The latest Friends cookbook comes from Makphet Restaurant, our award-winning (Miele Guide Asia) training restaurant in Vientiane, Lao PDR.

Its not only a wonderful book full of amazing recipes collected by our students and team as they travelled across the country, but it is also a feast for the eyes. Come with us as we go on a culinary journey across Laos, tasting and trying the recipes amid the gorgeous Laotian countryside which provides the illustrated backdrop for the recipes alongside drawings and paintings by the children we work with. The recipes, stories and pictures make this an unforgettable way to experience the true taste of Laos in your own home!

‘from Honeybees to Pepperwood’ has been awarded ‘Best in the World – Best Fundraising Book Asia’ at the Gourmand International Awards in Paris, 2012.

This book is also available in a French language edition.
