I think it was @Chowseeker1999 who wished he grew up eating food from an Asian grandmother on another thread, and well, I’m here to announce that your wish can come true!
The power of food bringing people together is so important to me, I convinced my mom and grandma to my daughters to help me throw a @thelakitchen #sharedplatesLA luncheon. Grandma Ly is the eldest of 9 siblings, who learned to cook at a very young age and worked as a butcher in the wet markets of Saigon and then, here in America, as a butcher in a Kosher deli. She’s overseen her local Vietnamese Amercian Catholic church kitchen in Michigan for over 30 years, cooking fundraising dinners almost on weekly basis and of course didn’t even break a sweat when I told her what her role would be.
So on Oct 14, 12-3 pm we’re opening our home to food lovers with 100% proceeds going to @thelakitchen. tickets are via eventbrite and tenative menu below. Would love to have a FTC meet up there and yes, kid friendly.
Eventbrite link here: sold out!

MODS: I’ve seen hop woo post adverts for their szechuan food fest so I figured this would be ok.
