Every Wednesday at noon, Food section staff members and guests answer your cooking questions. You can submit a question in advance in the box below. Just remember to return when we’re live, or read the transcript after the chat ends.

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Marian Liu asked chefs and celebrities to share their thoughts on the role food plays in their lives. Several of them will join us for the chat, so bring your cooking questions! Our guests are scheduled to include: Grace Young, food writer, cookbook author; Martin Yan, TV cooking show host, cookbook author; Nong Poonsukwattana, chef, restaurateur, podcast host; and Hamza Khan, aspiring pastry chef.

Food is “the most powerful equalizer and diffuser against discrimination, against hatred,” Yan, an Asian American who appeared on television before celebrity chefs were commonplace, told Liu in the article.

Yan’s motto is “If Yan can cook, so can you!” We couldn’t agree more.
