Tradition and Fusion Side By Side : Member Lunch With Kimmy Tang
Some of the most brilliant chefs in Los Angeles are innovating on ancient recipes – but if you aren’t familiar with the original ideas, you don’t know where tradition stops and inspiration begins. It’s extremely rare to taste the traditional form of an item and the modern experience side by side.
One of those rare chances will be on November 11th, when the Culinary Historians of Southern California enjoy lunch at Chef Kimmy Tang’s Bistro Mon Cheri. Kimmy burst on the scene at her restaurant Michelia before starting the 9021Pho chain, and she has continued her culinary explorations at her new restaurant. At this lunch she will offer a rare insight into the creative process that has made her a rising star in one of the world’s most competitive restaurant communities.
The menu includes both traditional and fusion versions of all of the following:
Fresh Roll with Shrimp (Goi Cuon)
Pork wrapped with Rice paper.
Indochine Salad (Chicken, cabbage, mints)
Pork stew (Thit Kho)
Pepper Mignon (Bo Luc Lack)
Chef Kimmy Tang will explain her creative process during the event, so we will get a chance to learn about the creative process of being a chef as well as enjoy a tasting of her food.
Because this is a special menu, we apologize that we can not make any accommodations for special diets.
This event is open only to members and guests of the Culinary Historians of Southern California. To become a member, visit us at www.chsocal.org/become-a-member.
