Cambodian food has a millennium of tradition. To unravel its mysteries, you must immerse yourself in the ancient atmosphere of the long-ago kingdom of Angkor. Angkor was an advanced empire, with large, prosperous cities that were home to an extremely large population compared to the European cities of the time. Discover the spiritual background of Khmer cuisine with Paper Tiger Eatery.
The highly-spiritual Khmer population has a unique identity you can learn more about through Cambodian cuisine. Cooking is an oral art, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation as part of a wide range of ancestral rites. Learning how to cook Khmer dishes entails grasping the essence of the Khmers, through stories of ancient times and spiritual traditions.
Cambodian cuisine is based on respecting nature and your body as a temple, which is why it uses natural fresh ingredients. Tourists in Cambodia are usually taken aback by the wide variety of vegetables and fish available in the local markets. Cambodian cooking has incorporated foreign influences throughout the millennia, which have enriched its array of tastes and tangs. For instance, the prominent use of soy, noodles, and the steaming method originate from China, while the beloved curries are reminiscent of Indian cuisine.
These international influences help to create an expensive range of palate-stimulating contrasting flavors. While Cambodian dishes are based on contrasts, these contrasts blend harmoniously into delicious and original meals.
Cambodian dishes can be at the same time sour and sweet, cold and hot, crunchy and soft. Khmer dishes are a feast for the eyes, not just for the taste buds because the fresh ingredients are uniquely arranged to emphasize their vibrant colors. From bright-red curry to emerald-green peas, white noodles or yellow banana flowers, the blend of these vibrant colors is thought to offer a more subtle aroma to the meal.
All those are good reasons to enroll in a cooking workshop at the Paper Tiger Eatery. The experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly chefs can show you all the intricacies of buying and preparing Cambodian food in a friendly environment.
