This is a genuine gem! Vannak's cooking lesson was probably one of the best things I have done on any holiday, anywhere. We emailed him the afternoon before and he responded within an hour. Be wary of booking through hostels - he seemed genuinely surprised to see us after having 4 groups from our hostel cancel in the last week... More

This is a must-do if you are visiting Battambang. Our teacher took us on his motorbike to the local market to choose what we wanted to make and buy the ingredients - a really interesting way to see the markets. We then went to his house to cook Fish Amok and a lemongrass chicken dish, both were the tastiest dishes... More

We came here 2 nights ago for dinner. Although it was late and they were due to close they made us feel very welcome. The owner speaks good English and so does one of his daughters who served us. We had the fish amok and chicken loklak. Both were really tasty and filling. This is such a nice friendly place... More

My friend and I were taken on the back of his bike to the local market where we were encouraged to learn and pick out our own veg and fish! We were able to choose the dishes we wanted and it was wonderfully taught with patience and enthusiasm. Honestly one of the best things I did on my month of... More

Battambang isn't full of a million things to do so we thought we give a cooking class a go as it would be something a bit different to do! We went to the markets first to buy the ingredients for the cooking class (in the morning, the ingredients will be fresher). We were told what all the different veges and... More

Were were only with the two of us but that was no problem! We could pick the dishes our self. We decided to do some together and some separately. The best thing for us about this class is that it is organized by a local who does not only take you to the local market but also to his own... More

DO THE SMOKIN' POT COOKERY COURSE!! It is amazing and one of my major highlights from my travels so far. Not only is he a great chef, but he is a very interesting and kind man who has extensive knowledge on the best ingredients to use and how to cook to unlock the best flavors. First he took us to...
