Full description
Always dreamed of being a Cambodian chef? This is your chance! Your Siem Reap cooking class will take place out of the town, in the heart of a traditional Cambodian community. We’ll take a mini tour through a local village, where you’ll get to see locals going about their daily lives. Your local guide will tell you a bit about daily life and introduce you to some of the many fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. You’ll also see local houses and get to peek inside a kitchen (where you can imagine what it’s like to cook an entire family meal on a charcoal pot).

You’ll arrive at the lovely cooking venue (complete with charming herb garden) close to sunset. Your guide will show you some local herbs and you’ll get to collect a few to use in this evening’s dishes. Then scrub up and get ready to cook! Your cooking experience is very hands-on; your guide will teach you a few tricks and techniques for preparing the ingredients, but everything is done by you. You’ll prepare a starter, a main, and a dessert, as well as a cocktail or herbal tea, depending on your choice. You’ll also learn some simple presentation techniques — perfecting for impressing friends back home with your awesome talents at your next dinner party.

Now is the perfect time to taste-test the foods you have lovingly cooked today. So settle in and enjoy your fresh, tasty Khmer creation. Our professional team will serve your dishes and you can finally savour the flavours of your labour! Best of all, if you love what you made, your staff will help you replicate it at home — you’ll get a recipe card to take back with you.
