About Chris Her
As a 2nd generation Hmong-American, the identity crisis of finding which culture I belonged to stressed me as I grew up. I didn't have a country I could point to on a map to make it clear as to where my people are from. The beauty with food is that it doesn't have any borders, just like the Hmong people. Union Kitchen has taught me that Hmong people are culture cultivators and we adapt to our community. As a 2nd generation Hmong-American I'm able to forge the future of my culture and I believe the perfect tool for that is food.
