Saturday, September 19, 2015, we came back from a travel hiatus of two years and with the help of hosts Colleen & Stephanie, threw a Lao inspired dinner party! Seven guests--some new and some returning--enjoyed a 4 course dinner party. On my trip to Luang Prabang, I fell in love with their cuisine, their country and their people. We recreated a dinner I had there with great success!
While one can never recreate a dish exactly, these are close to the memories I have of one great meal:
* Charred Tomato-Shallot Dip
*Charred Eggplant-Herb Dip
*Seaweed Chips with Gomasio
*Fried Rice Crackers
*Black Pepper Shrimps
Lemongrass stuffed with Spiced Chicken Sour Peanut Sauce
