Cambodia: Khmer Cooking Class

We love food more than anything. Simply for us life is about food and therefore there is no traveling without a lot of food. it is nice to learn some local recipes from locals but why not to try a cooking class? When in Siem Reap we decided to try Tigre de Papier. Itis right on Pub Street and for a decent price you get to try preparing three courses you choose from the menu and of course, you eat them at the end. To be hones I wouldn't go to a cooking class where i cannot eat what I've cooked, haha. 

Again, we were lucky (yeah, we were lucky during the whole gap year, until Bali, haha). Usually this cooking class can be bit crowded but this day it was only us and an American couple. A cute Cambodian cooking master (able to hold this class in English or French, of course) took us to a local market first.

It was super nice to see a local market and have a proper introduction of all the strange things we would never know how to use, where to find them etc. All the ingredient were already bought so we did not have to waste time with that.
We decided to make fried shrimp spring rolls, samlor machou khroeung (no, dont worry I cannot pronounce it either) and fried banana.
