Be immersed in Myanmar’s culinary scene with a full day Bagan cooking class.
Start the day with a visit to the Nyaung U market. Armed with a shopping list prepared by the chef, wander through the colourful stalls to purchase fresh ingredients for lunch. Learn about the various items on sale- from exotic fruits to fiery chilies- and rub shoulders with the local shoppers who come every day to buy the best goods.
With bags full of ingredients, transfer to a local restaurant for the main event: a hands-on cooking class. Meet the instructor, a Bagan local chef and proprietor, and start cooking! Join the chef to prepare lunch, using traditional techniques such as mortar and pestle to grind, chop and pound the ingredients. Cook several dishes using recipes handed down from generation to generation. Throughout the course the chef will explain about the cuisine of Myanmar, its influences and the typical eating habits of the local people.
After this insightful Bagan cooking class, it’s time to sit down and enjoy a feast of freshly prepared delights.
Following your meal, say farewell to the chef and return to the hotel.
