Naysim has a silkworm farm just outside of Phnom Penh and also produces silk products. You will first learn how to spin Cambodian silk, see the caterpillars and try your hand at the loom. Then it goes into the open kitchen, where you learn how to cook the famous Beef Lok Lak in the cooking class in Phnom Penh. There is also a soup called Khlor Samlor Machu, which also contains the well-known Kreug paste.


Phanny and her husband live in the north of Phnom Penh with their daughter. They have retired but are happy to tell you about Cambodian culture and traditions. They have an interesting collection of old household items, some of which are 100 years old and handmade. The menu includes a soup that is cooked according to a very old recipe and is called grouse soup.

Cooking classes are not boring lessons

Our cooking classes in Phnom Penh are not lessons as you know them from school. Instead of a teacher, you cook with the host families and learn automatically how the dishes are prepared. It’s like inviting friends to your home. In addition, the cooking classes in Phnom Penh are exclusive, if you book them, only you and your fellow travelers will take part.

  • What you get:
    Cooking three different dishes (depending on the host)

    New friends
    Depending on the host, you can also buy souvenirs or make small gifts yourself
    Unforgettable moments and memories
    It feels good to help a Cambodian family earn extra income.
