About the Author: After the Khmer Rouge War in 1979, Chansophy Anhaouy and her family went back to Phnom Penh and settled in Orusey Sangkat. Like many Cambodian families who survived the war, Anhaouy's family worked hard to make ends meet. Anhaouy was a young teenager then, going to school at night and running a small local restaurant during the day. She loved cooking and at a very young age already knew how to create her own recipes using her exposure to Vietnamese, Laos, Chinese, and Cambodian food and cultures. Her dream was to become an accomplished chef and publish her recipes. Almost thirty years later, living in Everett, Washington, Anhaouy has transformed her dream into reality by sharing her intimate collection of recipes, From My Kitchen to Yours.
