Cambodian Cooking Class in Battambang

by Samuel on April 17, 2013

In this travel video we head over to Nary’s Kitchen for a special Khmer cooking course learning how to make Cambodian cuisine such as Amok, Lok Lak and Spring Rolls. Our class first began with a trip to a local wet market where we loaded up on cooking supplies as well as learned about the different kinds of ingredients used in typical Khmer cooking. Upon returning we ventured straight into the kitchen where we spent the next two hours preparing food, cooking and ultimately serving up our own tasty meals consisting of Amok, Lok Lak and deep fried spring rolls. One of the most fascinating aspects of the cooking course had to do with making our own curry paste. We pounded away in a stone bowl with a mortar for nearly 10 minutes to get the perfect consistency. We both really enjoyed the level of detail provided by our cooking hosts Toot and Nary. Overall, this was an excellent experience and for $10 it also represented great value for our backpacking budget lifestyle. We highly recommend you check it out.
