LUCKY SHOW

The Ministry of Commerce has organised the Cambodia Food and Beverage Show that’s running at Lucky Mall from today, March 26, until Sunday March 28, with the goal of promoting Cambodian food products to local and international markets.

Lucky Mall, Siem Reap’s largest shopping centre, has certainly been a hive of activity of late.

Last weekend the mall hosted the Nokia Hip-Hop Championships for 2010. This drew huge crowds, resulting in evening traffic jams along Sivutha Boulevard, and coincided with the opening of the Hip-Hop Club near Sok San Palace nightclub.

The Hip-Hop Club is a new venture by the Lee brothers of Temple Bar fame. The club is like a traditional Khmer beer garden, but trendified with stylish décor and a bunch of cool palm trees in front. The food and beer are cheap and the clientele mostly Khmer.

CULINARY OLYMPICS
The team representing Siem Reap’s Paul Dubrule tourism and hospitality school that competed at the Bocuse d’Or Asian culinary competition held on March 17-18 has returned home without a trophy in the suitcase.

But no matter, said the school’s director Gerald Hougardy, adding that team members had “pride in their hearts for having represented Cambodia at these Olympic Games of the Culinary Arts”.

Hougardy told 7Days, “The team performed well but the level was very high. Some countries had been preparing for more than a year, and we also lost points for being behind schedule.”

The four winning teams included overall winners Malaysia, plus China, Japan and Indonesia.
