From our organizers:
Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant celebrates the birth and evolution of Chinese American cuisine, tracing its 170-year history and sparking conversation about food culture, immigration, and what it means to be American.
• Menu Timeline: View a stunning collection of over 100 menus from 1910 to 2016. See how the cuisine evolved as immigration laws changed.
• Project Fortune: Contribute your own message of goodwill to Project Fortune (projectfortune.mofad.org) and a stranger could receive your words of wisdom. Think: message in a bottle, with a cookie as the medium. Admire our 1,500-pound fortune cookie machine, and sample packaged cookies from local manufacturer Wonton Foods, Inc.
• Chow Culinary Studio: Enjoy a chef-designed tasting that highlights Chinese American culinary techniques. Each month, Chow will feature a different recipe.
• Lab’s Lab: On select Sundays, 2-3PM, join us for Lab’s Lab, a workshop series showcasing the experiments and research taking place in the MOFAD Lab’s kitchen. Included in the price of regular Museum admission.
