Be among the first to see the cookbook that Phan followers and food lovers everywhere have been waiting for. San Francisco is internationally renowned for its culinary excellence, and the city’s Vietnamese food is certainly no exception. In his first cookbook, Phan, the city’s most prominent Vietnamese chef and restaurateur, focuses on the fundamental techniques and ingredients involved in the preparation of his native land’s cuisine to enable one to enjoy the flavors at home.

Moderator Thuy Vu is an Emmy Award-winning Bay Area television reporter and anchor who was born in Vietnam and, after the fall of Saigon, found her way to California and graduated from UC Berkeley.
