Cambodian Sugar Palm Journey

An experience unique to this part of the world, uncover the way of life for generations of the Khmer people from the sugar palm tree Borassus flabellifer indigenous to Cambodia. More than just a source of food product, the Khmer people depend on the sugar palm tree for fuel, animal feed, and which was also used as paper for Khmer manuscripts in the 12th century.

Join Chef Theam on a visit through the busy morning market, sampling through exotic foods, tropical fruits, fresh herbs and dried spices. Receive a warm welcome at an inviting multi-generational homestead set in a rustic Cambodian rice field, who continue to harvest and produce sugar palm with primitive and natural techniques. Delight in the sugary and woody aromas of fresh sugar palm juice steadily stirred and carefully caramelized over an open log fire.

Wrap up your experience on a sweet note with palm leaf-wrapped sugar palm souvenirs and a delicate four-course meal carefully created to accentuate the pure, silky sweetness of the Khmer sugar palm back at The Dining Room.
