|Chef Hou Chun-sheng|
The noodle preparation demonstration and tasting will be followed by a screening of Eat Drink Man Woman (1994, 124 minutes).
Stew-style beef noodle soup (or hung shao new row mien) is widely considered a national dish in Taiwan, where it was first created. It is a must-eat for international gourmets and the perfect dish to prepare viewers for Eat Drink Man Woman – Taiwanese Director Ang Lee's food-centered film about an elderly chef and his family as they experience the trials and joys of life in modern Taiwan.
This evening of home-style Taiwan food culture will be held on Wednesday, February 15 at 6:00pm at the Freer Gallery. It is free and open to the public, presented by the Smithsonian Institution's Freer Gallery and by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office. For more information contact Ms. Thalia Lin.
