On arrival in Yangon, we were met by our guide, the charming Aung Kyaw Myint, with whom we spent two weeks learning about history, geography, culinary arts, and cultural fluency – indeed it became our challenge to find any subject where he was not a complete expert. The only success we had was to introduce him to Bamboo Hut near the shores of Inle Lake – my daughter had insisted we seek it out and we were not disappointed. This family-run restaurant is nestled in the countryside, far from any tourist traffic. The food was some of the best we ate in Myanmar, fresh and homegrown. It was an enchanting find and the cooking course they offer was an added delight to our itinerary.
