Battambang isn't full of a million things to do so we thought we give a cooking class a go as it would be something a bit different to do! We went to the markets first to buy the ingredients for the cooking class (in the morning, the ingredients will be fresher). We were told what all the different veges and... More

Were were only with the two of us but that was no problem! We could pick the dishes our self. We decided to do some together and some separately. The best thing for us about this class is that it is organized by a local who does not only take you to the local market but also to his own... More

Having taken this cooking class, we were given a clear understanding of what it means to be a chef in Battambang/Cambodia.

With a strong sense of hygiene, taste and cutting methods, he showed... More
