Living in Asia with limited access to Western ingredients leads to daily kitchen improv!
My favorite things to cook
baking, traditional Khmer dishes, anything with cheese and/or sour cream
My favorite family cooking traditions
pierogies, cheddar chowder, colcannon, irish soda bread
My cooking triumphs
using mainly fresh/unprocessed ingredients as a way of life, mastering the art of Khmer "kroueng" (curry-like dishes involving hand-pounded spices, hand-squeezed coconut milk, and fermented fish paste!)
