Know More about this tour

After pickup from Siem Reap hotels by tuk tuk, head to a nearby village for a short tour of the local community.
During the approximate 15-minute drive, you may see farmers returning from the rice fields, spot buffalo or oxcarts, get a glimpse of traditional homes, and see some of the fruits and vegetables that grow in the area. You can even look inside someone’s kitchen and check out the charcoal pot used to cook an entire family meal.
Once you've seen the village, head to the lovely venue that hosts your cooking class. Your guide takes you into the herb garden to show you some commonly used culinary herbs and to collect some fresh ones for tonight’s dishes.
Then begin your class, following along as your cooking teacher shows you how to prepare an appetizer, main course and dessert, as well as your choice of a cocktail or herbal tea. You’ll work at your own cooking station and learn simple presentation techniques that will impress the guests at your next dinner party. Dishes may change, but a sample menu might consist of mango salad, fish amok (a traditional Cambodian dish) and bananas cooked with palm sugar.
When the preparation is over, you have time to relax with your classmates on the tranquil dining pavilion while the professional staff puts the final touches on your meal. Sip your cocktail or herbal tea next to the tropical garden as you watch the sunset.
Then sit down to dinner! Savor the tasty dishes you made, and receive a copy of the recipes to take home with you.
Your tour ends with hotel drop-off back in Siem Reap.

  • Sophia was wonderful. Her knowledge, patience, and friendly spirit made this an unforgettable experience.

  • Very average tour. Was meant to be a 4 hour tour but ours barely lasted 3 hours. We were the only ones on it and we were supposed to visit a village which didn't happen. When we got to the cooking it was disorganised.

  • Our guide and chef Sophia was so lovely. we made some fabulous meals in a very clean setting, both my daughter and i were very impressed. would recommend this to anyone who loves food.

  • This cooking class was excellent! the countryside was beautiful. We really appreciated the tour of the neighboring village as we met an absolutely beautiful woman who was gracious enough to show us how she prepares dinner for her family. The meal we learned to make was delicious and we learned new techniques for cooking Khmer food.

  • One of the best activities we've done in Sieam Reap. We were a bit unlucky and couldn't visit the city because it started raining very strongly. They managed to pick us up and take us to the cooking place. It was very beautiful, we could cook a wide range of typical Cambodian dishes with every detailed step explained. At the end they gave us the printed recipes and also prepared a dinner with our own dishes. Recommended activity in the island.

  • This was an absolutely outstanding experience. Will do it again when we return to Cambodia. Our guide / chef - Soppi? - made the class very memorable - as did the setting which is set in a well manicured and laid out garden adjacent to local villages. Brilliant. Thank you Soppi.
