More About This Experience

Cambodia offers up an amazing culinary experience, a foodies' paradise waiting to be discovered. Its hard to imagine why the Khmer cuisine is not as popular as its neighboring Thai and Vietnamese cuisines - and while Beef Loc Lac and Fish Amok stand as the two most notable dishes, they hardly represent the full breadth and depth of the culinary journey of Cambodia. So how does one get truly familiar with the local fare? Simply do as the locals do as the saying goes, and it couldn't be truer in this case. This foodie's paradise tour was born out of our sheer passion of our local experts on the ground, steering away completely from pub street and even the sight of a menu. The tour will start with a cooking class hosted by Ratank, an ordinary local with an extraordinary skills in the kitchen. You can expect to get behind the scenes of a local Khmer household and get an intimate access into how the locals appreciate Cambodian cuisine. and its flavors The cooking class will be accompanied with a visit to a vibrant local market. While lunch settles in, we've thought about just the perfect foodie's activity - shopping! Our next host, Soy, will help you navigate through Psar Leu, Siem Reap's largest local market where we will look for a variety of exotic tropical fruits, snacks (of the sweet and savory kind) and many more delights. This shopping experience will also be melded into with a tour of Siem Reap's street food. Soy will guide you through the best the streets have to offer and select only the most hygienic stalls and vendors. Finally, our favorite end-of-the-day activity, Khmer Spice Cocktail workshop, will bring to full circle this ultimate foodie experience and mark the beginning of your love affair with Khmer cuisine. Pari and her sister, pioneers of Khmer cocktails will show you how to cleverly concoct stunning cocktails using Cambodian spices, herbs, roots and infused rice wine. You'll be amazed at how they can meld together to create new flavors you would never have imagined in a drink.
