Overview

Cooking classes, food tours and private dining experiences in the heart of Phnom Penh. Experience authentic Khmer cuisine, and learn about Cambodian culture from local chef Veasna Kay. Veasna in the Kitchen doesn’t offer your average Cambodian food tour. Our private dining experiences are the perfect opportunity to treat your taste buds to the true flavours of Cambodia. Or, if you’d like a more ‘hands-on’ experience, we offer a cooking class and food tour where you can learn to prepare simple, healthy Khmer dishes that are, most importantly, delicious! Cooking classes and dining experiences are typically held in our spacious, air-conditioned apartment overlooking the Tonle Sap River in the center of Phnom Penh. We want you to feel like you’re visiting friends, not going on a tour. Or, if you have a special venue in mind, we can come to you. Veasna is a trained, professional chef with a passion for great food, and for sharing that food with visitors to Cambodia. This is your chance to have dinner cooked by a skilled chef, specifically tailored to meet your tastes. You won’t find a friendlier chef, offering a more tailored private dining menu or cooking class!

As an expat in Phnom Penh, I wanted to gain some insider cooking knowledge after eating so much delicious local food. Veasna's cooking class seemed like the ideal fit, versus the bigger, less personal and more routine-seeming options in the city. As promised, Veasna is...More

We really enjoyed our cooking class with Veasna. He started by taking us through a nearby market to get all the ingredients we would need to make fish amok, banana leaf wrapped fish, and ginger frog legs. He was an excellent guide in the market,...More

It's located along riverside in the heart of Phnom Penh and surrounded by several local markets which you can shortly walk there to buy all fresh vegetables and ingredients. Veasna can show you how to make your own curry or Amok paste that Cambodian people...More

As others have mentioned, Veasna was very accommodating. We had a group of 6 of whom only 3 wanted to cook. We went to the market, bought the ingredients and when we pointed or asked questions he threw in those items to taste. We cooked,...More

I did a one-on-one cooking course with Veasna. Typically, he teaches groups of at least two, but if you're the type who prefers one-on-one tutoring he'll oblige. I wanted a hands-on, immersive experience, and very much got what I signed up for. If you'd prefer...More
