Cambodia's signature dish: steamed Fish Amok

About our cooking courses

The Cambodia Cooking Class offers you a choice of 2 different courses, plus the possibility to choose a combination. Each course has been designed as a one day course so that you will learn the main techniques for cooking Cambodian food whichever course you attend.

Both courses can be adjusted for vegetarians. E.g. for the vegetarian version of the signature dish Fish Amok we replace fish with tofu and mushrooms.

Cooking Course Set-up

The teacher will demonstrate how to cook the dish first and give you lots of extra tips about alternative cooking methods and substitutes for each dish.

Then it will be your turn. Each student will have their own specifically designed cooking station so that they do not have to share.

While you are cooking the teacher will be guiding you through the recipes step-by-step so that you are guaranteed to enjoy eating all the food that you have cooked for lunch and dinner.

See our typical timetable for a course.

Cooking Class: Clean, Quality, Fun

The cooking areas are kept clean and all the cooking utensils are of the highest quality. Only the freshest ingredients are used.

The courses are designed to be not only educative but fun and entertaining as well.

We aim to make our courses a memorable experience for you in pleasant surroundings (see pictures).

The main emphasis of our courses is on quality.
