Here are just a few
"Compliments to the Chef"
from Ms. Baker's students!

" Thanks so much for teaching me how to
prepare Amok (fish marinated with curry sauce),
right down to where to buy the ingredients and
how to fold the banana leaves. I have already delighted many
friends with this Cambodian dish, which is amazingly easy to
prepare based on your instruction. "

  - - Scott Binde

" I will be forever grateful to Om Demaz for sharing
her culinary expertise with us!
We made the most incredible-tasting and authentic Cambodian dishes,
with recipes that are easy-to-follow and fast . . .
I took this class with my mother. Both of us are Cambodian
and we can attest to the fact that the food is deeelicious
and authentic! I highly recommend taking Om Demaz' class
with someone you know -- it makes it even more fun and gratifying! "

  - - Variny Yim Paladino

" The course was fantastic! Demaz taught the class
by having us prepare a wide variety of dishes and menus.
The focus on food preparation and the different spices
was especially helpful.
This is a five star course and instructor! *****  "

  - - Dave Martin

" This class was one of the most enjoyable classes
that I have taken through Arlington County Adult Education . . .
The class also contained great information on Cambodian culture
and customs. We learned the importance of presentation
when serving a dish, and hints for finishing touches
that make the food appealing to the eye as well as to the nose and mouth!
Demaz Baker leads a fun-filled adventure in the world
of Cambodian cuisine, and I would highly recommend the class
to anyone who enjoys great food and great company. "
