Join us as we celebrate and bring awareness to Hmong Heritage this month. Shirley Yang, a Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts trained caterer and personal chef, will offer an outdoor cooking demonstration of larb, the unofficial national dish of Laos. A small tasting of the dish will be provided, and she will share stories about Hmong food and farming. Afterwards, participants can plant seeds of the herbs used in Yang’s larb recipe.

By using the power of stories, the group aims to broaden perspectives, defuse fears, and build trust so that our community provides a strong, vibrant, and welcoming space for current and future generations. Friday Memorial Library acknowledges its duty in promoting citizenship and literacy and believes that creating a welcoming environment is essential in sustaining a healthy and thriving community.
