During my trip to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I was looking to visit a village nearby to do some cooking and eating and learn about the culture. So after doing some research, I came across OBT Chiro Village in Kampong Cham, not too far away from Phnom Penh. Although by distance it was quite close, because the roads are not fantastic, it takes about 2 hours to arrive. We arrived at about 8 am.
The OBT Chiro Village is sponsored by a local Cambodian NGO that educates and empowers children in the village. And they have helped to bring electricity and running water to the village, that sits along the banks of the Mekong River, not far from Kampong Cham, Cambodia.
We were greeted by our host family, and as soon as we arrived, we headed over to the main Kampong Cham market to do some shopping for the Cambodian food cooking we were going to do. The market was fantastic, huge, but friendly, and stocked full of fresh ingredients and lots and lots of fruit. The prices were so cheap as well. We bought many of the supplies we needed.
After a fully loaded tuk tuk ride back to Chiro Village to start cooking!
Along with a couple of different Cambodian dishes, the main dish the family cooked was Khmer curry, a mixture of spices and herbs, pounded into a paste, and cooked along with coconut milk and both pork and chicken. The curry was not very spicy, but had a wonderful lemongrass flavor, and the fresh coconut milk was fantastic.
It was a great experience, and we had an amazing time cooking, eating, and visiting with the host family. Thank you!
Here’s how much I paid:
Price – $22 USD per person for cooking and eating
Roundtrip private taxi from Phnom Penh – $100 USD
