After breakfast, the driver will collect you from the hotel and take you to the cooking school, renowned in the city for offering authentic and delicious cuisine. On arrival, the professional culinary team will warmly welcome you into their gastronomic domain and will explain the programme for the morning. Depending on the season, usually a starter and a main course are on the menu.
After being shown to your own cooking station, the chef will explain the techniques and how to use the various ingredients. Then it is time to roll up your sleeves and don an apron. Under the close guidance of the chef and the talented culinary team, you will learn how to transform raw ingredients into tasty, authentic Khmer dishes. For lunch, you finally get to sit down and relax while sampling the fruits of your labour — delicious dishes cooked by yourself!
After eating, it is time to thank the team and chef for a wonderful morning. The return transfer is not included, so this gives you the opportunity to spend some time browsing the shop for cook books and accessories – which make great souvenirs to take home.
