The elegant Ms Nook met us took us up the the main food market and we were blown away by the colour and fantastic variety of produce. She explained, in detail some of the finer points of Lao life and its close relationship with good, fresh food, I've never seen so many types of rice alone.
Rule #1 - go and do this. Rule #2 - don't have breakfast before you go!
Trip then heads to a wonderful family run cafe, out of the tourist routes for Lao coffee and Sticky rice pancakes with mango.
You then go to a gorgeous house on the Mekong where Ms Nook and her team teach you to cook Mok Pa, Sticky Li (rice), dips, papaya salad, great Larb and then rice pudding with Mango, You then lunch on your creations before heading back to Vientiane.
Could not have been more delighted with the whole trip 10 out of 10.
