Learn the secrets of Burmese culinary traditions on this journey to a lively local market followed by a home cooking lesson. The country of Myanmar is influenced by the cultural and culinary traditions of India and China. Your adventure begins with a visit to a local market where you’ll marvel at the fresh fish, vegetables, and discover both Indian and Myanmar spices. View traditional foods and source fresh ingredients for your cooking lesson. Then, travel to a local home where you’ll enjoy warm Burmese hospitality, watching locals prepare a family lunch. The Myanmar kitchen is the hub of the home, where women chat while pounding chili, crushing onion, and butchering meat. Then, in the kitchen, meet our executive chef who will explain the various food items on your menu while inviting you to join him on a hands-on cooking demonstration. Afterward, savor curries, coconut rice, and other delicious Burmese delicacies.
