On the north side of the Old Market is the food section. This is where Cambodians buy their fresh fruit and vegetables. We got the tour of this crowded, cramped and very hot market by our hotel chef. He lingered over this display of mixed vegetables for our cooking class. He expertly selected the finest cucumbers, squash, carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, ginger and pomelos. Then he showed us how to prepare a spectacular, five-course Cambodian meal. Similar culinary experiences are offered throughout the city.
