“Asian-Latino Fusion” has been a popular restaurant industry concept for over two decades. But Asian and Latino food cultures have a much longer and richer history of intersection, stretching from the farm to the home table, from the mercado to the food truck. “Gourmet Intersections” considers Asian-Latino foodways through a broad lens, tracing connections across a range of histories, geographies, and cultures.
The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Latino Center will be hosting a lively discussion about the changing shape of shared food traditions, touching on the restaurant industry, the space of the home, and the migration and evolution of sushi from Japan across the Americas.
- Cristeta Comerford, White House Executive Chef
- Trevor Corson, Iron Chef America judge
- Pati Jinich, host of Pati’s Mexican Table
- Anupy Singla, journalist and celebrated cookbook author
The discussion is from 7-8pm with a book signing from 8-8:30pm. Books will be available for purchase. The Mitsitam Coffee Bar will be open until 7pm serving refreshments, beer, wine, and light snacks for purchase.
