Cambodia 2019

I’ve decided to volunteer with The Mighty Roar in Cambodia next summer. I love Book Bus – it’s a great charity, brilliant organisation and wonderful people – but I want a change, and to see how another organisation does things. More to follow! 🙂

Books about Cambodia!

Lonely Planet’s rather excellent pocket guide to Siem Reap and Angkor Wat (along with lots more surrounding temples), the ‘on the ground’ information-packed Essential Siem Reap, and a Khmer phrasebook, which might come in useful!

Rocky Road

Recipe: 130g unsalted butter 200g chopped milk chocolate 3 tbsp golden syrup 200g Digestive biscuits 150g Smarties, or similar Method: Put butter, chocolate and golden syrup into a microwaveable bowl, then microwave on full for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Repeat in 10-15 second bursts until you’ve got a smooth mixture. Crush the biscuits and smarties (easiest way to crush the smarties is to to them in a jug, and hit them with the end of a rolling pin) Add the biscuit/smarties mixture to the chocolate and stir until everything’s covered in chocolate, Pour into a 20cm square dish, and flatten Put in fridge for 2 hours, take it out, cut and dust with icing sugar.
