On Monday August 22nd, the Asian Culinary Forum (ACF) brings you a panel that promises to be interesting and informative, and did we mention there’s food? ~TALKIN BOUT MY GENERATION: CHEFS RE-INVENTING ASIAN CUISINE~ brings together SF culinary innovators Richie Nakano (Hapa Ramen), Wilfred Pacio (Spice Kit), Dennis Lee (Namu), and Sarah Dey (New Delhi) for a conversation about their creative takes on what Asian cuisine and Asian restaurants mean today.
The event will open with a reception featuring tastes from Namu, New Delhi, Spice Kit, Hapa Ramen, Hodo Soy Beanery, Bex Winery, and Momokawa Oregon Craft Saké. Then the panelists will discuss how they are re-defining Asian food using traditional techniques and new flavors. They bring their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and business models to the discussion, from mobile ramen, to a fine dining chef serving street food, to Cal-Korean cuisine, to an SF dining institution passing from one generation to the next. Thy Tran, ACF founder and director, will moderate. The event will wrap up with an extended Q&A session.
6pm-9pm. Tickets ($35) are available online, and typically sell out (so don’t delay!). Ferry Building, upper level, San Francisco.
