Steven Halcrow is a chef from Scotland who has spent his time in Cambodia learning about local ingredients and cooking techniques. Before moving to Cambodia he cooked at a Michelin two-star restaurant in his home country and moonlighted in stand-up comedy. When he first arrived in Cambodia, he briefly worked in the kitchen at Cuisine Wat Damnak in Siem Reap where he got a crash course in the finer points of Cambodian cooking and inspired his love of the local cuisine. Now, he spends his time managing the food tours and expanding his Khmer vocabulary.

Lina Goldberg is a food and travel writer from California who has written about Cambodia for CNN, BBC, and VICE. She moved to Cambodia in 2010 and still devotes much of her spare time to exploring all aspects of Cambodian cuisine.
