Wine Dinner: Domaines Barons de [email protected] Restaurant Phnom Penh

Malis, in partnership with IDD, hosted a celebration on September 28 of Cambodian cuisine paired with wines from the vineyards of the Rothschild Barons, one of the greatest names in winemaking in the world. An “aristocratic” evening of fine food and a chance to learn more about these noble wines from special guest Chris Thompson, a representative for Domaines Barons de Rothschild wines in the region. This was also the first time that Malis presented the rich, succulent flavours of Kulen Black Pig, delicious, organic, sustainably produced pork that supports vulnerable families living amid the Kulen Mountain Range. For the starter, Mekong river lobster salad with turmeric dressing was served, paired with Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc, Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild, 2015. The second course featured slow-cooked green papaya soup with shrimp paired with Rimapere, Sauvignon Blanc, Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild, 2015. Following the soup, was Khmer crab meat samlor with a mild coconut milk curry paired with Los Vascos, Chardonnay, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), 2015. The main course consisted of Malis’s signature roasted Kulen Pig with fried rice served with a special Chilean wine Le Dix de Los Vascos Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), 2012. For dessert, num ko pandan with coconut ice cream was served. Photos supplied
