You might have seen James Beard Award-winning chef Andy Ricker on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations television series or read about him in Lucky Peach or other food magazines. What distinguishes Ricker from most well-known chefs is his insistence that he is not a chef, just a curator of another culture’s culinary glories. In his case, a passion for authentically presenting northeastern Thai cuisine expresses itself in his multi-city Pok Pok chain of restaurants and his other Thai restaurants in Portland. Farang, the Thai word for white foreigner and Ricker’s nickname in Thailand, explores Ricker’s “obsession with a country, its culture, and food practices.”
