Description: Elephant Walk cookbook from the Cambodian restaurants in Massachucetts (Boston, Cambridge and Waltham) brings you dishes from Cambodia. The cuisine of Cambodia is as varied as its geography. From the people of India, Cambodian cooks adapted the art of blending spice pastes. From the Chinese, they borrowed soy sauce and noodles; from the French, techniques for baking good bread; and from the Portuguese and Spanish colonialists, chili peppers, beans, tomatoes and corn. The result is a rich interweaving of influences in dishes that feature the nation's abundant fruits, vegetables, seafood and fresh herbs and spices.
Here for the first time, in the Elephant Walk cookbook, the traditional cooking of Cambodia is presented for the American table, from the sophisticated dishes of the highest levels of society to the simple food of marketplaces, rural villages and seaside towns. Each of the 150 recipes -- from Pork Brochettes with Shredded Coconut to Stir-Fried Beef with Chinese Celery to Grilled Chicken with Lemongrass -- is entirely accessible to home cooks.
Replete with photographs from the authors' collections and with a fully illustrated glossary of ingredients, this cookbook is a fascinating introduction to the little-known culinary traditions of a complex country.
