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 Center. This 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.
