Theary Ngeth launched Theary Cambodian Foods to provide comfort and connection for others, and to preserve and share her cultural food traditions. When Theary was 5 years old, she and her family escaped the Khmer Rouge on foot, making a dangerous journey from Cambodia to Thailand and then immigrated to the United States. She became excited about cooking for others when she was recruited to prepare weekly meals for a group of Cambodian seniors. Theary now runs a kiosk at Spice Bridge, a food hall in Tukwila, and aspires to one day have a space of her own.
