Traditional Khmer Cooking Class in Phuket – Recreate Delicious Khmer Dishes in Your Own Kitchen!

The exploration and indulgence of the cuisine of a place of travel is undoubtedly an integral component of experiencing its culture. As the cuisine is derived and shaped from the natural surroundings of the resident communities, it often provides a unique insight into the cultural and historic practices of such people, their beliefs, and of course, some unique and delicious twists on produce. Just as the European continent and especially France is predominantly known for their delicious pastries and sauces, the Asian continent contributes to the enhancement of flavour through the introduction and cultivation of various spices that often contribute an additional dimension to a dining experience. As a result, many tourists and travellers seek out and enjoy local delicacies in an effort to immerse themselves in their culture and the dedicated few even seek to learn to recreate such dishes when they return home.

When visiting Phuket, in Thailand, an excellent way to do so is to sign up for a cooking class at a restaurant in Siem Reap. However, since such restaurants will only offer to teach one or two iconic dishes, tourists should also consider requesting their hotel or resort to conduct a short lesson for them. If your resort does not offer such a service, consider paying a visit to Anantara Angkor Resort which does, in fact, they offer a Traditional Khmer Cooking Class at their Spice Spoons Cooking School.

During such a cookery lesson, amateur cooks will visit a local market and be guided in the selection of produce for cooking and then experienced chefs will allow them to select and design their own menu. Prior to the commencement of the cookery class, guests will be given an insight into the cuisine and the types of implements used as well, thus ensuring a well-rounded culinary experience for the participants. Such a class is well worth the investment and the skills gained are priceless.
