About Yia Vang

"You can say that I was meant to be a cook - it was something I was “destined” to be. My name, Yia, when translated in my native language (Hmong) literally means “iron skillet or frying pan”. Food has been a large part of my life and no matter what I’ve done in life I’ve always come back to the dinner table as a gauge for understanding my world view."
