Tips for you
this is the most insight experience i had in cambodia.linna is super-friendly and willing to explain as much as she could. she will take you to the market, will introduce you to the local food (had my husband desperately looking for some fried spiders luckily nowhere to be seen...) and then will take you back to the school (beautiful!) you will prepare your food and she is going to tell you off when needed!!! we prepared the green mango salad and the pineapple fish and chicken soup... YUM YUM!!! i had my little daughter with us... and hubby was a newby to any kind of cooking. we all loved it!
While visiting my son in Phnom Penh he and his wife arranged a cooking class at Linna's for my sister, himself and me. Linna was absolutely delightful. From the moment she greeted us at our tuktuk with open arms to the time she sent us away with food to share, her energy, enthusiasm and creativity entertained and enthralled us!We had a madcap romp through the market tasting local fruit, some of which we purchased for our dessert. Back at fhe school our first task was making spring rolls which we enjoyed as an appetizer. We then proceeded into the clean, professionally appointed kitchen to prepare a delicious pineapple soup and green mango salad. Two of us are vegetarians and she cheerfully adapted the recipes for us. Linna was able to communicate clearly in English with us throughout the lesson.We would heartily recommend Linna's class to anyone looking for an interesting and engaging way to experience Khmer culture for a few hours!
We took a tuktuk to the culinary school and were originally nervous about them finding it, but we were provided with a map and phone number for the driver that made it easy to find and Linna was out waiting for us upon arrival!The trip to the market was one of my favorite and most interesting experiences in all of Cambodia. Many of the foods you have seen but Linna tells you all about them and gets various things for you to try there! We had fried bananas, steamed peanuts, different fruits, a rice and mango patty (unknown name.. Haha) and gained lots of information.She is very bubbly and friendly and very willing to help and even tease you if you struggle in culinary arts (like myself) but ultimately she wants you to have a fun experience! You wear an apron and cook in a BEAUTIFUL kitchen area that is very updated and so nice! It has many floors and you eat your feast with a tree top view, it is hard to believe the busy city is just a road below!She has gone to culinary school and helps you prepare delicious foods, and even boxed up what we couldn't eat to bring back to our hotel.Would recommend! if you are considering, just book it!Enjoy!
