Inle Heritage Cookery Class

Learn the heritage and cookery techniques of the Shan State in this unique cultural centre

Situated on the banks of the lake, the heritage house is primarily a restaurant and cultural learning centre which offers cooking classes (called cooking with cats... read on below) specialising in the distinctive local Shan cuisine with traditional cooking methods. The heritage house also protects other aspects of Burmese culture - Inle Lake has a history rich in felines and the house is also home to 37 Burmese cats. Aside from the cats, the heritage house is also taking great strides in sustainable tourism, supporting local villages and running an organic farm.
