Spontaniously I booked the day course the evening before after the dinner in the restaurant which was amazing. We were just three guests and two chefs. One of them could barely speak english the other one was less good in giving cooking tipps. But together they made a good team and could help us. The market trip was interesting. I... 更多
I had initially tried to book a lesson at Tamarind, but it was booked up for several days. Tamnak Lao had mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, but I decided to go for it. I had a great experience. We spent a good amount of time at the market, with Phia showing us all of the ingredients and products at the... 更多
Both course instructors had poor english, little knowledge of how to educate with very little interaction throughout. No formal opening or closing of the course on their part, they lacked enthuasiam and passion and appeared to be going through the motions.

A highly recommended experience. Tried booking at the more well known tamarind school, but fully booked all week. Found this one by chance and no regrets at all. Run by a very friendly Australian woman but with authentic Lao cooks. Started with trip to large local market where all local produce was purchased and explained. Cooked two dishes for lunch... 更多

Interesting visit to the market where we saw the local ingredients, the demonstrations of each dish was well done and questions were answered. The cookbooks are well laid out with easy to follow instructions. The dishes were tasty and we got to eat banana flower! The special Lao... 更多
We really can recommend this cooking course. They fullfine everything which they promise in their brochure. You cook the dishes in a team of two people after one of the teacher show you how to cook these meal-and you not just cut vegetables and that's it. I also like that you can take the food as take a way and... 更多
You get to go to market and help select produce. Has highly interactive and hands on style tuition with demonstrations. At the end you receive a recipe booklet.
