A Taste of Thai

Chef Genevieve is constantly using her entrepreneurial skills to give back to the community and inspire others with her dynamic Thai-style cooking. Her award winning restaurant, Bangkok 96, in Dearborn, MI, is consistently voted #1 Thai restaurant by the locals. Her commitment to healthy, innovative and high quality foods has brought her recognition even in Hollywood. The food that was prepared in the movie Gran Torino with the legendary Clint Eastwood was made by her. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience to be on set next to Clint.
Genevieve became a refugee in Thailand for two years during the Vietnam War, later fled to Paris and then settled in Detroit. To spread the message of hope and beauty to the rest of the world, in 2011, Chef Genevieve created a gluten free frozen food line called Thai Feast to show the world how significant Thai cuisine has been to Genevieve Vang’s life. Recently, she created new vegan, allergen-free Asian broth and sauce powders where you just add water. Join Chef Genevieve on stage to learn how you can cook up some easy healthy Thai dishes without the worries of allergens, and learn the tricks to carving a fruit and vegetable into beautiful edible flowers within minutes.

Cooking for Two

Warren Caterson is a chef and full-time writer who studied at the Southeast Institute of Culinary Arts. Recently he noticed a shift in the home cooking world. For whatever reason, people wanted to rediscover the joy of cooking.

Recognizing that need, Chef Warren wrote the award-winning cookbooks Table for Two – The Cookbook for Couples and Table for Two - Back for Seconds, each featuring over 235 recipes using fresh and readily available ingredients. Now he has taken his passion on the road with an entertaining and energetic presentation that will inspire your inner chef while tickling your taste buds.

Join Chef Warren as he shares recipes, dozens of kitchen tips, cooking hints and humorous anecdotes about the joys and challenges of cooking for two. Chef Warren will answer such questions as: Is it possible to chop onions without tears? Are pre-packaged frozen entrées really time and money savers? What is the best upgrade for my kitchen? How do I preserve all that leftover fresh parsley when I've only used a teaspoon or two? And, should I cook with wine, and if so, what kind should I use? Catch him at the Stonebridge Kitchen and Bath Cooking Stage on Friday and Saturday.
