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 pursued his hobby of stand-up comedy. When he first arrived in Cambodia, he briefly worked in the kitchen at Cuisine Wat Damnak in Siem Reap, which also happens to be Lina's favorite restaurant in Cambodia. There 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 running all of the food tours and and expanding his Khmer vocabulary.
