Cambodian chefs win gold in Best Asian Gourmet Challenge

Led by a police car and a chai yam band playing traditional music, 27 chefs made up part of a long procession of vehicles driving through Siem Reap town, with national flags waving and participants proudly showing off their medals as they made a triumphant return home.

They were Cambodia’s participants at the Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge 2019 – last year known as the Mekong Food Challenge – held from May 28 to June 1 in Bangkok.

The chefs returned home with three gold medals in the Best Asian Gourmet Challenge category, along with a further six silver medals and 17 bronze in different categories.
