In March 2012, we flew across the world with hopes of writing a cookbook to benefit at-risk young women in Cambodia. After months of recipe testing, writing, editing, photographing, graphic designing, organizing, asking questions, and looking at the same words and photographs until our eyes crossed — it’s in print!
We are so pleased to share it with you — and even more so that all proceeds go to fund Center for Global Impact’s programs for at-risk young women in Cambodia.
What It Is
-A cookbook to benefit the Green Mango Cafe & Bakery restaurant and culinary training program in Battambang, Cambodia, started by Center for Global Impact (CGI – a faith-based non-profit based in Greenwood, Indiana).
-A collection of 40+ recipes based on the menu of the restaurant, ranging in a variety of cuisines from Cambodian to Mexican, Italian, French, and American (see the preview below).
-Extras include explanations of Cambodian-ingredients, how-to’s, information about Cambodia and the cooking school / restaurant, and photographs from our time in country.
-All proceeds go to CGI’s programs in Cambodia.
-What it’s not? An anthology of traditional Cambodian recipes, or a collection of A Couple Cooks-style recipes (though we did adapt all of them based on notes from the restaurant!).
