Description

Visit the countryside outside Siem Reap for a hands-on Khmer cooking class and a chance to witness rural life in Cambodia. You'll tour a local village and glimpse the kitchen in a traditional home, and then head to a cooking school situated in a charming indoor-outdoor venue. A professional chef teaches you the secrets to making three delicious Khmer dishes while you help prepare the meal. Afterward, have time to relax on the garden pavilion at sunset before enjoying the feast that you made. This 4-hour activity is limited to 12 for a small-group experience with your guide.

Always dreamed of being a Cambodian chef? This is your chance! Your Siem Reap cooking class will begin at a temple ruin in the middle of the community. We’ll take a mini tour through a local village, where you’ll get to see locals returning from the rice fields, and maybe buffalo and ox carts being led by their owners. Your local guide will tell you a bit about daily life and introduce you to some of the many fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. You’ll also see local houses and get to peek inside a kitchen (where you can imagine what it’s like to cook an entire family meal on a charcoal pot). 

You’ll arrive at our lovely cooking venue (complete with charming herb garden) close to sunset. Your guide will show you some local herbs and you’ll get to collect a few to use in this evening’s dishes. Then scrub up and get ready to cook! 

Your Siem Reap cooking experience is very hands-on; your guide will teach you a few tricks and techniques for preparing the ingredients, but everything is done by you. You’ll prepare a starter, a main, and a dessert, as well as a cocktail or herbal tea, depending on your choice. You’ll also learn some simple presentation techniques — perfecting for impressing friends back home with your awesome talents at your next dinner party. 

Before dinner is served, you’ll have time to relax in a peaceful dining pavilion, surrounded by a tropical garden. This might also be a good time to taste-test a cocktail or herbal tea before settling in to enjoy your fresh, tasty Khmer creations. Our professional team will serve your dishes and you can finally savour the flavours of your labour! 

Best of all, if you love what you made, we’ll help you replicate it at home — you’ll get a recipe card to take back with you.
