I love food.
I love cooking.
This is not a secret.
I was so happy to see an afternoon cooking class on our itinerary when we were in Myanmar in December. Food is how I connect to a destination.
Getting all up in the local food?
Let's do this.
If you've been to a cooking school or class before, you may have gotten a printed copy of the recipes. At the Wheel, if you want to have the recipes, you need to take notes. I was the official note taker for our party. Just know that there is a lot of garlic and/or ginger in everything, and you'll be set!
We were making a whole wheel of dishes, so the school provides kitchen helpers - lovely ladies who kept us on the right track, minded the pressure cooker, and laughed along when I grabbed the pestle and started making up songs, such as "Do You Want to Make Some Curry?" to the tune of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"
We had a great time and if you're in Bagan, I'd definitely recommend it!
|So many fresh ingredients!
|Shallots for everyone
|My sister crushing things like it's her job
|Our fabulous kitchen helpers
|Too many cooks in the kitchen? No way!
|Our lunch, Wheel style
Do you take cooking classes at home or when you travel?
If so, what was your favorite experience?
