Anyone visiting Krygyzstan quickly understands the importance of food to Kyrgyz culture. And the extreme diversity across even local cuisines and offerings by region. Naryn is no different, and local cuisine here has been influenced over centuries by the many ethnicities that now are mixed amongst local society.

The Uighur people stemmed from China, and a primary dish that is directly attributed to them is one of Kyrgyzstan’s most famous dishes – laghman. This workshop will provide explanation and context surrounding this dish, will allow participants to cook the dish themselves with a local guide in a local homestay, and most importantly to enjoy a delicious serving of this Naryn staple while being entertained with local stories of Naryn and the region!
