Yes, it is officially too hot to go outside. So stay indoors and soak up some A/C: learn about Vietnamese cuisine’s roots and its’ evolving presence in southeast Louisiana this Saturday, June 2, 2012, at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum (2 pm; details here).
Panelists will include Erica J. Peters, author of Appetites & Aspirations in Vietnam, Daniel Nguyen of the Mary Queen of Vietnam Development Corporation, and historian Rien Fertel.
Need additional enticement to go outside? Lilly’s Cafe (1813 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA) will provide Vietnamese refreshments after the program.
