CAAM is pleased to honor the legendary Cecilia Chiang (The Mandarin), celebrated entrepreneur George Chen (China Live, Eight Tables by George Chen) and innovative, locavore chef Brandon Jew (Mister Jiu’s). Each honoree represents a distinct style and generation of Chinese cuisine, with approaches as diverse and complex as the culture itself. Our 2016 honorees find inspiration in the unsung narratives of Chinese cuisine, and their contributions transcend the porous border between nations, personal memory and popular culture. In concert with a new generation of Asian American food celebrities, fusion cookbooks, and a turn towards traditional Asian ingredients, they are revolutionizing our gastronomic preferences.
