We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the village to pick up 3 more people. They had done research and brought school supplies and clothing for the kiddos in the nearby orphanage! We got to interact with them and they were all so sweet and thankful! We went to the local market and learned about local foods. We all even tried bugs! They weren’t that bad. We went back to the village and made food over fire. It was so much fun!

Good people, good food, great stories! Worth every penny! You get the taste of real cambodia in the market and at the farm house and it’s was not like tourist trap or really set tour but they took time to talk and chat :) we stayed there much longer for example! I recommend it to everyone.
Really enjoyed the morning with Ben and the rest of the crew. Started the morning with an interesting visit to Ben's local market, got a tour around and learned interesting facts e.g. about how different plants are used for medicinal purposes. Also got to taste lovely crunchy crickets and beetles. Would definitely recommend giving it a go! Got to cook really tasty spring rolls from scratch, beautiful amok as well as gorgeous pumpkin custard desert. Last but not least got to eat it too. Just lovely. Would definitely recommend the class!
Well organised, good fun and we learned something. Very pleased to see that the organisers are using our revenue to help an orphanage. Would recommend
The day was very enjoyable and Ben puts his heart and soul into it. The food was delicous and I cant wait to try and recreate it at home.
I would highly recommend the course to anyone who travels to Cambodia. Not only do you get a full cooking lesson but also a tour of a market as well. Ben is an amazing person and loves to share his experiences and knowledge with you. 10/10
