Clip: Special | 3m 55s  | Video has closed captioning.

Lidia is invited to the home of Christine Ha in Houston, TX, where they make Thit Kho, a braised pork belly dish together. Ha grew up eating Vietnamese food and took it for granted until she was 14 and her mother died. Teaching herself to cook, and then as an adult adjusting to vision loss, Ha set out to recreate her mother's dishes, using Vietnamese cookbooks and her father's memories.

To celebrate and the adventures she had making 'Flavors That Define Us', Lidia organizes a potluck-style meal, in Washington D.C., where immigrants, now new friends, share food that is meaningful to them.
