A message from Kanika Linden, the author of the Cambodian cookbook

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Hello everyone,

My name is Kanika Linden and I co-wrote with my mother the cookbook "Au pays de la Pomme Cythère".

The book was originally written to keep a trace of my mother's recipes and was not intended to be a commercial venture. Our purpose is really to promote our beautiful Khmer culinary traditions. We have self-published the book, meaning that we have done everything ourselves from the writing to taking the pictures to publishing it.

It has been a long, sometimes challenging process. We have worked tirelessly in our own free time to produce this book. Your comments show that it was worth it! Thanks for your support. The Gourmand Award has taken us by surprise and has definitively placed Cambodia on the map. For 2009, there were 6,000 participants competing in the Gourmand Awards, from 136 countries. The book is currently in FRENCH. I am working on the English version, which should be ready in the first half of 2011. We are planning to go and meet the Cambodian community in the US during the summer 2011.

If you would like to have the book in FRENCH, please contact whitetaraltd@gmail.com. Thank you!
