Cambodia Cooking Class on TV

The Cambodia Cooking Class in Phnom Penh has been featured on many television programmes.

One of them was a feature filmed for Associated Press Television. TV stations all over the world can buy this program from AP to include in their own schedules. We only know of the feature being broadcast on the Chinese CCTV9 and the Khmer channel of Voice of America TV. You can view the VOA version online, but you need a fast internet connection.
