Hawker Fare: Stories & Recipes from a Refugee Chef’s Isan Thai & Lao Roots

Book Talk with Chef James Syhabout and Eastwind Books of Berkeley Fundraiser

Saturday, June 23, 2018

Eastwind Books of Berkeley welcomes Oakland-grown, Michelin-starred Chef James Syhabout for a book talk on his journey to his Isan Thai and Lao roots, the inspiration for his hugely popular Hawker Fare restaurant. Program introduction by Professor Lok Siu, an Associate Professor at the UC Berkeley Department of Ethnic Studies and Affiliated Faculty of Berkeley Food Institute. Please join us for this community celebration and fundraiser for Eastwind Books of Berkeley.

Sponsored by: Oakland Asian Cultural Center and the Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies at UC Berkeley

James Syhabout’s Hawker Fare restaurant in San Francisco is the product of his unique family history and diverse career experience. Born into two distinct but related Asian cultures—from his mother’s ancestral village in Isan, Thailand’s northeast region, and his father’s home in Pakse, Laos—he and his family landed in Oakland in 1981 in a community of other refugees from the Vietnam War.
