    Publication date: 01/05/2019

    The book features thirty recipes from the master chef's kitchen and many stories about the ingredients he uses from Italy, like pasta, pasta fresca, truffle, and burrata, combined with ingredients he takes from Asian traditions such as Japanese red tuna and Hokkaido sea urchins.

    A beautifully illustrated cookbook from Umberto Bombana, the owner of 8½ Otto e Mezzo, the only Italian restaurant outside of Italy to receive three Michelin stars.

    Umberto Bombana is the chef and founder of the famous 8½ restaurants located in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Macao. After a training period at the Rex restaurant in Los Angeles, in 1993 he opened his own restaurant, Toscana, inside the Hotel Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong. In 2006 the Enoteca Regionale di Cavour appointed him world ambassador of the white truffle of Alba.

    About Act for Cambodia:

    Cambodia was a country at war for many years. Genocide claimed millions of live and orphaned and deprived many children. Antipersonnel mines still threaten their safety and yet despite these bleak conditions, Cambodian children still smile. If you visit Cambodia, you'll still find people who know how to open their arms in welcome.

    The French association Act for Cambodia founded and now runs the Sala Bai Cooking School. This association has been helping Cambodians since 1984, when it brought aid to the crowds of refugees crossing The borders of Thailand to flee the cruelty of the Khmer Rouge and all the terrible events that struck their nation at that time.
    Influenced over the years by a wide variety of cooking styles, Cambodian cuisine presents a particularly broad range of flavors to surprise the palate and stimulate the taste buds. Salty and sweet, downright bitter and sour go hand in hand or are blended subtly, sometimes within a single dish, to create a deliciously harmonious and original result. The recipes included feature favorites such as Curry Fish Cakes, Consomme with Caramelized Beef and Star Anise, Stir-fried Chicken with Chilies and Cashews and Banana Sesame Fritters. Also included is an ingredients section that includes the Cambodian names as well as the Vietnamese or Thai names of the ingredients whenever necessary for ease of shopping.
