Asian Food Adventure – Bánh Xèo – Savory Vietnamese Crepes
April 19, 2022 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM$75.00
Tuesday, April 19, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Asian Food Adventure – Bánh Xèo – Savory Vietnamese Crepes with Chef Jackie Tran. Cost: $75.00 per person.
Bánh xèo is a Vietnamese essential that strangely hasn’t caught on in America like pho or banh mi. But it’s no less tasty or memorable. In fact, it used to be Chef Jackie Tran’s go-to dish to cook whenever he had a date over. It’s fast and easy to make with ingredients you can gather in a single trip to the Asian market.
The thin, turmeric-yellow crispy crepe serves as a canvas for bean sprouts and whatever protein you want — fatty pork and shrimp are the most popular choices. Break off a piece of the crepe, wrap it in some fresh greens and herbs, and dip it into Vietnam’s quintessential sauce, nuoc cham.
Also a renowned food photographer and writer, he’ll also share his tips for creating Instagram-worthy photos.
