Jennifer 8 Lee Returns - the modern symposium project continues...
one pot + jennifer 8 lee returns + the fortune cookie chronicles = november 24th.
the last time we had jennifer (and her nytimes best selling book) at dinner I turned away over 150 requests - her insanely engaging book about chinese food in america made a huge splash in the emerald city - six months later we are lucky to get jennifer for a repeat performance - since her last visit her book has appeared everywhere and received endless praise.
we are lucky to have a return visit by the chef du jour scott emerick of cremant - expect some nw-franco-chinese versioning - and don't be scared - jennifer will make it very clear that sampling and appropriation are core to chinese food.
jennifer gives an amazing multi-media presentation - expect to leave with a completely different perspective on chinese food, america, life. (thanks again to mrs. kim ricketts for making this one go...)
$60 - includes her book - byow. email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve.
