Khmer Cooking Class in Siem Reap

Once you’re picked up from your hotel, begin with a short trip to Siem Reap’s Old Market, a traditional Cambodian marketplace. Follow your guide among the various stalls, where vendors sell fragrant herbs, spices and produce like mangoes and bananas. After about 20 minutes exploring the market and purchasing ingredients with help from your guide, head to your nearby cooking class.

Upon arrival at the renowned cooking school, an expert chef explains the fundamentals of Khmer cuisine. Learn about the typical base of rice with pork, chicken and fish, as well as the culinary extras — such as lemongrass, chilies and limes — that give Cambodian dishes their spicy and savory flavor.

Then put on your apron and get to work whipping up a mouthwatering meal that includes spring rolls and traditional Khmer amok. Prepare your curry paste with a mortar and pestle, pounding shallots and garlic with lime leaves and turmeric powder. Then watch the thinly sliced fish steam along with a delectable coconut curry sauce simmering in the saucepan, and serve it up in a bowl or banana leaf.

Following a few hours of cooking, sit down to sample your creations with your fellow food lovers over lunch before you’re transported back to your hotel by private vehicle.
