Pick up at your hotel in Vientiane, ride car/tuk tuk to the local market, where you’ll spend some time exploring fresh foods, learn about ingredients before your cooking lesson begins. You will learn about typical meats, vegetable and dry goods that locals use in their daily meals including pa daek, a fermented fish sauce traditionally used in Lao cuisine…
