We’ve got a Fabulous Festival of Flavours for You this Festive Season

“Oh, come all ye hungry, joyful and triumphant” and join us at Topaz or Khéma for a special Christmas celebration that will be a giant bouquet of flavours, family and friends. Our teams have wrapped up some iconic menus for you, but you’ll need to be quick…

If anyone else feels like last Christmas and New Year’s Eve were either last century or last week, you are not alone! Mercifully, our teams have not been forced to ponder what they’re going to prepare for you for the last two decades, but they have taken a little longer than a week or two to compose some stellar menus to elevate your celebrations this year.

And the kitchen team at Topaz under the guidance of Chef Sopheak Pov has really outdone itself this year. We are incredibly proud to present two menus that are the essence of some serious celebratory business. You’ll find plenty of decadently luxurious ingredients with divine flavours and combinations all wrapped up in two eight-course menus.

To give you a brief glimpse of what’s lined up for a beautifully Bright Christmas at Topaz, you’ll be unfolding dishes including Foie Gras Terrine with Black Winter Truffle, magically cut through with a Raspberry Coulis, and later on, Poached Atlantic Lobster with Champagne Sauce. And these are just some of the supporting act before the main event, which will be a magnificent Turkey Ballotine stuffed with Foie Gras and Morel Mushrooms with Chestnut Purée and Black Trumpet Mushrooms. And for a fire-cracker of a New Year, the menu starts off with a Hokkaido Scallop Tartare with Caviar, and just goes up, up and up from there.

Like we said, the team at Topaz have outdone themselves.

But, not to be outdone, the Khéma crew are batting for you with a pair of fantastic five-course menus that are guaranteed to add an extra sparkle to your day. Here, your Christmas celebrations kick off with a very Cambodian twist, and a delicious salad of Mekong Lobster with Foie Gras and Green Beans followed by a Kampot Crab Cannelloni with Wild Mushrooms. For the centre-piece of the meal, you’ll enjoy a beautiful Turkey Ballotine with a Chestnut and Foie Gras Stuffing, accompanied by Root Vegetables and Potato Dauphinoise. And New Year’s Eve will be no less spectacular, for a menu packed with delicious surprises, including a Creamy White Bean and Scallop Soup, a Seafood Gratin, Foie Gras, and crowned by a Pan-seared Duck Breast à l’Orange served with Spring Vegetables.

Get your hands on some traditional French Bugnes, Merveilles and Oreillettes this February 21, and if you’re not sure what those are keep reading, because you’re not going to want to miss this. To mark the beginning of the Christian Lent, a period of abstinence during which adherents traditionally fast for forty days, a practice of clearing out the larder in preparation gave rise to a tradition that holds to this day in all Christian cultures: of eating confections primarily composed of cupboard staples — flour, eggs, milk and sugar — that needed to be eaten up before the fast…

Cambodia Restaurant Association — Amplifying Industry Strength

It’s a basic fact of life that strength comes through numbers. Which is why the Cambodia Restaurant Association (CRA) is so important for advancing the interests of everyone invested in the Kingdom’s relentlessly dynamic hospitality industry, whether they are in it financially, professionally, or both. The CRA was created 12 years ago with the aim of developing Cambodia’s restaurant industry for the benefit of all. That means ensuring that all Association members have the capacity to grow and achieve their full potential because when they do, they raise everyone’s standards, reputations, and appeal to audiences both at home and abroad.…

Primed for Prahok

Spoons Out! It’s Mont d’Or Season…

Mont d’Or is revered in France almost like no other cheese is, and there’s a good reason why that is! While many consider the Christmas Celebration season an excellent reason to be jolly, there’s certainly no need to feel glum now that it’s over for another year. That’s because there’s another season going on which, we think, is guaranteed to have the cheese-lovers of this world singing joyously as they grab their spoons for a scoop of the gloriously luscious cheese, Mont d’Or. What is Mont d’Or? Well, for starters it’s revered in France almost like no other cheese is,…

Onwards and Upwards to the Year Ahead

Developing Asia Economies Set to Grow 5.2% this Year Amid Global Uncertainty The beginning of this year already feels like it happened a decade ago. Cambodia had just reopened its doors to tourism and the world was gradually moving over to a policy of “living with Covid”. No one really knew what the future held, but there was tentative optimism. What choice did we have after all? But Cambodia’s experience over 2022 has at least borne some of that optimism out. And it looks as though we have ground for even further optimism going into 2023. This December, the World…
