Watch Andy Ricker and JJ Goode Talk Thai Food with Lucky Peach's Peter Meehan

As part of his tour for the Pok Pok cookbook, chef/empire builder Andy Ricker stops by New York City's Strand Books for a playful conversation with co-author JJ Goode and Lucky Peach editor Peter Meehan. Right off the bat, the panelists joke about expectations of the chat — "you are large and white and you have a Thai restaurant," Meehan says — before launching into a history of Thai food in America. Goode and Ricker also talk about their collaboration ("It was love at first sight," Ricker says), Goode's first-ever trip to Thailand, and how to best translate Thai cooking into its basics.
