If you ever visit a Cambodian home, you’ll most likely hear the following question: Nyum Bai noh? It means “Have you eaten yet?” It’s a gesture to guests wishing them to be full and happy when they leave. Seri Chao of Seri Cooks will share that same feeling of love through food in this class on Khmer cuisine and culture.
In this program you’ll learn all about making kreung, a classic Khmer paste using turmeric, lemongrass, galangal, garlic, and makrut lime leaves. It is the foundation for many authentic Cambodian recipes, and the two dishes participants will get to try are salaw machu kreung (hot and sour soup) and sach ko jakak (lemongrass beefsticks).
