10/10/2019 - San Diego Asian Film Festival: Chew the Scene
The San Diego Asian Film Festival — the largest showcase of Asian cinema on the West Coast — kicks off its 20th year(!) with the sixth annual Chew the Scene launch party. "This year, I have seen the emergence of exciting culinary concepts in San Diego, bringing together Filipino and Mexican sensibilities, or Vietnamese and Korean flavors," says Brian "Emeril" Hu, Pac Arts' artistic director. Thank Ozu that more thought goes into Hu's ability to book titles than event-naming. C'mon, Pac Arts Movement: throw a bit of wit into the mix. Surely SDAFF could get away with calling it "Chu the Scene" or even "Chow Yon Fat;" "Chew the Scene" sounds more like the Reader's annual food issue. Still, who cares what it's called? With over 20 participating restaurants, the chances that you'll leave hungry are slim.

Admission/Cost: $40 - $80

09/14/2019 - Dim Sum for Kids Class
Inspired by a quote from the popular Disney movie Aladdin, "like so many things, it is not what's outside, but what is inside that counts." This is certainly the case when it comes to dim sum! In this class, you and your kid chef will make steamed bao buns: balls of steamed & cooked dough discreetly filled with finely chopped veggies and your choice of protein. We pair our soft and satisfying dim sum with a crisp and cool Asian salad, hand-chopped by your kid chef. Each chef wraps up class with moist cupcakes, hand decorated by you and your kid chef with a special Asian flair.

08/11/2019 - Ravioli Making Workshop
In this pasta making workshop attendees will learn how to make the perfect type of pasta dough ideal for raviolis. We will also learn the distinction between hand formed pastas and extruded pastas. We will then begin our hand formed pasta education by making the dough, and then move onto the rolling phase where students will learn to roll the dough to desired thickness for ravioli. After filling the pasta, and forming the raviolis, we will get to taste all our hard work by enjoying a nice family meal together. Each student will still be able to take home fresh pasta as well as cooking and storing instructions. Each participant is encouraged to bring their own to go containers to take their pasta home with them at the end of the workshop.
