I was looking for an evening cooking class, as I am a chef and love to learn about the local cuisine when travelling, and don't particularly care for all the bells and whistle added on when taking a full-day class. Paper Tiger provided a great evening option, and so after a day of temple-hopping, we arrived at the restaurant, chose our menu to cook, indulged in a welcome drink, and then headed upstairs to get cooking. Turns out, we are the only students who have signed up this evening, and so have the pleasure of a private class with our teacher, Sang, who is quick, funny, and impressed that we can do more than just chop vegetables, so she puts us to work. We get to each choose a starter and main course to make, plus one dessert between the two of us, and we make it count, by picking the most typically Cambodian dishes available. First, we get to tour the neighboring market with Sang, who points out all the dried and fresh spices we will use, local vegetables we might not know about, fruits that we have seen at street vendor stalls. She takes us to a sweets vendor, who works with sticky rice and coconut milk, and helps us pick out some locally produced coffee to bring home. I enjoyed the chance to see the ingredients at the market, and the chance to ask questions to Sang. This tour will make our future market visits less daunting, and we will know what we are looking at! I have to say, I am impressed with the level of involvement we have in the class, but that might just be Sang playing to our capabilities. Sure, we chop the vegetables for our dishes, and the aromatics to pound into curry paste, and of course we roll filling into rice paper for fried Cambodian spring rolls, but she also has me cook the curry paste with coconut milk, with the fish and noni leaf for the fish amok, and my husband makes the seasoning and sauce and beef for his beef lok lac. He fries the spring rolls, while I toss a green mango salad. Every step, Sang is over our shoulder, explaining what needs to be done next, but letting us do all the work. With the exception of cooking the rice(thank goodness), and platting the final dishes, we actually made EVERYTHING we got to eat for dinner. And oh my was it ever DELICIOUS! But it was a lot of food, and though we ate everything to not insult our teacher, we were absolutely STUFFED by the end of supper, and basically had to waddle back to the hotel, just to fall into a food coma. Things to remember: come prepared to cook! This is no demonstration, this is a full-on cooking class. Also, come with an appetite! You will eat SO MUCH tasty food, and you will not want to leave any on the plate. Trust me. In a sea of cooking class options in Siem Reap, go with a sure-fire option, and book your class at the Paper Tiger. They also have full day classes.

You start with a short trip to a nearby market and return to the class area on the second floor. The teacher explains everything in great detail and demonstrates how to make each dish. The food is somewhat like Thai food without the spice and are more complex than I had imagined.

My wife and I did the market walk and cooking class at the Paper Tiger (a restaurant on Pub Street) recently. We had done a cooking class in Thailand a few days earlier and it was very interesting to get a feel for how Thai and Khmer cuisine varies. Sovoeun took us for a brief tour of the food market, down the block from the restaurant. She explained local food traditions and helped us identify the many ingredients that are simply so foreign to us. With Savoeun's guidance we prepared curry pastes for a choice of curries, spring rolls, green mango salad and a banana dessert, all of which was then artfully served in banana leaf bowls with tropical flower accents. My only (small) criticism is that each participant does not get their own cooking station, so you have to take turns. Having said that, I would recommend this class, whether you are a clueless cook, or an accomplished cook. You will learn something, make delicious food and leave with a full tummy!

After a day of running around the temples, we wanted evening activities to occuopy ourselves. It was a great class, we’ve done a few in Asia and this is one of the best. The chef Channy was so personable, patient and kind. We learnt a lot in her class despite being good cooks ourselves. We learnt to carve a few vegetables ans made the most anazing dishes. We loved it. We highly recommend this class. The visit to the market is lovely and short but as you will know where the market is, you can visit any other time. Channy even bought us some sweet rice goodies from the market to sample. Totaly good value too.
