Cooking class? Yes, I’m serious and I think its fun learning to cook. Not just the typical meal but a Khmer-ian meal! Initially when I told Mei Sim about his plan, I was afraid that she wouldn’t join, but she was as equally excited as me! Yipee. Sara and Hong Tzu wasn’t interested at all so they went massage without us. Haha.
You will be given a choice to cook One Appetizer and One Main Course. And we got to choose from the many selections in their Menu!
Mei Sim choosing the dish of her choice.
Me sweating while browsing the menu on the dishes.
Inside the restaurant in a super hot afternoon
The bar counter. =D
ATM in the restaurant, how cool is that?
Next we inform our “teacher” on the dish that we really like, then she’ll bring us to the local market (Pasar la..) to tell us what raw ingredients we need for our respective dish. I thought their market was cool. Its situated inside some rows of shops. =)
The lady in pink shirt is our cooking “teacher” explaining the ingredients needed for our dish
Weird stuff like this can be easily found in Siem Reap’s market. That is the poor turtle
Guess what is this. It took us days to figure it out! Its actually fish (de-boned) and they dried it out
Blood-y fish anyone?
There’s even ready-cut onion!
Fruits for you?
Don’t you think this looks like our version of Putu Mayam?
Oh, there’s even tailor right in the middle of the market. Cool, no?
After the market trip, we went back to Le Tigre de Papier Restaurant (first floor) and ready to be cook! There were two groups learning to cook that day. Most of them are foreigners and I only spotted one Malaysian in the other group. =)
As you can see from the picture, they are men that learn cooking, ok? Hehe
Mei Sim all out to learn!
The raw ingredients prepared accordingly to the dish that we choose

Its not easy to cook and take picture at the same time, so just to show some la.

And voila! Now I know how to make Fresh Spring Roll!
