Emmeline Eao


Emmy Eao is an artist and organizer with big thoughts and even bigger feelings.


What will you be presenting on? I'm going to talk about getting to know my self and my Khmer-ness as an adult, my grandmother's legacy, and how place informs identity.

Best piece of advice you ever got about cooking: Taste everything, and make enough for a party.

If you could only eat one meal forever, it would be: Kuy Teav (Cambodian beef noodle soup) with lots of black pepper, lime, and extra fried garlic

Favorite food: Onions and garlic, luc lac by my dad, good caesars, roasted veggies, fish sauce based anything

Best meals: Khao piak sen noodles in Laos after getting caught in a rainstorm

Food you’d like to try: Pickles of the world!
