I signed up this class in "beyond" in down Old Market. There are usually 1-6 student in a class. On that day it was only me in the class, like a private class! :) A tuktuk took me from downtown to Sojourn Villa, spectecular environment there. The class assistant and chef are very nice. I learnt Khmer curry, Spring roll,... More

Whenever we travel, we love visiting local food markets, though we rarely have the means the cook anything, so we're mostly just "window shopping." What made this tour so fun was the market component, where our guide showed us ingredients we'd be using in the cooking class. We did not get into the nitty-gritty details of selecting ingredients or chatting... More

Our guide Lucky2 was great. He was friendly and had a good sense of humour. He also is a great cook. He took him time showing us around the markets and spoke about all ingredients we used. Everyone in the class participated and we all got good food and a recipe book to take home. No complaints here.

This was a great experience. A great way to experience Cambodian cooking and markets. The guide, Song, was friendly and helpful. The food we cooked was very tasty, including best Amok I've had so far in PP. We did full day course and are glad we did.

We did the half day course which was a reasonably priced 12 dollars. In the morning we arrived at Frizz restaurant and were taken via prepaid (included in price of course) tuk tuk to a local market. The chef taught us lots about the fruit, vegetables and other food at the market. She was very friendly and charismatic and I... More

We are confused by the negative reviews. Those seemed to be relating to a male instructor, which we had a female, I can't remember her name though. The visit to the market was interesting because you learned about the food and see how Cambodians start their days by shopping for their meals. It seemed very interesting to the people who... More

We were really looking forward to this class but unfortunately it turn out quite disappointing. Although we were a small group of five it seems that the guide/chef wasn't really interested in giving a cooking class. The market tour was quick and dull and many questions we had remain unanswered. During the class itself the guide kept on disappearing and... More

We did the all day course and it was excellent. The market was very interesting and the cooking course was great with much student participation. The teacher was excellent and entertaining. I would recommend this course if you want to learn about Kmer food. It was good value for money.

A great and good value cooking course, that includes a trip to the market. The food you make is traditional and absolutely delicious, and it's a proper hands on cooking class. The fish amok is to die for and the mango with sticky rice is exquisite. Oh my god I'm still drooling.
