Laotian Food is Amazing

Ever since we attended the Laotian new years feast in Woonsocket at the Elks Hall I have been wanting to learn more about this amazing food. My Laotian neighbors have already planted their garden. I would join their church to learn to cook. They have welcomed me with open arms. I like to be the minority. It is a privilege to have this experience.

Lao recipes and Lao food
Sticky rice, fresh vegetables, mountains of fresh herbs, fish and meat, fish sauce, chilli, spices, fruit and more sticky rice... one of the wonderful features of the Lao diet is the almost complete absence of processed foods. Ironically, it’s the poor economic status of this small, landlocked South-East Asian country that has kept its cuisine fresh, vibrant and healthy for hundreds of years. Lao's culinary offering includes universal hits, like steamed fish in banana leaf and pork laap salad, alongside options for the adventurous eater, such as duck's blood salad.
