Cooking class prep Bric-à-Brac. Exclusive to our B&B clients preparing recipes from “The Burma Cookbook“. There are several Khmer owner cooking schools in Battambang, so we deliberately avoid teaching Cambodian recipes so as not to unfairly compete with local budding entrepreneurs.

I love the resulting mosaic of colours & textures.
