Although there are many recipes in Cambodia with epically long ingredient lists, I chose a collection of unusual dishes with refreshingly short ingredient lists. Did I mention I have a 13-month old?
This Global Table Adventure, I’m most looking forward to trying the Cambodian Grilled Eggs – mostly because I am tickled by the idea of grilling a whole (yet seasoned) egg! Confused? Don’t worry. It will all be clear come Monday, when I post photos, recipes, and Ava’s video review. Special thanks to Karen Coates – accomplished journalist, traveler, and one of my favorite bloggers – who was kind enough to hunt down a Khmer friend for an authentic recipe for me to adapt. It’s going to be mmm, mmm, good!
