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

Eater Young Gun, Lucas Sin has been making waves on the culinary scene since he was 16 years old. More recently he is the Chef of fast-casual Chinese chain Junzi, one proud half of pop-up dining series Shy Boyz Club, and pioneered the wildly successful #DistanceDining series that brings hospitality directly to diners’ homes during this pandemic. 

Nom Wah alum, Calvin Eng is the 25-year-old wunderkind currently at the helm of cult favorite, Win Son. Since taking over the restaurant, Calvin has brought his unique perspective (professional culinary training x Asian-auntie techniques x Cantonese roots) to the Win Son menu. Calvin is also the proud creator of cannabis infused chili oil, Loud Gan Ma, inspired by the legendary Lao Gan Ma chili crisp - only better.  

In this class, you will learn how to make one of New Orleans’ best kept secrets – Yaka Mein, an intensely flavourful beef noodle soup that is the love child of both Asian and Creole cuisines. Served almost exclusively by Black chefs in New Orleans, this dish is known as one of the best hangover cures out there. 

During this class, Lucas and Calvin will share their take on this dish (a remix on a remix, if you will), and speak to the history behind a dish that symbolizes the meshing of two communities out of necessity. 

Both chefs will be cooking with you in real time, you will be able to ask them questions directly and get feedback on your food.
