S2E13 - Legacy of Lotus of Siam - Penny Chua & Sabrina Chutima
The Las Vegas daughters of James Beard Award Winning Chef Saipin Chutima talk about the next generation of authentic Thai food
Lotus Of Siam remains a Las Vegas institution. For many foodies, the Thai restaurant is their first stop after they land here. Chefs Lorraine Moss and Louiie Victa chat with the resilient daughters of Chef Saipin Chutima as they fight to keep their mother's legacy intact in an unprecedented time for small businesses.
Her eldest daughter Penny Chua talks about what it was like cooking at the James Beard House while pregnant at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, how much pressure she feels trying to honor her family, and what she's doing to keep more than a hundred employees working and healthy.
Younger daughter Sabrina explains what it's like learning from a legendary mother and why she knows only about sixty percent of the 100 year old recipes in mom's brain. She also brings something to Show & Tell that's a family heirloom as well as a disciplinary tool?
