Item Description

Cambodian dinner for 8, at your home or the Cambridge home of our CambCamb board member Dr. Lisa Dobberteen, who has studied, cooked, and eaten lots of authentic Cambodian food in the US and in Cambodia. Dietary preferences: vegetarian, gluten free, etc can be accommodated.

Each attendee will receive their own signed copy of the wonderfully authentic Elephant Walk cookbook, written by Longteine de Monteiro, a generous CambCamb supporter and longtime noted chef-owner of Boston's renowned Elephant Walk restaurant. We are grateful to the de Monteiro family for their generous donation of cookbooks to benefit our school. 

The Elephant Walk, which has been praised for its unique cuisine by such publications as Esquire, the New York Times, USA Today, and Travel & Leisure, The Elephant Walk Cookbook is a fascinating introduction to the lively and sophisticated flavors of Cambodia. In addition to showcasing Cambodia's foods, this cookbook tells the inspiring story of Longteine de Monteiro. The wife of a diplomat who was forced into exile after Pol Pot invaded Cambodia, de Monteiro escaped to France, where she established what may have been the first Cambodian restaurant in the Western world. She then moved to the United States and opened The Elephant Walk. Cambodian dishes feature a rich interweaving of cultural influences and fresh, light flavors. Some of the recipes in the book, like Catfish with Coconut Milk and Red Chilies, were created in the kitchens of Cambodian aristocrats, while others, like Stuffed Cabbage with Lemongrass, have simpler origins.

Dinner includes wine and will be arranged for a mutually agreeable date.
