    Interviewing Martin Yan Today @ The Asia Society

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | March 26, 2009

    Tonight, I’m doing an event at the Asia Society where I interview Martin Yan. Deails below.

    Asian Food Series: An Evening with Star Chef Martin Yan, Ambassador of Chinese Food and Culture
    Co-presented by New Asian Cuisine; sponsored by Tsing Tao Beer
    March 26th 6-8 p.m.
    Asia Society, 725 Park Ave, New York
    Cost: $15 members; $30 nonmembers; $15 students (w/ID)

    Although the Chinese restaurant industry represents 45,000 Chinese restaurants across the US, which generate over $20 billion in annual sales, most American diners still think of Chinese food as a cheap take-out of chow mein, spring rolls, and fortune cookies. While Chinese food has reinvented itself many times over on the Asian culinary scene —whose amazing growth was fueled by the recent economic boom— its counterpart in the US has not yet achieved the same stature.

    Join New York Times reporter and author of “The Fortune Cookie Chronicles” Jennifer 8 Lee in a conversation with world-renowned chef Martin Yan, a celebrated host of over 3000 cooking shows broadcast worldwide, author of over 30 cookbooks, and, most recently, founder and Chairman of Martin Yan’s Culinary Arts Center in Shenzhen, China. Chef Yan has launched his center to promote the Chinese culinary arts in response to the world’s fascination with Chinese heritage and cuisine. There will be a live food demonstration.
