by Saeng Douangdara

I am so honored and humbled to bring more awareness to and around Laos through our cuisine, culture and community. Through the years I have been very fortunate in getting the opportunity to share about Laos and more through different segments below from the Price is Right and the Hallmark Channel to KTLA5! Please watch, re-share and like the following videos! If there are any other media opportunities where you feel I can bring Lao food to the front stage, comment below!
