Charles Phan, chef and author of "Vietnamese Home Cooking" prepares a meal in San Francisco, California in this undated handout photograph. Phan and his family fled to Guam from Vietnam in 1975 before settling in San Francisco a couple of years later. In 1995 he opened his restaurant Slanted Door, which has won acclaim for its modern interpretation of traditional Vietnamese food. He now runs six other eateries in San Francisco.
