The Sugar Palm

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Following the horrific events of the 1970s, the indigenous Cambodian Khmer style of cooking began to die out, a fact which inspired The Sugar Palm's founder Kethana Dunnet to immortalise the dishes prepared by her mother and grandmother. She's succeeded in doing so and has subsequently become a global authority on Cambodian cuisine, even acting as TV chef Gordon Ramsay's teacher when he was exploring the nation's culinary heritage. She now owns and operates restaurants in Siem Reap and in Phnom Penh, where guests can relax in traditional Cambodian stripped back but stylish surroundings and feast on an array of dishes including crispy appetisers, vibrant salads, aromatic soups, grills and traditional Khmer curries made with coconut cream, potatoes, beans, aubergine and onion.
