meet your tutor and chef for the day, Mrs Noy. Wondering around the market you learn about the local produce, and with Mrs Noy’s guidance purchase the fresh ingredients you need for your Lao cooking lesson. You then board a ferry and cross the Mekong River to visit Mrs Noy’s home, where her family will be waiting to greet you. However, don’t expect an immaculate, modern-equipped kitchen, as the cooking class takes place in Mrs Noy’s simple home. After sitting down with the family to a delicious lunch, you continue down river by boat to another community to try some kaipen, a popular Laotian snack made from dried, freshwater algae that is mixed with vegetables, sesame seeds and other ingredients. At the end of the day, while enjoying some Lao rice wine, glide gently back up river to Luang Prabang.
