COOKING CLASS @ CLASSIQUE INN
As the sun starts to show itself, up among the skies, and as the vendors of the local market start to put their items out for sale we leave Classique Inn to get the noodles and coconut juice secreted from it’s skin, the main ingredients for our dish.
After the damp and rawness of the local market we will arrive at Market Place (a store in the chain of grocery stores called City Mart), which will highlight the difference in advancements of the two venues, and to grab some more ingredients.
When the ingredients have all assembled, we will begin the process of making the traditional coconut noodle soup in our very own open-air kitchen where we welcome you to cook along with us.
