Welcoming the Year of the Tiger with Grace Young – Preserving Family Recipes and Chinese Activism
January 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
On October 23, 2021, Grace Young was named the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals because she has spent her career “in service to enrich the culinary world”. Grace will share and demonstrate with us how her desire to document her parent’s traditional Cantonese dishes led to an award winning cookbook and her father’s wok becoming part of Chinese American culinary history housed at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Grace’s dedication in preserving Chinese traditional recipes has grown into the preservation of Chinese small businesses which are part of America’s rich and diverse heritage.
