Num kom s’det khieu. (Sticky rice cake with mung bean.) The Pyramid shape cakes are a religious symbol representing the Buddhist pagoda towers, where souls emerge from the top on their path to reincarnation. Traditionally, on Memorial day for ancestors ( Pchum ben/Don-ta), Visak( Buddha birthday) and especially Cambodian New Year(Bon chol thnam thmey), Khmer Krom villagers at my village would make or buy *num kom* for food offerings.
Nom Kroch: literary means orange cake or orange ball. Made of sticky rice, mung bean, shredded coconut and sesame. This is my childhood memory. When I was a little girl, my mother and I used to get up every morning at 5am to make it. Around 7am, I brought nom kroch to the market everyday. Cambodian children love nom kroch. It’s quick grab snack.
Take a cooking class with Nguyen Dzoan Cam Van and lear to cook food like this squid salad.
Luxury Resorts. Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia. The resort will have 27 villas with private pools that have been designed using natural materials typical of Cambodian fishing villages: thatched roofs, timbers and driftwood furnishings. A spa and yoga/mediation center and overwater restaurant are planned. And the location is a marine reserve teeming with tropical fish, dugongs and seahorses, which has been compared to Thailand’s Phuket before the tourist boom. http://songsaa.com/
