Miso Chicken Wingettes

Miso glazed chicken wingettes are seasoned with a sweet Japanese miso (fermented soy bean paste) and baked in the oven until juicy and delicious. Chicken wings are a popular dish in Japanese cuisine, known as "tebasaki", but they are often served whole, and not cut up into smaller wingettes as they are in this recipe.
This recipe is fairly quick and easy as the ingredients for the sauce are simply mixed and then tossed with the wingettes. There are several options below to help tailor the recipe to perfectly suit your tastes. Enjoy!
​ Recipe Tips
  1. Any type of miso may be used: red, white, awase (mix of red and white miso).
  2. Make it spicy by adding Japanese 7 spice chili flakes (shichimi togarashi), Ra-yu spicy Japanese chili oil, or dried chili peppers slices or flakes.
  3. As with any recipe, make it to suit your own taste by adjusting the amount of sugar.
  4. If you're a garlic lover, try adding about a 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic to the miso marinade in the recipe below to add a bit of boldness to the dish.

Asparagus With Aioli

Aioli—a French garlic-laden mayonnaise—is delicious on chilled asparagus. Delicious. Like a cold version of how delicious freshly steamed asparagus is when napped with hollandaise sauce. It's a similarly rich egg-y, lemon-y sauce that highlights the grassy flavor at the heart of asparagus spears.
Note that aioli contains raw egg. Many people will choose to use pasteurized eggs in this instance, and anyone with a compromised immune system should avoid uncooked eggs. If you keep your own chickens or get pastured eggs from a source you trust, raw eggs are more of an option.

Cambodian Cuisine: A Fusion of Ethnicity, Trade, Wars and Colonization

First of all, let's clarify two terms what often cause confusion. Why do some people say "Cambodian cuisine" while others say "Khmer cuisine"? Are they different?
No, "Cambodian cuisine" and "Khmer cuisine" are the same thing. Before Cambodia became the Kingdom of Kampuchea (the official name in English is Kingdom of Cambodia), it was preceded by the mighty Khmer Empire which gave the country and the world Angkor Wat.
While English speakers call the nation Cambodia, the locals refer to it as Kampuchea. The word "Khmer" refers to the ethnic people and culture. In modern usage, however, Khmer is often used to describe in general the people, their native language, culture and cuisine.
For the sake of convenience and uniformity, let's stick with the terms "Cambodian cuisine", "Cambodian food" and "Cambodian cooking".

Khmer Food

Although Cambodia is still crawling through a recovery due to its brutal past, millions of tourists flock to Siem Reap annually to explore the temples of Angkor Wat. A majority of those tourists come from neighboring Thailand, Laos, or Vietnam without knowing what to expect from Khmer food.
Cambodian cuisine may borrow from many other dishes found in Southeast Asia, however the resourceful people have found their own ways to add a tasty, unique twist to otherwise familiar dishes.
Curries are a common staple of Khmer food, although they are typically less spicy than those found in Thailand. Khmer food tends to contain a larger variety of stir-fried vegetables and more garlic than found in Thai food.
The large volume of freshwater rivers and streams flowing through Cambodia make fish the most important protein in Khmer food.

The Secret Ingredients of Khmer Food

Adventurous eaters know that traditional Khmer food shares a common, unfamiliar flavor across many dishes.

All about Cambodian food

A typical Cambodian breakfast is rice porridge, called bobor, that’s similar to Chinese congee. Rice and rice noodles figure heavily at the Cambodian breakfast table. A favorite way to start the day is nom banh chok, sometimes called the Cambodian national dish: rice noodles topped with a fish-based green curry gravy made with lemongrass, turmeric root, and kaffir lime. Another popular breakfast noodle preparation is kuy teav, a soup made from pork or beef bones and rice vermicelli and topped with fried shallots, green onions, and bean sprouts. Bai sach chrouk, or pork and rice, is one of Cambodia’s simplest and most delicious breakfast options.
Snacking is a popular Cambodian pastime, particularly snacking on street food. If you’re worried about getting sick, the safest street foods are those that are cooked in front of you and served hot, which kills off bacteria. Ice in Cambodia is also usually fine; it’s specially made in ice factories.
You’ll find different snacks available on Cambodia’s streets at different times of the day. Early in the morning vendors offer breakfast dishes such as kuy teav and bai sach chrouk at small roadside stalls. In late morning through afternoon, roving vendors sell fresh cut-up fruit. Students crowd the streets late in the afternoon to enjoy such restoratives as spring rolls and barbecued beef skewers tucked into baguettes and topped with a green mango slaw.
Cambodian food snacks
Cambodian are consummate snackers, and a mid-afternoon bowl of noodles is the perfect pick-me-up.
Other street food favorites include iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk (kar-fe toek doh koh toek gok), fried noodles (mi char), chive cakes (num kachay), and paté sandwiches (num pang pâté). You’ll find these dishes sold by roving vendors pushing carts around town and at small restaurants that set up shop on the sidewalk. For adventurous eaters, street food is a great way to learn about local fare while on a budget. On the street many delightful dishes usually cost no more than $1, far less than at Cambodia’s Western restaurants.
For those who aren’t convinced that they will like Cambodian food, there are hundreds of restaurants serving all types of international food in Cambodia. American, British, French, Italian, Korean and Japanese expats have all set up restaurants serving their country’s specialties, and that’s not all. Those who are looking to follow a vegetarian, vegan, or halal diet will find many options. While local cuisine may be the least expensive choice, your favorite foreign comfort food won’t be hard time come by, both in restaurants and supermarkets.

Twentieth Century Fox’s Paul Hanneman will once again serve as chairman of the event.
“CineEurope and our partners at the International Union of Cinemas [UNIC] are absolutely enthused that Variety is presenting this award to Scott,” said CineEurope co-managing director Andrew Sunshine. “His work and dedication to children is second to none. Scott was a senior executive with Fox and gave up a prestigious career to devote his life to helping others.”

We are honored that he has agreed to accept the Variety International Children’s Fund Humanitarian Award.” said Phil Clapp, president of UNIC.
“Just as Variety–The Children’s Charity identifies gaps in services to children and fills them, Scott founded the Cambodian Children’s Fund when he saw a vast gap for Cambodian children living in poverty with little opportunity to break the cycle,” noted Barbara Hislop, president of Variety–The Children’s Charity International. “Since 2003, Scott has sought to remedy that gap and made an immense difference to countless children’s lives. In 2004, Scott quit his job and moved to Cambodia to commit full-time to the project. Variety–The Children’s Charity is proud to honor Scott Neeson with the 2016 Variety International Children’s Fund Humanitarian Award during CineEurope.”

He moved to Phnom Penh and founded Cambodian Children’s Fund. Cambodian Children’s Fund was initially developed to provide a safe haven for 45 children in critical need. CCF now provides award-winning education to more than 2,300 children, as well as supporting thousands of families through a holistic, integrated approach to community development. 2013 saw the launch of the Child Protection Unit (CPU), the latest addition to CCF.

In 2007, he was awarded the inaugural Harvard School of Public Health “Q Prize,” in recognition of his leadership in advocacy for children. CCF’s education program received a 2012 WISE Award in recognition of its transformative impact on education and society.
