    Bravo’s Asian Top Chefs at the NYC Asia Society on Wednesday

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | March 31, 2008

    HungSo the Asia Society, where I am speaking on April 16 with Fucshia Dunlop, is hosting an event highlighting the Asian Americans in Bravo’s Top Chef series on Wednesday at 6 p.m. Among the speakers is Hung, the Vietnamese American who won Top Chef. Details below.

    The popular Bravo reality series “Top Chefs”, along with other food shows on both the big and small screens have fueled the interest of bright and talented young people everywhere to pursue a food industry career. Such popular shows have taken audiences to the “back of the house”, sharing some of the drama that really happens in the kitchen everyday, and the dynamics of different personalities and cultures in a business that depends on team work.

    With the new crop of eager and energetic chefs graduating from cooking schools across the nation, we finally have some fresh faces that draw national attention to the accomplishments of Asian chefs. This program introduces some of these bright, rising stars, who will talk about their responsibilities, challenges and aspirations including how to balance cooking in the kitchen with appearing in front of the camera.
