Prepping for tonight’s cooking class @ Bric-à-Brac here in Battambang. Always different recipes, depending on market produce. Today the cooking bananas are superb, as are wing beans, oyster mushrooms, okra & baby corn. Recipes from The Burma Cookbook. (We won’t compete with budding Khmer cooking school entrepreneurs.)
Hill station oyster mushrooms, tofu salad, grilled corn & okra, pomello w/ tamarind & coconut sauce, and for dessert bananas poached in pandan-imbued coconut cream.
Dining: We close our Boutique early, set the 19th century banquet table in the middle of the showroom & feast. Come stay with us, as classes exclusively for our hotel guests. A German & Swiss couple, plus Lane College fund-raising winning auction bidders, coming all the way from Eugene Oregon.
