As the sun shines brightly out here in Dubai, we’re bringing you a fun episode with Chef Aphisith Phongsavanh aka Chef AJ, who runs The Legendary Naga, a culinary exploration that intersects Lao cuisine with that of Persia, the Indian subcontinent and the Levant.

Chef AJ was born in Canada to parents who escaped as refugees from Laos; he’s since worked at Chef David Chang’s Momofuku and the Waldorf Astoria in New York, and is now based in Dubai. He’s also an illustrator and a poet, which he occasionally also performs. Grab the episode in your podcast app or on the web
