FARM-TO-TABLE: PARK HYATT SIEM REAP EMBARK ON ORGANIC KHMER CULINARY JOURNEY

SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA, August 11, 2020 — The first seeds have been planted at Theam’s Organic Farm at Park Hyatt Siem Reap, a luxury hotel in Siem Reap. The farm-to-table project ushers in a unique dining experience for culinary travelers and food enthusiasts. Executive Chef Pisith Theam will design a tailor-made menu right at the guest’s table, based around their choice of organic ingredients.

A labour of love started by Chef Pisith, Theam’s Organic Farm evolved out of a desire for healthier ingredients and a safer, more sustainable approach to food.

The organic farm is slated to yield tropical fruit, colorful vegetables, edible flowers and fragrant herbs. The main staples of freshly grown Lemongrass, Kaffir lime leaf, garlic and galangal will be used in preparing authentic Khmer dishes at the best restaurants in Siem Reap.

“Since I was young, I’ve always used the best quality ingredients,” said Chef Pisith. “Organic food wasn’t available in Cambodia after the war, but we still used fresh natural ingredients and spices for cooking Khmer cuisine.”

Chef Pisith’s love for fresh ingredients was instilled in him by both his grandmother and his father. He is a third generation chef in Siem Reap. His grandmother was renowned for her cooking skills and was the head chef for local village weddings and ceremonies. Chef Pisith’s father, Theam Saveth, is the former Executive Chef of Hotel de La Paix, now reborn as the luxurious Park Hyatt Siem Reap where Chef Theam has taken the helm.

Guests of Park Hyatt Siem Reap have the opportunity to indulge in exquisite culinary journeys incorporating these fresh organic ingredients. Famous for its Khmer food, The Dining Room offers a stimulating dining experience against the backdrop of refined decor peppered with local flair. Chic and cozy, The Living Room features one of the finest high teas in Siem Reap inspired by Khmer traditions and royal selections. The French-inspired café, The Glasshouse Deli. Patisserie, serves up delectable light fare, fresh pastries and the most decadent homemade cakes in Siem Reap.
