A visit to the market before cooking at the countryside. Nice experience and the food was good. Pumpkin custard, amok chicken and spring roll made for scratch.

We got this reco through a friend and had the most amazing time. Ben not only picks you up from wherever your staying, but also takes you on a tour of the village market and is so knowledgeable about everything it has to offer. We made delicious food and everything was perfectly planned out. He keeps the groups small (4... More

I wish I could give Ben and the kind folks at Countryside Cooking Class MORE than 5 stars. It was so authentic and meaningful. If you're looking into a cooking class, or getting a genuine cultural experience while in Cambodia AND care about giving-back to the local community, this is your spot!! Ben is great and is so knowledgeable. He... More

母親と一緒に参加しました。 事前の予約メールや料理の作り方などすべて英語でしたが、簡単でわかり易い英語をキレイな発音で話してくれたのでなんとか大丈夫でした。 私達は、パンプキンカスタード、アモック、スプリングロール(揚げ春巻き)の3点を作りました。 どれもすごーく美味しかったです。 炭火で炊いてるのでアモックに添えられていた白ご飯も美味しい♡ 料理を教えてくれたBenは、とても優しくて面白く 英語が全く話せない私の母親も気遣ってくれ色々フォローしてくれました^ ^ 料理中の写真も撮って頂き、レシピと一緒に後で送ってくれます。 食べきれなかった分は、持ち帰れるようにパッキングしてくれました。 素敵な自然の中で料理体験ができ、 とても素敵な体験になりました。 私の母親もとても喜んでいました。 はじめは、英語に不安があり 他の日本語ガイド付きの料理教室に参加しようと思ってたけれど、ここにして良かったです^ ^♡ 私のように英語に不安がある人も、なんとかなると思うので カンボジア料理に興味ある、遺跡散策とはまた違う体験がしたいなら是非オススメします。 Thank you Ben, I could be wonderful experienced. My mother was glad, too. When there is a chance to go to Cambodia again, We participate again. Megumi

We absolutely loved this cooking class and local market visit. We were picked up timely in a nice, air-conditioned van and dropped with our guide right outside the local market. Unlike many of the other 'local' markets we visited in our SE Asia trip, this one felt truly like we were witnessing the daily lives of the local people. Ben... More

Loved this incredible, delicious and authentic cooking class. Get off the beaten touristy track and take a break from the temples. Ben is a great guide, very informative about local culture and traditions. The local markets are a treat in themselves before you even get to the cooking station, which is set up next to a local home on the... More

This class is one of the most authentic and fun ways to visit Siemp Reap. Ben gives you a tour in the local market outside Siemp Reap and you can see first hand how the locals do their shopping (quite different to the western) Then he takes you to the countryside where you learn from him and one very experience...
