A bank examiner gone astray, Andrea Nguyen is living out her dream of writing impactful books and teaching others how to cook well. Born in Vietnam, she came to the United States at the age of six. Her acclaimed books include Into the Vietnamese Kitchen, The Banh Mi Handbook, Asian Dumplings, Asian Tofu and The Pho Cookbook, which won a prestigious 2018 James Beard Foundation Award. Andrea has contributed to many publications, including the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Lucky Peach, Saveur, and Cooking Light.

She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in finance and communication management from the University of Southern California, and studied at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
