This Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) will launch the “Rising Chefs Series,” the non-profit organization’s first-ever pop-up series concept in Downtown Los Angeles. The dynamic experience will bring together three emerging Asian American chefs in a 4-week celebration of food, culture and the spirit of innovation.
Week 3 will feature a restaurant concept by Tway Nguyen, a Vietnamese born chef and one of the fastest rising stars in the culinary space. Whether it's at her sold out pop-ups across the US or on her hit People Magazine series "Celeb Eats", her goal is to connect with people through food. Chef Tway Nguyen’s menu is an ode to traditional Vietnamese comfort foods, elevated through innovative flavors and pairings.
