Cooking class in Siem Reap – the best. Khmer food is so delicious and taking this class taught me so much about spices and different foods. Eye opening for sure.
Below you can see how cheap this class is – only $15.00 per person. Plus, you get to eat! Lucky for us, we were the only two in the class. Oh, and our t-shirts rock.
Ready to Cook
Here we go!
When booking the class we got to pick our meals. I picked salad, curry and then a banana dessert. Bryce picked spring rolls, a rice dish and then a spiced pumpkin like dessert. Below, that’s our stove. Gas is the best way to cook, so I was happy.
Time to peel veggies.
Bryce is cooking the spring roll filling. He loved the wooden utensil he was cooking with so much that he bought one when we were in Phnom Penh.
My mango salad.
Oh, our instructor took over because we were fooling around too much and she got scared with us and the hot oil.
When I was cutting my garlic and spices for the curry you should have seen her face – she was so scared I was going to cut myself. Not because I don’t know how to use a knife, but probably because I do and she’s used to rookies. This girl isn’t a rookie with a knife. I’m not the greatest at all, not by a long shot – yet her face was priceless.
How cool is this knife? So neat.
The one downfall of travelling with only a carry-on – I couldn’t buy one.
Time to mash spices.
This curry was so good. The bonus, I got the recipe. The bummer, I can’t find half of the ingredients in Canada.
Overall, our cooking class in Siem Reap was amazing. I highly suggest you take a cooking class while you’re in Siem Reap. The friendly people along with the great food just make for an awesome experience.
Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you this weekend for a quick sewing project. Bye!
