Even though women have been captains of the kitchen far longer than men, too many are forgotten by history or glossed over in favor of their male counterparts. After years of watching this dynamic play out in his own career, chef Tu David Phu (and a cadre of fellow Oakland chefs) will journey to the Beard House to curate a storytelling and dining experience celebrating the generational wisdom and innovative techniques passed down by kitchen matriarchs from Cambodia, Singapore, Palestine, and Vietnam.
Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.
