Influential D.C. chef and restaurateur Erik Bruner-Yang returns to Hill Center to lead a Cambodian inspired class celebrating Khmer New Year which is observed April 14-16. In Khmer, it is called ‘ChaulChnam Thmey’ which means “enter the new year.” Erik is a multi James Beard Foundation award nominee and the chef-owner of Cambodian/Taiwanese influenced Maketto. He is the CEO of Foreign National, a concept development group curating food and drink, culture and art, promoting a strong, healthy and viable community.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Erik started a non-profit organization called the Power of 10 Initiative. Over the past year this new initiative has provided over $1.2 million dollars in grants to restaurants all across the United States, and has provided well over 350,000 meals to communities in need.
Over the past 10 years, Erik has taught numerous Hill Center cooking classes and contributed several recipes to our cookbook, A Taste of Hill Center, including Sawmlaw M’choo Kroueng (Traditional Cambodian Soup), and Lime-Marinated Fish Salad.
Erik’s classes sell out quickly, so don’t hesitate to purchase your tickets ASAP.
As this class is in-person, we require all attendees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. This class requires at least 6 participants.
