Healthy Cooking Classes
With an emphasis on simplicity, freshness, seasonality and regionalism, Cambodian food has won praise for its elegant and understated use of spice; its harmonious arrangement of contrasting flavours, textures and temperatures within the meal rather than a single dish; and its thoughtful and, at times, extravagant presentation of dishes with plenty of herbs, leaves, pickles, dipping sauces, edible flowers and other garnishes and condiments.
Khmer cuisine, like its people, has shown remarkable resilience in the face of adversity and challenges. During the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime of the 1970s, Cambodian cuisine was almost wiped out and forgotten. It’s only been quite recently that Khmer cuisine has made something of a revival. Living standards have dramatically improved over the last fifteen years, and today several cooking courses are now run in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, and other popular tourist areas, giving visitors the chance to share the culinary secret of the Khmers.
Join in for an amazing Cambodian cuisine in this fully hands on class.

You are provided information on the ingredients you are using and learn how to cook a Cambodian feast! At the end you enjoy your hard work in a sala over a lotus pond. You are provided a small booklet with the recipes from your class as well as extras.
