Pay it forward this Valentine’s Day weekend as EGBOK and Spoons—comprising of non-profit Cambodian hospitality school EGBOK (short for Everything’s Gonna Be OK); and Spoons, an EGBOK training facility and café—come together with local boutique florist Beverly Blooms in a heartwarming showcase of Cambodia’s authentic and piquant cuisine that will also allow you to give back in the name of love.
On 14 and 15 February, Spoons chefs Sun Sam Oath and Heng Vicheka will marry the flavours of the Cambodian countryside and traditional street food to present a romantic six-course Valentine’s Day set dinner menu that features some of Spoon’s biggest hits created with the featured Cambodian produce on retail. Think Kor Ko Soup – a traditional Cambodian stirring stew with toasted IBIS rice and Sovannak palm sugar; or Pan Seared Duck Breast glazed in a La Plantation Kampot peppercorn orange sauce. Meanwhile, EGBOK students, alumni and representatives will be working both front of house and in the kitchen to ensure a memorable Valentine’s dinner for all from start to end.
The best part of it all – give that special someone the gift of giving back with 15 per cent of the proceeds from both evenings returning to EGBOK, which in turn affords more underprivileged young adults in Cambodia the opportunity to succeed in the hospitality industry. Local boutique florist Beverly’s Blooms gets in on the spirit of giving by teaming up with SPRMRKT to not only complete each meal with their signature handcrafted boxed bouquets, but also pledge a portion of their proceeds back to EGBOK.
This event is part of SPRMRKT Cambodia, a three-month cultural and culinary “conscious” extravaganza from 7 January to 31 March 2019 that brings the best of Cambodian cuisine, produce and art to our sunny shores.
