Postcards from Ngwe Ngein Village, Myanmar

Sometimes you just need an English Breakfast to stock up on energy for your day of adventure. The fresh local eggs from Myanmar are full of flavour —  check out the colour of those yolks!
 

Fuelled up, we spent a morning in Ngwe Nyein village, renowned for making massive clay water pots:      

  

We were greeted by the sweetest young monks… 

… and local kids:     

And after seeing all the pottery we headed back to our lovely boat for a scrumptious lunch. 

Green Papaya Salad (made without sneaky fish sauce!!):    

Fried Potato Skins with an Asian-inspired soy + sour cream dipping sauce:  

(Please note the fresh cilantro over everything. The chef and I have similar herb loves!)

Turmeric Cauliflower:  

And delicious peanutty Long Bean Salad with lots of sliced fresh shallots!  

Although I would have been ok with just the salads, Chef Stuart Hickman also spoiled us with a main course of Pineapple Fried Rice wrapped in a thin omelette!!! Yeah, this is getting replicated at home.  

Onwards, to more adventures!!
