From the organizers:
Grace Young, deemed the “Poet Laureate of the Wok,” will share the fascinating story of the wok, from its traditional uses in China to its evolution in America. For 2000 years, the wok has been the iron thread that unites Chinese home cooks, but today it is an endangered pan both in China and in America. The story of how Chinese Americans became disconnected from their iconic culinary tool serves as a springboard for a stir-fry demonstration and tasting of one of their most unusual and delectable diaspora stir-fries, Chinese Trinidadian Shrimp with Rum. Grace will do a book signing following the event.
