In Chinese, the saying Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy refers not only to the delicate balance of flavors that defines Chinese cooking but also the ups and downs of life. Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy: Stories of Chinese Food and Identity in America 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 culinary stars to generational home cooks. Join curators Herb Tam and Andrew Rebatta for a tour and dinner table conversation around the immigration experiences, food memories, favorite dishes, and cooking inspirations that define the culinary—and personal—identities of these chefs.
Reception at 4:30pm, tour at 5pm.
