Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Countryside Cooking In Siem Reap

Travel out into Cambodia's rural countryside to discover the secrets of authentic Khmer cuisine; one of the least known but most flavoursome of Asia's gastronomic offerings.

Though not as celebrated or well-known as the cuisines of Cambodia's larger neighbours, Khmer food has plenty to tempt the palate. Swapping a sterile kitchen environment for the outdoors at the beautiful Chreave Village, a rural community approximately 20 minutes from Siem Reap town, unravel the mysteries of authentic Khmer cooking with a half-day class.

The course begins with a walk through the local market with a professional chef to learn about Cambodian vegetables, herbs, spices and other ingredients and their uses. Travel onto a picturesque wooden villa where you will be shown how to prepare these delicious dishes. The hands-on experience is a great way to learn about Khmer cuisine, which is similar to Thai cuisine but less spicy and more fragrant. At the end of your course, enjoy the fruits of your labour and indulge with your own prepared lunch!
