After roaming the local market for ingredients we prepared and cooked three delicious dishes with smoking pot before eating them in the calm and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely something special to remember from our couple of days in Battambang.

Amazing experience that will give you a taste (pun intended) of local culture as well as cooking. Van shows you around the market and entertains any and all “what is that??” questions. Then he walks you through the village where you can really see the day to day lives of local people. And if that isn’t enough, then you get to cook three different Khmer dishes right in Van’s home. I have never had the experience of cooking outside in open air with portable woks - it was so much fun. He is accommodating to any dietary restrictions and he makes sure that everything is very clean and sanitary. This is a cooking experience unlike anything else and so worth it. Highly recommend!

Vannak’s class is a must-do in Battambang! Everything was delicious and logistics were so easy. Vannak was very responsive over email and picked us up from our hostel in town right on time at 9am. From there we went to his local market, outside of town where all his neighbors go. After purchasing all your ingredients from the market Vannak asks if you want to walk to his home (where you’ll be cooking) or take a tuk tuk. We highly recommend the walk! It’s just 20 minutes, nice and flat, and you get to learn about all the fruit trees and other produce that is grown and later sold in the market. We made three delicious dishes and can’t wait to try it at home - he even emails you the recipe after. The way you learn to cook here is 100% traditional, which we wouldn’t have had from a cooking class in the center of town. With Vannak, you cook from a clay/charcoal stove, make coconut milk from scratch, make your own banana leaf bowl for the fish amok. Lastly, I recommend booking the class directly through Vannak’s website - all inquiries are sent directly to him and he is so helpful and quick to respond. Thank you Vannak!

We had a wonderful experience visiting the Smokin’ Pot cooking school and hanging out with Vannak! Visiting a village market, touring through neighborhood farms, and cooking using completely authentic techniques were all a bonus to the delicious courses we prepared. Strongly recommend visiting Vannak for his good cheer and guidance.

Vannak is a great cook. He took us to a local community market which is much more nicer than the buisy town markets. You get more time to discover each product you get. The outdoor kitchen at his place is super clean and you will learn to do everything by yourself (such as coconut milk FROM SCRATCH). Note that the price includes pick up with a tuktuk at your hotel. 100% RECOMMENDED
