Images of Cambodia: The Chef

Meet the Chef:

She makes lunch every day for 40 workers at a silk-weaving social enterprise in rural northeastern Cambodia. More to come on the Stung Treng Women’s Development CenterThis day, she’s chopping root vegetables for a chicken soup so delicious that I had to eat a second lunch. All in an al fresco kitchen with the most basic possible amenities.

Mourning Norodom Sihanouk — Thousands of mourners gather to remember former king Norodom Sihanouk by the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh. Monks pray, students offer lotus blossoms and incense, and a Buddhist nun bestows blessings upon a small boy.

The Noodle Maker  — He wears a sarong, runs a simple guesthouse in a tiny Cambodian village, grows rice, and wakes at 3am every day to make rice noodles to sell in the village market. He sends his daughter to school. And he smiles a lot.
