Like the owl, my mom asked, “Who won the aprons?” I stayed at my parents’s home this weekend, a little retreat after doing 3 banh mi events in 3 days; I did private events at Google LAX and for Los Angeles journalists, as well as a public demo at Surfas Culinary Center. I was a little busy to say the least, and when I checked in with the voting, there was some serious campaigning going on. Many people worked super hard to get family and friends to vote. By 5pm on Sunday, five winners emerged.
When I notified them, I was curious about who they were and their Viet food story. So I asked and got a few great responses.
