Cookin’ Curry

Cookin’ Curry Cooking in class at Nary’s Kitchen. Battambang, Cambodia.

Fresh Squeezed Coconut Milk

Fresh Squeezed Coconut Milk At this cooking class in Battambang, Cambodia, we made everything from scratch including fresh coconut milk.  At the farmers market we got shredded coconut that we, wrapped in a cheese cloth, doused with a little bit of hot water, and then squeezed the milk out by hand.  So good and so easy…if only there were places in the states to get cheap, fresh, shredded coconut…the canned version comes nowhere close to this in terms of flavor.

Curry Basics

Curry Basics With time to kill in Battambang, Cambodia, I decided to take  a cooking class that I saw advertised on a board outside of my hotel – 5 hours of cooking for $8…best deal ever!  The class began with a field trip to the market (see previous photos).  This photo is of the ingredients we picked up to make  curry: chili, kaffir lime leaf, galangal, fresh turmeric, garlic, lemon grass, and fingerroot.  Using these ingredients we made fresh curry paste from scratch…probably some of the most amazing food I have ever had.

Rubber Chickens?

Rubber Chickens? Maybe I haven’t seen a ton of dead chickens before but these all looked like the gag chicken clowns use. Battambang, Cambodia.

Chicken In A Bag

Chicken In A Bag Normally when I get chicken in a bag from the market I can find it in the deli section and it’s roasted.  That was not the case with this pre-packaged live chicken at the farmers market in Battambang, Cambodia.

Expression

Expression Her expression says it all.  I loved this photo so much that while I was traveling I turned it into a postcard and sent it to friends.  The expression on the little girl’s face left a strong impression on me and says a lot about what’s going on.  If you look down you can see that she was selling frogs…probably the last thing a little girl wants to do let alone work endless hours eking by trying to make ends meet. Battambang, Cambodia.

Fresh Noodles

Fresh Noodles Ohhhhh lord….Nothing better than walking through a local market and ogling fresh food at every turn.  As an avid noodle lover I was salivating at the sight of these fresh noodles. Battambang, Cambodia.
