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
