I’m doing an event at the Shanghai Tiffin Club on Saturday, November 7th (yes that is today, sorry for delayed blog post) at CHIAM Chinese Cuisine, 160 East 48th Street. Details below.
Jennifer Lee, an AAJA member and writer for the New York Times, will be speaking at a luncheon to the Shanghai Tiffin Club at 12 Noon, Saturday, November 7th. She is author of “The Fortune Cookie Chronicles,” which is on the New York Times Best Seller List.
Her topic “Chinese Food is as All-American as Apple Pie,” will explore the universal appeal of Chinese cuisine and how the American palate has evolved to accept and embrace the richness and variety of regional Chinese food.
The Shanghai Tiffin Club was originally founded in the 1840s shortly after the end of the Opium War. The tiffins (luncheons) were started by the British Consul General after Shanghai became a Treaty Port so that the foreigners and their Chinese counterparts could gather once a month outside of the strictures of business to help foster understanding and commonalities in a social atmosphere. The New York Chapter was formed in 1924 and continues the original charter and founding tradition.
If interested, or want more details, please contact William Chu (billchuw at cs dot com) ASAP. The event will be held at CHIAM Chinese Cuisine, 160 East 48th Street (between Lex. & 3rd). Lunch will be served at 12 Noon, followed by Jennifer’s presentation. The cost of food is $30 (cash only).
