Every week, the Kitchen Story Facebook page posts a single instructional food video. A pair of hands and a calm voice speaking Khmer guide you through the ingredients needed for the recipe and steps to make it.
This week, viewers were guided through the brining of a whole chicken, then slathering it in herbed butter and roasting it with crispy potatoes. English subtitles and rudimentary graphics make the experience enjoyable for viewers unable to speak Khmer.
But, that is all viewers get, a voice and two hands. The owner of Kitchen Story’s popular Facebook and YouTube pages, Duong Thida, told VOA Khmer that she intentionally keeps her identity secret so that her audience can focus on the videos and the food she cooks.
