Get some culinary inspiration from Charles Phan, the James Beard Award-winning chef of The Slanted Door, one of San Francisco’s top dining destinations. Chef Phan shares tips from his cookbook Vietnamese Home Cooking, which introduces traditional Vietnamese fare to home cooks by focusing on fundamental techniques and ingredients. Infused with personal stories from his early days as a refugee to his current culinary success, Phan takes us on a journey of Vietnamese cuisine from pho to banh mi to street food.
"Some say the Slanted Door is the best Vietnamese restaurant in the United States, thanks in no small part to Phan’s understanding of the American palate and his love of the warm and peppery flavors of Southeast Asia."
– Food & Wine Magazine
Chef Phan will share some light hors d'oeuvres from The Slanted Door Restaurant during the reception and book signing following the event.
