Cambodia – Classic cuisine

July 24, 2013 – 1:58 pm

Want to learn the secrets behind Cambodian cuisine? A cooking school in Siem Reap offers specialist tuition into creating the best Khmer dishes.

The twice daily, half-day cooking classes are conducted by a Cambodian chef at Champey restaurant. Students are first taken to a traditional market to purchase fresh ingredients, and the class is conducted in a traditional style Khmer house in the centre of the city.

It is possible to cook meat, seafood, or vegetarian dishes of the participant’s choice, with fish amok one of the most popular dishes. This is a fish mousse with fresh coconut milk and kroeung, a type of Khmer curry paste made from lemongrass, turmeric root, garlic, shallots, galangal and Chinese ginger. Besides getting to taste their culinary creations, participants also receive a complementary booklet, recipes, a certificate and some spices for home cooking.

Cookery courses at Champey Restaurant can be included in any Symbiosis Custom Travel holiday to Cambodia… so long as you include a visit to Siem Reap!
