Sweet and Salty: A Conversation with Asian American Women Chefs (online)

Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 5:00pm

This is a past event.

USC Pacific Asia Museum
46 N Los Robles Ave, Pasadena, California 91101

Join a wide-ranging food conversation and cooking demonstration with L.A.-based chefs Cecilia Leung, Isa Fabro, and Sonoko Sakai, moderated by journalist Jean Trinh. In addition to discussing the cross-cultural aspects of culinary culture, the chefs will explore the impact of cooking on identity and memory. So many of our memories and cultural traditions are connected to food and cooking—often done by our mothers and grandmothers, while most of the professional cooking world is dominated by men. This conversation will feature women who are combining an appreciation for tradition and their cultural backgrounds with creativity and innovation as professional chefs gaining attention in Los Angeles.

Following the conversation, Chef Cecilia will teach you how to whip up some delicious homemade wontons. Be sure to come hungry and stay tuned for this tasty interactive cooking segment!

Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by the USC Pacific Asia Museum. Co-sponsored by Asian Pacific American Student Services.
