June 6 | 12:30 - 2 p.m. | Room P2-18
Seri Chao is a home chef who started his culinary journey with Khmer cuisine after his mom made plans to move back to Cambodia. Teaching him the original recipes her mother taught her instilled a sense of yearning to cook even more. In this free cooking demonstration, Seri will be making a noodle salad bowl with marinated beef and will have samples for the audience. Check out his YouTube channel “Seri Cooks” to see other recipes that he has shared.
Asia and Pacific Islands around Philly
Through food, music, film, and performance, the series will educate participants about the diversity of AAPI identities and experiences in Philadelphia communities, and raise awareness about the social justice issues that impact the AAPI community, as well as the intersections of such issues and opportunities for meaningful allyship among the AAPI and African-American communities, and other communities of color. Each day will feature a different Asian or Pacific Island country/region/culture, focusing on some element of history, culture and social justice.
