You should take this cooking class! My husband and I had a free morning, so we signed up. My husband likes to try new food, but he doesn't ever cook, so I wasn't certain he would enjoy the class. He had a great time! There were two other couples in the class. The home is set up perfectly for us to prepare the food outside and dine outside. It is April, yet under the covering with ceiling fans we were not too hot. We each had choices of what to make for our four courses. After a tour of the market by Huot and a visit around the kitchen garden by Chanvatey we washed up and started cooking. (Please forgive me for making any mistake on the names.) Chanvatey was well prepared and gave good instructions. Everyone had room to work around the cook space, and everyone had plenty to do. You could make choices, like more sweet or less garlic, but mostly we all followed Chanvatey's directions. Hoat took photos as we worked, and sent them to us afterwards. The food was so delicious!

It was such an informative and fun experience to go to the local markets and learn about all the different vegetables/meats that are local to Cambodia vs. imported and how they are used. The instructors were very friendly and professional and always checked to see if we were happy with what we cooked and by god was it fragrant and delicious. I know a lot of people do food tours but being able to cook some local dishes is invaluable knowledge you can then take back home with you and re-experience such a memorable trip. 100% recommend!

I was the only one join the course. They picked up fm the hotel on time. Before start cooking visited local market. I cooked 4 easy and delicious dishes. I recommend all people visiting Seamreap if u feel had enough of Angkor wat. Nice family own place. Thank you very much.

A great experience - so well organised, all the people are very friendly, Sivon is a wonderful teacher (and excellent with our 12 year old). Delicious food - highly recommend! Hot tip - do not eat breakfast before going!! So much food!!

Was an amazing local experience the flavor, the people, the tuktuk and the tour around the local market was unique. When they said that you are gonna cook with local it’s 100% true. I really really recommended this experience
