Create amazing Cambodian cuisine in this fully hands on class. Held in a beautiful village pavilion with personal cooking stations. Max of 6 people. Learn about Khmer cooking customs and superstitions and meet a village family to learn about cooking in Cambodian homes.
We learned to make 3 things - green mango salad, fish amok, sticky rice balls with sugar palm.
The chef and her assistant are were nice and patient in teaching us.
A tuktuk picked us up from the hotel and drove us to the village, where we first visited a local family, before we started to learn more about typical Cambodian cuisine.
They also recommend you different ingredients in case you can't find them back home.
There were lots on offer in town with a visit to a market, but this one was out of town in a lovely rural setting.
The cooking place was very clean and organised, a nice relaxed atmosphere
Cambodian Cultural Village is a wonderful place for anyone who is interested in the Cambodia architecture, culture and art as well as the local life.
I do not recommend going before noon. They have shows and most of them are in the afternoon.
Most of the locations in the village are just mimicking attractions in the area
There is a lot of walking but you can pay to have a cart drive you around.
Arrive in time for the first show at 3.25pm and you will basically spend the afternoon walking with the crowd from venue to venue watching all the shows until the finale show at 7pm (finale is only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays)
