    Beyond Chinese Cuisine @ The Asia Society on May 6

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | May 1, 2008

    Another event at the Asia Society next Tuesday, May 6. (James Oseland, Editor in Chief, Saveur Magazine, is really a very skilled moderator)
    From Silk Road to Steppe: Exploring Cuisines Beyond the Great Wall

    In the West, when we think about food in China, what usually comes to mind are the signature dishes of Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. But beyond the urbanized eastern third of China lie the high open spaces and sacred places of Tibet, the Silk Road oases of Xinjiang, the steppes of Inner Mongolia, and the steeply terraced hills of Yunnan and Guizhou. The peoples who live in these regions are culturally distinct, with their own history and their own unique culinary traditions. The inimitable duo of Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid–who first met as young travelers in Tibet–will discuss the enticing flavors of this other China while presenting riveting photographs chronicling their travels.
