True to Backstreet Academy's unique identity, we offer a cooking class like no other. Keeping the authenticity intact, you will enter a Khmer household and see how Cambodian cuisine is created and appreciated by the locals. Cambodian cuisine is artful and complex at the same time, and the locals know how to best achieve the highest form of cooking with their spices and herbs. Choose from a wide variety of local dishes and treat your palate to a full course meal starting with an appetizer, a soup, a main and a dessert. Note: The experience provided by Backstreet Academy is one that is balanced between providing an inside access to local cooking which is in contrast to Khmer food prepared in restaurants. As such we balance between maintaining a local ambiance and truly local flavors while maintaining an exceptionally high standard of hygiene. A visit to the market is included.
