Chinese BBQ Demystified
A Patch of the Midwestern Quilt
An occasional series about ethnic cultures
who call the American Midwest home

Please arrive by 6:30 pm for a kitchen tour, program begins promptly 7 pm

(All beverages and any extra dishes (if any) will be billed per table)

Sun Wah BBQ has had a generational shift from its founder Mr. Cheng, a Chinese immigrant from Guangdong province in China, to his American born children: son Michael (BBQ Chef) and daughters Kelly and Chef Laura, who trained at Kendall College.

The children have one foot in Chinese culture and one foot in American, allowing them to convey Chinese BBQ processes expertly.  They will explain traditional BBQ methods and some non-traditional variations, which sometimes were the results of errors with outstanding culinary results.  While they offer whole roasted pigs, they are also able to roast suckling pigs by hand over coals.  While Sun Wah BBQ offers traditional Chinese BBQ, they are also expanding their repertoire to BBQ not always commonly found commercially in America, such as turkeys for Thanksgiving and various other fowl customers bring in from hunting trips.

We will be touring their kitchens, thus comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes are expected.  Please, no hanging sleeves, scarves, shirttails, jewelry, etc., since the kitchen will have open flames and marinade barrels.

The Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance is dedicated to celebrating, exploring and preserving the American Midwests unique food traditions and their cultural contexts

There will be no refunds.
