Luang Prabang is definitely the gastronomic capital of Laos. Historically, the town has always been rich in the arts, especially table arts. The best cooks were hired by the King. This created a legacy that has endured. All travelers stopping this place must savor the typical local dishes, which they will find, nowhere else in Laos. Lao gastronomy is reputed for being well balanced and healthy, novel, delicate and characteristic, with, as a basic element, the well known “sticky rice” which is eaten at every meal by the people of Lao.

Our guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel in Luang Prabang around 8:00am. Drive out to a local village to meet your host family, and then head off to the market to buy your ingredients. You’ll soon be familiar with galangal and lemongrass, and be able to identify the weird and wonderful herbs with the help of your host chef.  With your ingredients bagged up, head back to the family house and get ready to cook. Laos’s cuisine is quite similar to Thai but hotter and spicier with lots of chili. Depending on what was available in the market you might make laap a spicy salad of minced pork or chicken with sticky rice or the popular green papaya salad with shrimp paste, sugar and lime juice.  Sit down and taste-test your cooking skills, then after lunch take a stroll through the village and return to Luang Prabang. End of services.
