    We started the tour at the local market, where we could try some local food and our guide told us about markets in Cambodia. We saw many specialities that were completely new to us. Our guide explained how they make palm sugar, how to know which one is the best, we learnt a lot about the different kinds of fish and their preparation as well. It was a great way to start the tour as the market in Siem Reap is very crowded and in this local market we had time to look around and it felt much more authentic. We continued our way to the place of the cooking class. It is next to a huge field, we could see the sunset and the area is very beautiful. We prepared a salad, a main dish and dessert, all of them were very delicious. Our guide explained each step and gave each of us something to do. We learnt how to make banana leaf bowls and the food was cooked in them. Everything was very well planned, we had enough time to prepare each dish and then to enjoy the meal. We liked this tour a lot and would definitely recommend it.
