Kitchen Rodeo Presents: Cooking for Equity – Asian Chefs for Black Lives

This is a 10 part cooking series with some of the nation’s leading Asian Chefs. All events in this series - in solidarity with Black Lives Matter - will support Fair Fight, the anti-voter suppression organization founded by Stacey Abrams, playing a critical role in ensuring fair elections at all levels.   

100% of proceeds from this event will go to Fair Fight

Soon after Amelie Kang arrived in NYC from Tangshan, she quickly noticed the lack of diversity in the city’s Chinese restaurants. After graduating from culinary school, she opened MáLà Project - an homage to the searingly spicy Sichuan dry pot she was nostalgic for. With a goal of creating an authentic, communal experience for diners with and without Chinese roots, MáLà Project (and Amelie!) has since taken the East Village by storm: Amelie was recently named to Forbes 30 Under 30 and MáLà has been written up by The New York Times, Eater and Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand (four years running, NBD)! 

Celebrate Father’s Day with a classic Chinese dish loved by Dads and their families alike. In this class, Amelie will teach you and Dad how to make Beer-Braised Duck (Pi Jiu Ya), an aromatic dish packed with flavor and perfect for the summer.   

According to Chinese Medicine, duck meat is slightly cooling in nature, which balances the heat in our bodies during warmer months. This dish is naturally healing for your spleen, stomach and liver. 

What are you waiting for? Give Dad the gift of health and contribute to a meaningful cause this Father’s Day.
