Rice Paper Scissors Presents:
For our next Private Kitchen, we are celebrating Asian family meals.
In Vietnam, we were fortunate to have Co Tho, our family cook, who constantly amazed us with dishes like clams simmered in freshly squeezed coconut milk and Com Tam (broken rice plates) -- simple, yet mind-blowing meals that we savored, dissected, and looked forward to bringing back to the States.
We also had another kind of family meal. During the course of our month-long trip, we were lucky to be invited to staff meals at the numerous street food stalls we filmed during our trek through the country.
So come and enjoy some of our favorite family meals (like roll your own spring rolls using special paper we brought back from Vietnam) all done family-style, so get ready to fatten your friends up by adding food to their plate, even if they insist they’re full (a true Asian move).
Join us in celebrating the act of cooking and eating together.
