“Where should I eat in Chinatown?” is a question Chewing the Fat co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng hear often as Chinese-Americans. In this Season Three premiere, we try to answer not only where, but what and why too. We talk and taste with expert friends, including internationally celebrated Chinese-American chef Ken Hom, who describes in loving detail his Chinatown childhood comfort dish of lap cheong steamed over rice. And New York Times best selling novelist Lisa See, who shares her father’s tomato beef chow mein. Plus author Wen Huang, who explains the northeastern Dongbei trend and dishes, with cumin crusted grilled lamb skewers, and much more. And Will She Eat It? is back, with preserved duck, plus listener guest Eleanor Ou! BTW Monica is half Chinese and half Puerto Rican/Peruvian, more on that in future episodes of Chewing the Fat!
