347 - David Nguyen - Chef

1h 8m | May 1, 2024

David Nguyen is a first generation Vietnamese American Cook and Content Creator. His culinary journey started at a young age.

Growing up, he'd watch his mom cook to provide for the family—from selling rice plates as a street vendor in Vietnam to cooking for family gatherings. She is his biggest inspiration, and the reason why he cooks today. He's been fortunate to have worked for some of the best restaurants in the country, including The French Laundry.

David started filming and sharing his recipes on social media in 2020. With some persistence and a little luck, he now has a community of passionate foodies like himself.


Many of you still have the chance to record and preserve the legacies of your own families. I’ve just begun to sit with families now for interview sessions to record the rich histories of parents and explore the lives of the generations that preceded them. Don’t let your family stories go untold! Take a moment to reach out and together we will bring out your family’s story on a recorded journey. - Kenneth Nguyen
