Part 1 of Chef Andrew’s journey to Vietnam on FAMILY INGREDIENTS airs this Wednesday on PBS Hawai’i at 7:30pm! The episode will focus on Andrew going solo to Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) with Chef Ed Kenney to check out the southern style Pho noodle soup that we are most familiar with in the U.S. Part 2 will air next week at the same time, where Andrew joins Mama Le and family to trek through Hanoi, Mama’s birthplace.
In addition, Hawaii Food and Wine Festival starts this week and Chef Andrew is part of the 7-Eleven Presents Steamy Bowls this Friday, November 3!
Culture and heritage take front stage as seven chefs from diverse backgrounds create dishes that reflect who they are and where they come from. Ramen (Japan / China), rice noodles (Vietnam), and sopa (Mexican) are some of the dishes our chefs will put a spin on. Chung Chow (Noreetuh, NY), Ricardo Zarate (Rosaline, CA), Andrew Le (The Pig & the Lady, HI) are joined by four other star chefs who will share their life experiences and personalities in a bowl. Come looking hot and steamy as you eat, drink and dance the night away with exciting new cocktails shaken and stirred by our mixology masters. Cocktails and beer provided by Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits Hawaii and Anheuser-Busch.
Finally, we have SELBACH-OSTER WINEMAKER DINNER on November 13 at 6pm! More info on the dinner here:
