Phnom Penh Culinary Delights - Full Day
Today’s tour will begin at 08:00. Gain insight into the art of Khmer cuisine with a hands-on Phnom Penh cooking class. Start the day with a guided tour through the local food market alongside a professional chef who will explain the Cambodian fruits, vegetables and spices. Be amazed at the vast array of colors, smells, and tastes for sale - from the ubiquitous, smelly fish sauce to the sweet, fragrant mangoes.
After loading up on fresh ingredients, travel by remork (similar to the Thai ‘tuk-tuk’) to the cooking school and explore the secrets of Khmer food preparation. Under the chef’s guidance, use traditional techniques to create delicious home-style dishes.
Take a break and enjoy the freshly-prepared lunch, tasting the subtle flavours of local cuisine. Then return to the kitchen for an introductory lesson on fruit and vegetable carving. This unique art form is used at special occasions such as weddings.
Say goodbye to the chef and wrap up the Phnom Penh cooking class with a full stomach and a recipe book of Khmer dishes. (L)
