What To Expect
Always dreamed of being a Cambodian chef? This is your chance! Starting from an ancient temple ruin, we head out to a village with a mini tour of a local community. See locals returning from the rice fields and maybe buffalo and ox carts being led by their owners. Your guide will tell you a bit about daily life and introduce you to some of the many fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. See local houses and catch a glimpse inside a kitchen where you can imagine what it's like to cook an entire family meal on a charcoal pot.
Arrive at our lovely cooking venue (complete with charming herb garden) close to sunset. Your guide will show you some local herbs and you'll get to collect a few to use in this evening's dishes. Then scrub up and get ready to cook!
Then the hands-on experience begins; your guide will teach you a few tricks and techniques for preparing the ingredients, but everything is done by you. Prepare a starter, a main and a dessert, as well as a cocktail or herbal tea, depending on your choice. Also learn some simple presentation techniques - perfect for impressing friends back home with your awesome talents at your next dinner party.
Before dinner is served, have ample time to relax in a peaceful dining pavilion, surrounded by a tropical garden. This might also be a good time to taste-test a cocktail or herbal tea before settling in to enjoy your fresh, tasty Khmer creations. Our professional team will serve your dishes and you can finally savor the flavors of your labor!
Best of all, if you love what you made, we'll help you replicate it at home - get a recipe card to take back with you.
