"I will continue eating my favorite Vietnamese dishes no matter how 'weird' they are. I will continue singing the songs that my grandma sang to me as a child. I will continue speaking the tongue of my parents and ancestors. I will continue growing this tree, for I am a Vietnamese person."
— Katie Nguyễn

Celebrate The Sticky Rice Project Vietnamese Recipe Storybook’s debut in the Twin Cities. Lilian Vo, founder of the Sticky Rice Project, will share the inspiration for the project and read featured stories in the recipe storybook.
In a series of cooking classes and writing workshops, younger and older generations share stories over Vietnamese cuisine. This book includes not only the recipes from the cooking classes but also the rich culture behind the recipes, stories from chefs, and reflections from the youth.
