Cambodian Cookbook Available Now!

A hidden treasure virtually unknown to the outside world, Cambodian cuisine is often described as a mixture of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine – but don’t tell that to a Cambodian! They believe their cuisine is in a class of its own, and they’re right!

Here’s your chance to experience the flavours and wonders of Cambodia in your own home plus be able to give back with proceeds of the cookbook From Spiders to Water Lilies going directly back to worthy Friends-International’s projects.

From Spiders to Water Lilies

As 18 year old student, Noeum Chanreasy puts it....

"When I was younger, I dreamed about eating a hamburger. When I could finally afford to buy one, I realized they do not compare to Cambodian food at all!"

‘From Spiders To Water Lilies’ features over 40 authentic Cambodian dishes taken from original recipes used in the early 1900’s and used today in the renowned Romdeng Restaurant located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. You can now discover traditional mouth-watering Cambodian meals in your own kitchen… and surprisingly, it’s really easy too! Much more than a cookbook, ‘From Spiders To Water Lilies’ is also a journey into traditional Cambodian culture taking you on a journey and giving you an insight into thousands of vulnerable and homeless Cambodian children who have all contributed to this book in some way. Thank you for your contribution… you can help and give back! RRP: AU$45 plus GST.
