Foodways: A Celebration of Our Roots

In Vietnamese culture, food is a significant part of how families share recipes, history, and ancestral stories. Often times, Queer and Trans Vietnamese (QTViệt) communities are ostracized and shunned from this sacred kitchen. We strongly believe that the QTViệt community should be able to access food rituals and honor ancestral foodways. Below are several stories of our cook hub.


We learned how to make Bánh Tét Chay (Vegetarian Glutinous Rice Cake) with QTViệts, elders, and allies.

Learn how to make Cơm Hến (Baby Clam w/ Rice), a dish from Central Vietnam, as taught by our elders.
