‘Bon Appétit’ video of white chef explaining how to eat pho is peak cuisine Columbusing

A video about Vietnamese noodle soup pho has Bon Appétit in some pretty hot water. The video featured Tyler Akin, a chef at Philadelphia-based Vietnamese pho restaurant Stock, speaking about his philosophy on pho, which included telling those who eat pho how to eat it properly, which includes not adding Sriracha or hoisin sauce to the broth.

Commenters inundated the video with a range of criticisms — some lighthearted, some more serious.

Bon Appétit has since removed the video and issued an apology on their Facebook page — but here’s where things get even more interesting.
