    Lilys Secret Garden

    April 21, 2018 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We talked about taking a cooking class when we were over here. It’s a good way to meet people but also to learn the culture and, well, get better at cooking, and so you can make the same dishes you love here, at home.
    Jackie found an awesome home cooking class, that, turns out is literally right behind the hotel, two streets over, called Lily’s Secret Garden. The place is run by Lily, a Cambodian chef as far as we can tell, and her husband Chris, a Belgian who has a flare for business, maybe.
    Chris picked us up in a tuktuk at our hotel and took us to the local market to buy the ingredients for whatever we were cooking. This is the market where only locals shop...astounding place. We took our groceries to Lily’s to meet the chef. I think we all thought she was the one doing the cooking class. They had another character, Darwin, a Cambodian with a great sense of humour. Also a chef at a local high end restaurant.
    Stay tuned for an invite to Cambodian night.
