    Delicious and fun!
    It was an amazing way to end our stay in Siem Reap. At the last minute with some doubts I added my teenage son to have the lesson with me and we both loved it! The chef Sopheap taught with a light touch and good humour. And we had a delicious meal at the end. No matter what your kitchen proficiency is, you will take something out of this class. Thank you Sopheap for making it so memorable for us!

    Most excellent cooking class
    Paper Tiger cooking class review My husband and I had a wonderful experience at our cooking class with chef Sinoun at Paper Tiger restaurant on Pub Street, Siem Reap. We arrived mid morning to ask about booking a class and were invited to take a class right away! We had to wait a few minutes for Sinoun to get ingredients set up, but we were thrilled she was able to accommodate us at short notice. We were given a few dishes to choose from to cook for our class. We chose the green mango salad and fish amok, along with bananas with passion fruit sauce for dessert. First off, we walked around the market nearby where Sinoun showed us many unusual ingredients. When we returned, we donned aprons and chef hats, and washed our hands in water with limes. Then we sat down and started chopping and grating ingredients. Sinoun showed us how to use the grating tool to make basket-weave slices of green mango and carrots. We prepped all the ingredients for the three dishes before we started any cooking. Sinoun also taught us how to fold and cut banana leaves to make plate decorations and cups to serve the amok! Then she turned on the stoves and we started cooking. When all was prepared, we enjoyed a delicious lunch. Sinoun was a delightful teacher. We had a wonderful time cooking with her.

    Absolute highlight!
    Our family of 5 loved this private class from start to finish - going to the market, chopping, preparing, cooking, decorating and eating! Dinner was delicious, Paper Tiger is a nice place to sit and so easy to get to on Pub Street. Sinuon was an engaging and passionate teacher. She helped us every step along the way and was great with the kids! Thank you Sinuon and Paper Tiger!

    Sopheap is the best!
    We had a wonderful class with Sopheap! She was knowledgeable, fun, and instructive. We made 5 different dishes and each was outstanding. The quality of the food was some of the best we’ve had in Cambodia. Her classroom is clean and private. We would highly recommend Sopheap for cooking class!!

Channy was a great teacher with clear English skills and a fun personality, the food we made tasted great and I love that you are emailed the recipes afterwards to recreate at home unlike other classes I’ve done.

Channy was an amazing chef, showing us around the markets and teaching us all the culinary techniques and tricks. Highly recommend spending the time learning about how to cook. Eating the three courses was the best food of our trip to Cambodia. Thanks Channy!

We attended this cooking class conducted in an actual restaurant near Pub Street.
The chef instructor was Sinuon. She was a wonderful lady; patient and helpful.
We had an enjoyable afternoon learning how to prepare and cook the Cambodian classics: Fish Amok and Beef Loc Lac; and also rice paper rolls, green mango salad and a banana dessert with passion fruit.
Best of all we got to sit down and savour our Cambodian creations!
It was a memorable and meaningful introduction to Cambodian food culture.
Totally worth it!

The most wonderful experience cooking with the delightful, happy teacher Channy. Her teaching skills👍. She made the class so much fun. Her beautiful smile lights up the room and her laughter is infectious. One of the highlights of our trip. Wish I could rate this higher because I would. 100 out of 100.

Amazing cooking class ! We made Cambodian specialties (starter, main, dessert), it took us about 2 hours, and then we enjoyed our food in the restaurant downstairs. Sopheap is a great teacher and is very friendly.
100% recommend !!!
