Are you a food lover? If the answer is Yes then the Cambodian authentic food "AMOK" is The Best Ever! Visit me at the countryside, meet with the truly local people and try local dishes with the village chef. You will have the opportunity to visit the local market, we will cook the dishes together and of course we will taste the delicious food as well. The cooking is just a half-day activity and will do two times in a day: - Morning Class: 8.00Am to 12.00Pm - Afternoon Class: 2.00Pm to 6.00Pm The food that we are going to cook are below: - Starter: Fried Spring Roll - Main Course: Fish, Chicken, Pork or Beef Amok - Desert: Pumpkin Custard Countryside Cooking Class is a Unique Day Trip to escape away from the touristy place. Learn more Cambodian Cuisine and Culture, See more Real Cambodian Daily Life. It is more than just experience. This is a GLUTEN FREE CLASSES.

I highly recommend this tour. Ben leads a top notch excursion. The market tour was very interesting and informative. Not only was the food we made very tasty, it was also great to know we were helping to support the local village and orphans.
