Cambodian Cooking: A Humanitarian Project in Collaboration with ACT for Cambodia
Prepare all your favorite Cambodian foods with this easy-to-follow and informative Cambodian cookbook. New cookbooks on Asian cuisines are much easier to find now than in years past. However, it’s still very difficult to find a useful cookbook that focuses on the foods of Cambodia. Now, for the first time Cambodian Cooking brings a previously untapped culinary tradition to the table for everyone to enjoy.
The recipes included feature favorites such as Curry Fish Cakes, Consomme with Caramelized Beef and Star Anise, Stir-fried Chicken with Chilies and Cashews and Banana Sesame Fritters.
