Cambodian Cuisine Appreciated at International Gastronomy Village in Paris

Five Cambodian dishes being displayed at the International Gastronomy Village 2022 in Paris, France have won praise and support from the visitors.

Ms. Sun Soveasna, Minister Counselor of the Royal Embassy of Cambodia in France in charge of Diplomatic Economy.

“Our five dishes, including Num Banchok (Khmer traditional noodles), Amok (Cambodian national dish usually made with fish steamed in banana leaves), grilled beef, Num Kang (Cambodian donut) and Num Ansam (Cambodian traditional rice cake with pork or banana), are very popular among the visitors, whether Cambodians or French or other nationals,” she said with delight.

Cambodian chefs made a presentation on Amok, whose recipe is excerpted from The Taste of Angkor, awarded with Gourmand World Cookbook Awards for two consecutive years (2021 and 2022).

In addition to the five dishes, milled rice, Kampong Speu palm sugar, and Kampot pepper are also exhibited so that foreigners know more about Cambodian products.

The International Gastronomy Village 2022 is taking place at the Jardins du Trocadéro (Gardens of the Trocadero) from Sept. 1 to 4, 2022, from 10 am to 10 pm (Paris time), with a total of 75 booths by 46 participating countries.

For the Cambodian booth, there are cooking demonstrations, peacock and flower dance performances for visitors in the evenings.
