During a recent trip to Luang Prabang, Laos, I had an opportunity to learn how to create a few typical Lao dishes through the Tamarind Cooking School (official webpage). Note: Tamarind is actually a restaurant that also happens to offer cooking classes.

The Tamarind Cooking School is not located at the Tamarind restaurant. The site for the “school” is actually outside of the town of Luang Prabang in a jungle setting. Students get a chance to get out of the city and dine amongst the cacophony of jungle noises. These noises seem to grow louder and louder as the night falls (we participated in the later class which went from 4:30pm – 8:30pm).
