Sorya is extremely passionate about cooking and sharing her impressive knowledge with you. She has very good English so it was easy to follow her directions. The food we made with her expert guidance was delicious! She sent us a recipe book via WhatsApp at the end of the session which was much appreciated. Tuk tuk pick-up was punctual. Please note: If you are vegetarian there are no meat alternatives (e.g. tofu or jackfruit) available, but you can still make the dishes without meat (e.g. vegetables and rice). That is my only suggestion tor improvement - otherwise an extremely enjoyable afternoon which I highly recommend :)

I signed up for a small group class and I got a private class as I went in the middle of the week. They were punctual and pick it me up as indicated in booking. Sorya took me over and showed me the local market and together tasted some local products and I have noticed how coconut milk is prepared. Afterwards we took few ingredients from the garden and started the cooking. Sorya was nice, patient and aknowledgeble. She showed me how to prepare my favorite Cambodian amok with fish dish. She has a great english. The location was clean and nice. It was a pleasure to spend few hours in their company learning how to prepare some delicious dishes. I totally recommend the class.

This was one of my favourite experiences in Siem Reap. Sorya and her team are so welcoming. The class was incredibly authentic, with a visit to the local market and a walk through the home herb garden. There are a number of dishes to choose from, all very delicious and Sorya takes into account all dietary requirements. The knowledge, care and attention was faultless and it is clear to see the impact this work has on the whole community. Such a brilliant class!
