You’re invited to the exhibition opening of, "Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy: Stories of Chinese Food and Identity in America." Enjoy *free admission on October 6 from 11 AM–9 PM.
"Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy," on view from October 6, 2016 through March 26, 2017, challenges how Chinese food is defined and interpreted through the personal stories of more than 30 revered Chinese and Asian American chefs—from Michelin ranked to generational home cooks.
The exhibit weaves together the complex stories through a dynamic video installation featuring pioneering chefs such as Cecilia Chiang, Ken Hom, Anita Lo, Ming Tsai, and Martin Yan; new restaurateurs like Peter Chang, Vivian Ku, and Danny Bowien; and persevering home ...cooks like Biying Ni, Yvette Lee and Ho-chin Yang.
Each chef and 18 different regional cooking styles are represented through unique ceramic sculptures presented on a monumental dining room table. Through these interpretative pieces, the visitor absorbs each chef’s cooking style and experience through their narratives, inspirations, and memories.
