LUCKY CHOW
Northern Thai Cuisine

 

Andy Ricker, a carpenter-turned-chef from Portland, OR, prepares a welcome dinner for the participating chefs at LA’s Lotus of Siam restaurant, with chef/owner Saipin Chutima at the helm. The duo create their collective version of a spicy Issan dish. At the table, Jet Tila rhapsodizes about the days when his family opened America’s first Thai grocery store in Hollywood and introduced lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and other ingredients to the American palate.

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Will the Plastic Bag Ban Work on Oahu?

 

On July 1st, Honolulu will become the last county in the state to enforce a ban on certain types of plastic bags. The law addresses concerns by environmentalists who maintain that plastic bags clutter and damage our land and ocean. But, some island businesses say the law may hurt more than it helps, as they consider raising prices to pay for more expensive, acceptable bags. Moderator Daryl Huff hosts a conversation with supporters and opponents of the law as they discuss the pros and cons of the plastic bag ban on Oahu.
