Friends-International’s cookbook "From Spiders to Water Lilies: Creative Cambodian Cooking with Friends" won two awards at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2009, held in Paris. The first award was for ‘Best Asian Cuisine Book’, chosen as the winner out of 22 other countries and a first for a book from Cambodia. It was also in the top 5 of the ‘Fund Raising and Charity Cookbook’ category. From Spiders to Water Lilies features the cuisine of Cambodia, which is not widely known outside the country. Often incorrectly compared to Thai or Vietnamese cuisines, the book shows how different Cambodian food really is. Featuring an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruit, the dishes in this cookbook can be easily adapted to be made in any country – not just Cambodia!
The book has over 40 recipes including Cambodia’s most famous dish – Fish Amok, along with unique dishes like Banana Flower Salad with Grilled Cambodian Bacon, Lime and Sweet Chili sauce and delicious desserts like Crispy Rice Dumplings with Banana and Palm Sugar Syrup. It has been complied by students and staff and features recipes from the Friends Cambodian restaurant, Romdeng. Students here are aged between 15 and 20 and are all former street children who have been supported by Friends to move away from life on the streets and to study so that they can find rewarding employment. Many of the students go on to work in popular restaurants in Phnom Penh, once they have completed their studies.
