We did a day cooking course couple weeks ago. The local market visit was enjoyable, but too fast and not too informative. As soon as we get back, chefs demonstrated the dishes reasonably. After that, there was no interaction while we're cooking. Chefs seemed to...More

I did the evening class as there is so much to do in laos and I have so little time! Really great fun. Good class. The two chefs are great. They first demonstrated four dishes- you then taste them and decide which dish you want...More

We really enjoyed this. A Lao chef prepared four different dishes in front of us, and then we got to pick two to cook for ourselves for dinner. We came back home prepared to make some of these dishes for ourselves, and found that some...More

I'm not really sure what I thought of this cooking school. What made it for me was the people who were also participating. Such a friendly bunch. We've done a fair few cooking classes in Asia and I can't say it was the best. We...More

The day started off with a visit to the morning market. I enjoy this part if the day since it brings me to a place locals shop at, a place filled with smells, sights, and items I'm not familiar with. We, the student chefs, don't...More

The 2 hour course is very basic but you do get to watch the two chefs cook and then get on with your own cooking. There is minimal supervision of the cooking as the instructor chefs were chatting and washing up rather than walking around...More
