Asian Food Beyond Borders

San Francisco's historic Ferry Building is the backdrop for ~ASIAN FOOD BEYOND BORDERS~, a weekend celebration of Asian food and culture. World-renowned food experts will lead the public in a series of provocative conversations, special tastings, and demonstrations. The program includes a wide range of classes, forum discussions, and even a free culinary clinic to help decipher Asian ingredients and utensils at the Ferry Building. The San Francisco Ferry Building is the home base for the weekend’s events, with additional cooking classes, wine tastings, and culinary tours at Sur La Table, Le Colonial, and various locations in Chinatown.

But the highlight is the intimate, full-day symposium on Sunday October 12th, providing attendees with the opportunity to learn from celebrity chefs and food experts such as TV host Martin Yan, author Madhur Jaffrey, Saveur editor-in-chief James Oseland, and Google executive chef Olivia Wu. Attendees will enjoy breakfast, lunch, and a selection of snacks between sessions. Â

(Party bonus: symposium attendees get access to the exclusive VIP party on Saturday Oct. 11th, 6:30pm–8:30pm at the Ferry Building's North Arcade.)
