Francis Lam Sets His Splendid Table In The Bay

Sep 5, 2019

Francis Lam grew up in New Jersey to Chinese immigrant parents who dreamed of him becoming a dentist or lawyer. When he said he wanted to be a writer, well, they weren’t exactly thrilled. But then they saw that first byline and they were convinced.

Francis went on to become a multiple James Beard Award Winning food writer and host of the popular food and culture show The Splendid Table.
