Critical Encounters: Food, Writing, Intimacy
March 17, 2013 § Leave a comment
Next Tuesday, March 26th, the Critical Encounters series continues with a discussion between critics, academics, and chefs about food! The series, run by Professor Anne Cheng, attempts to bring together people from different backgrounds to discuss issues related to culture, race, and social justice.
Among the speakers featured in this event will be Anita Lo, a current leading Asian American chef. She has written a book entitled Cooking Without Bounds that examines being a woman of color in a culinary world primarily comprised to male, European chefs. Lo runs the restaurant Annisa, located on Manhattan’s Lower West Side, and has studied at the Ecole Ritz-Escoffier in Paris, graduating first in her class with honors.
