I myself realize that through foods always the best way to learn about a new culture. So, in your journey to everywhere, take a cooking class and you will gain more than a dish. An interesting Tamarind cooking class in Luang Prabang is always a priority.
Go to the local market to choose the fresh ingredients such as meat, fish, chicken, vegetable and spicy. And then the teacher will give your some brief information of each meal that you want to learn as well as some basic process to do it. Tamarind cooking class shows you many interesting lesson of making ua si khai, jeow, laap, khao gam, etc. especially ua si khai – chicken or meat stuffed lemongrass- strikes my taste in the first time to make and enjoy it. You also have chances to contact with other participants coming from the world and share with them your own stories in your Laos travels. It is a great time after visiting the ancient temples and sleepy streets as well.
