Join Chef Hannah Wong ’08 in her kitchen as she demonstrates how to prepare hand-pulled noodles, also called lamian in Chinese. This unique method of making noodles originated in China, where hand-pulled noodles are traditionally served on Lunar New Year to symbolize a long life ahead. In addition to a live cooking demo, Hannah will share how her identity, journey, and passions inform her fight for a more expansive and equitable vision of the culinary field and beyond. Participants will also have a chance to learn about two organizations that Hannah is involved in: The Level Up Project, a virtual education initiative and network of individuals committed to removing systemic barriers, and Heart of Dinner, a non-profit combating food insecurity and isolation in New York City’s elderly Asian American community.
Planning to cook alongside Hannah? We recommend making the dough in advance (ideally day-of). You can find the ingredients and recipe here.
This event is organized and sponsored by WAAAAN, the Williams Asian & Asian American Alumni Network.
