Chef Charles Phan and other experts told attendees of the 10th annual Worlds of Flavor International Conference and Festival in Napa Valley, Calif., that U.S. diners are experimenting more with flavors and dishes that are outside their comfort zone. "People are very curious about emerging global cuisines from around the world, not only the general [styles], but also regional cuisines from that country of origin," said the event's co-chair, Mai Pham, chef-owner of Lemon Grass Restaurant and Lemon Grass Asian Grill and Noodle Bar. The three-day event was presented by The CIA at Greystone.
