Chef, author, philanthropist, travel guide...does Luke Nguyen ever sleep?

Before feasting your eyes on his adventures on Cooking Channel in July, here are
5 Things To Know About Luke Nguyen:

1. Vietnam is not technically his birthplace. Luke is Vietnamese, but was born in a Thai refugee camp after his parents fled Vietnam in 1978. The family then settled in Australia.

2. He comes from a food-obsessed family. Luke’s parents owned restaurants in the Vietnamese neighborhood of Cabramatta (outside of Sydney), and his older sister Pauline is his business partner and cookbook co-author.

3. The menu at Luke’s award-winning Sydney restaurant, Red Lantern, features many dishes he’ll make on the show, such as the classic Vietnamese salad Goi Du Du Tom ThitGreen Papaya Salad with Prawn and Pork.

4. He leads 13-day culinary tours of Vietnam for chefs and food-lovers.

5. In his spare time (which we can’t imagine he has much of!) Luke founded the Little Lantern Foundation, a non-profit that teaches Vietnamese kids skills for success in the restaurant and hospitality industries.

    Unfortunately, the network has opted out of showcasing the exotic and interesting chefs like Luke, Bal Arneson, Ching-He Huang, and Roger Mooking in favor of the same people who have been dominating the Food Network for (seemingly) eons: Rachel Ray, Giada D.L., Bobby Flay. Sad, isn't it? They have totally ruined Saturday morning programming on their network.
