Prize winning noodles

Chef Hou Chun-sheng
One of Taiwan's top culinary artists, Chef Hou Chun-sheng, winner of the 2011 Taipei Beef Noodle Soup Competition, will visit Washington, DC on February 15 to serve his version of beef noodles during a reception at the Smithsonian Institution's Freer Gallery. 

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.
