Photographer's Note

In the past insect dishes were foods for the poor, those who are not lucky enough to eat meat, so they look for edible insects to fill their stomachs. Later, this dish is more and more popular and became the favorite dish of the inhabitants. That’s why the insect market was created. Indeed, Cambodians favorite insects are cricket, grasshopper, spider, cockroach … After washing well, they are all dipped in flour to tempura and grilled. This dish exists not only in street corners, along the sidewalk but also in luxury restaurants. Edible insects contain high quality protein, vitamins and amino acids for humans. According to a report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), they are the main future for world food security. A picture taken at Battambang central market.
