Happy Family Night market is a day-long event that celebrates the rise and triumph of Asian American cuisine. We will gather chefs, food writers, and curious eaters to share stories over good food and conversation. The event will feature a marketplace with food vendors, artists, and artisans as well as a series of panels, film screenings, and an after party.
“What may be most radical about Asian-American cuisine is the attitude that informs and powers it, reflecting a new cockiness in a population that has historically kept quiet and encouraged to lay low. It’s food that celebrates crunchy cartilage and gelatinous ooze, that openly stinks, that declares: This is what I like to eat. What about you? Do you dare?”
