Learning to cook Khmer food is a great way to introduce your Cambodia experience to your friend
Phnom Penh/Cooking class in the city
Cambodia Cooking Class is the first and only Khmer cooking school for travellers in Phnom Penh. Learning to cook Khmer food is a great way to introduce your Cambodia experience to your friends. Recreate the real recipes back home and invite them to a mouth-watering meal. Some guide books say that Cambodia's cuisine is nothing to write home about and a poorer cousin to Thai cuisines. Now, that is completely untrue. A thousand years ago the Khmer Kingdom, which centered on Angkor, ruled an empire that included most of south-east Asia. Hence, many of the Thai and other regional dishes have their roots in Khmer cooking from that time!!!!! While there are similarities, Cambodian cuisine should be taken in its own right. Khmer recipes go back to the days before the introduction of the chili, so are consequently much milder than most Asian food.
