Smithsonian: Asian-Latino Food Crossings


Smithsonian: Asian-Latino Food Crossings

24 JULY 2013
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Join me at the National Museum of the American Indian for an exciting discussion on the fusion of Asian and Latino cuisines, as part of the Smithsonian Asian-Latino Festival 2013.

A Conversation about Asian-Latino Food Crossings
“Asian-Latino Fusion” has been a popular restaurant industry concept for over two decades. But Asian and Latino food cultures have a much longer and richer history of intersection, stretching from the farm to the home table, from the mercado to the food truck. “Gourmet Intersections: Asian-Latino Food Crossings” considers Asian-Latino foodways through a broad lens, tracing connections across a range of histories, geographies, and cultures.

Join White House chef Cristeta Comerford, Iron Chef America judge Trevor Corson, Pati’s Mexican Table host Pati Jinich, and journalist and celebrated cookbook author Anupy Singla for a lively discussion about the changing shape of shared food traditions, touching on the restaurant industry, the space of the home, and the migration and evolution of sushi from Japan across the Americas.
