This month the travel link up topic is all about food! Anyone who knows me knows that I love food and wont back down from unusual foods.
I did want to write about the time I ate cricket – but I am not savvy enough to get the video from my Facebook onto my blog, so instead I thought I would touch on my cooking experience in Siem Reap.
At The Corner on Pub Street, 3 of us from my Intrepid tour group, were set up with our own cooking stations for our 4 course meal.
We went with the chef to the local market for some fresh ingredients and our first course we attempted was a Banana Flower Salad with chicken.
At first, the taste was a bit peculiar, but I started to enjoy it and of course ate most of it except the leaf.. and the mint.
Our next course Sam Lor Koh Koo which is similar to a vegetarian curry poured over steamed rice.
The main course was Steamed Fish Amok in Banana Leaf. I am not a fish eater so was able to substitute the fish with chicken. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try our hand and forming the banana leaf bowl as they were pre made.
To finish off, we made Banana sago in coconut milk for dessert, which was superb.
