US Food Week Comes to Cambodia

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

And it's not only hamburgers on the menu...

U.S. Foods Week opens in Phnom Penh
December 3, 2018
It is again the time of the year for Cambodia foodies to whet their appetites for American food, because the U.S. Food Week commenced at the Academy of Culinary Arts Cambodia (ACAC) in Phnom Penh, on December 1.

The U.S. began promotional activities for U.S. food products in Cambodia in 2013. Coined the U.S. Foods Week, the work in 2018 will have leading restaurants and import partners participating, and they will promote U.S.-grown ingredients and products such as lentils, dried beans, beef, potatoes, and California raisins and wines.

At the opening ceremony, guests were treated to various food samples. All were prepared using U.S.-grown ingredients by the cooks at the ACAC. Offered were hummus moU.S.se with sea bream carpaccio and coriander oil, popcorn doughnuts, and beef with coffee rub and creamed cabbage, among others.

Speaking on Friday, November 30, at event’s opening, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Senior Attaché for Agricultural Affairs Gerald Smith said that Cambodia’s U.S. food imports have almost doubled since 2013 – from $10.3 million to $19.6 million in 2017.

This, he said, was mainly due to the increase in qualified chefs who have acquired the skills needed to cater to Cambodian consumers’ diverse demands.

Probably the only thing I am ashamed to be an American over......food.

Without doubt and beyond any argument, American food ( I cannot call it cuisine) is the worst in the world. KFC, Big Macs, Dunkins, Corn Dogs, Wieners, the list goes on for miles. Junk, junk, junk food. It's little wonder that we are one of the most unhealthy nations in the world and now we are exporting our trash to Asia. (hangs head in shame).

That's not a Khmer, that's June from our local Burger King in Herndon. She seems to have lost weight.

What the actual fuck? If you choose to consume that shit instead of the vast array of food styles that make up actual American cuisine, that's on you, sunshine. You're actually Australian or something, right?

In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Yep, It all started when they claimed Joh Bjeike-Peterson was Australian.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
