Join us on this 10 day culinary and cultural adventure to Myanmar — a beautiful country with glittering golden stupas, bountiful rice paddies, picturesque mountain paths, and incredible cuisine. Bordered by India, Bangladesh, China, Laos, and Thailand, Myanmar is larger than France, and yet remains the least developed country in Southeast Asia. Hundreds of ethnic tribes have been living in the area for thousands of years and many have continued their centuries old, local way of life until now.

The country's diversity is generally celebrated — Myanmar has official public holidays for almost every world religion, and sometimes joked about — with some healthy feeling of “competition and envy” for the better food, costumes, jewellery or other cultural differences from the various states.

The wonderful people of Myanmar LOVE to introduce foreigners to their country, culture, and especially their incredible cuisine. Burmese food hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves primarily due to its 50 years of isolation under a repressive military dictatorship. Myanmar is a country made up of many ethnicities, and each one has its own special dishes and styles of cooking. A few unifying factors that span this diverse country are the overwhelmingly sour and savoury flavours that dominate the food, as well as the tendency for dishes to be served with a ton of accompaniments such as soups, boiled vegetables, herbs or dipping sauces and pastes.

Join us on NOV 3rd-12th, 2017 for this culinary adventure sure to delight your tastebuds!
