Taste some Lao cooking! The Lao Food Show brings a sense of Lao history through a cooking demo along with the country’s most culturally popular dish, Laap Gai. We’ll talk through the history of the Lao food culture and its influences from the neighboring countries.

It’s going to be as authentic as it gets. That means sticky rice, fermented fish sauce called padak, and extremely fragrant herbs that will make your nose zing.

Show up because you like funky delicious food, join because you want your taste buds to dance, and come because you want to spice up your food life.

Tickets are limited due to kitchen space. Grab yours quickly.

Laap Gai is a delicious savory and herbaceous chicken salad that is slightly spicy, yet refreshing from the fresh dill, spring onions, and cilantro, all tossed in a citrusy umami vinaigrette.

Forget the forks and spoons. Shape sticky rice into whatever your heart desires; be it a spoon, a mini bowl or dinosaur, before you dip and scoop up this delectable chicken delight. When was the last time you were allowed to play with your food?! At the Lao Food Show, fun time is yum time!

So come grab a drink at the Salt City Bar and learn about the Lao cultural history through a food demo, a tasting of the dish, and with a side of surprise! You’ll leave with a recipe in hand and eager to recreate the experience in your own home. See you there!
