Cooking Along With Chef Ming TsaiVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Asia Society's Virtual Cooking Series during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
***Open to the public, but registration required***
In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in May, Asia Society is excited to host a series of virtual cooking programs across its centers in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
Programs will focus on the versatility and universality of rice across the region — featuring discussions on the ingredient's significance or history in a particular culture as well as step-by-step cooking tutorials.
As part of this virtual food series, Asia Society New York will host Chef Ming Tsai, James Beard & Emmy Award-Winning chef.
Chef Tsai will show our virtual audience how to prepare his signature MingsBings (with a brown rice wrapper) and end with Lobster & Pork Fried Rice.
This program is complimentary and open to the global community. We hope you will join Asia Society in celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM)!
Rice is the staple food for over half of the world's population, as well as a lucrative export for many Asian countries. The harvesting and consumption of rice traces back more than 10,000 years in East Asia, spreading across the Asian continent over time and later, the rest of the world. Since ancient times, rice has been considered divine or associated with women and fertility. Festivals throughout Asia celebrate the rice harvest, and the consumption of rice has shaped cultures and dietary habits across Asia.
A variety of popular dishes around the world, both sweet and savory, have sprouted from this starchy cereal grain: from fried rice to sticky rice, from sake to biryani. Join Asia Society in celebrating APAHM and in appreciating the cultural and delicious significance of rice around the world!
