A Tasty Exploration of the Asian Lunar New Year
Join us for a fascinating discussion of Lunar New Year, celebrated by Asian cultures throughout the world. Lunar New Year is a time for reunion and renewal with loved ones and friends, and food plays an essential and meaningful role in these celebrations.
We'll spend an intriguing evening with Thy Tran, director of the Asian Culinary Forum and proprietor of Wandering Spoon (http://www.wanderingspoon.com) as she discusses various cultures approaches to the celebration of Asian Lunar New Year, and the significance of the foods they eat during this very important holiday season.
Ms. Tran's presentation will be followed by a tasting of a delicious selection of Lunar New Year dishes, including Chinese jaozi (Bejing-style boiled dumplings); Korean duk gook (rice cake soup); Nepalese alu kauli ko tarkari (potatoes and cauliflower cooked with tomatoes, cilantro, and roasted cumin and coriander); and Vietnamese banh chung (sticky rice cakes with pork meat and green beans). Attendees will also have an opportunity to enjoy Asian beer with their meal.
