Cambodia Cooking Class
It is always wonderful to return from your time abroad with a skill you didn't have when you left home in the first place - and the Cambodia Cooking Class, one of Phnom Penh's most popular tourist attractions, offers tourists to Cambodia the chance to do just that. Khmer cuisine distinguishes itself from Thai and Vietnamese cuisine with its delicate use of spices and aromatic herbs, used to create finely-balanced flavours that run the gamut from sweetness, to saltiness, sourness and spiciness. The Cambodia Cooking Class is operated from the Frizz Restaurant in downtown Phnom Penh, and prides itself on a 'small classes, maximum attention' philosophy (space is limited to 16 participants per day). During the full day lesson (9am to 4pm), visitors will learn to prepare a full-course Khmer meal, as well as learning useful tips about the blending of spices and the decorative aspects of Cambodian cuisine. Included in the price is transportation to and from the restaurant, a visit to the market to buy ingredients, and a full-colour recipe booklet, so you can try your new culinary skills on your friends and family once you return home. You also get to eat the delicious meal you produce in a beautiful riverside setting.
