Start the day at Nyaung U market, with a shopping list prepared by our chef. Spend time exploring the stalls where fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and meats are for sale as well as chilies, pastes and other sauces used in local cuisine. Your guide will explain the various ingredients and help you pick out the plumpest chicken, freshest fish and finest vegetables to use in your cooking class.
Return to the local restaurant where you will meet the local chef. A cooking area is set-up for the class and you will prepare the ingredients and use traditional techniques (such as mortar and pestle) to cook several Burmese favourites. During the demonstration you will also learn more about the cuisine of Myanmar, its influences and the typical eating habits of the local people.
After having prepared the dishes it’s time to sit down and enjoy a feast of freshly prepared delights.
Following your meal, return to your hotel.
