Digging Into Chinese Food

If your concept of Chinese food lives in a mall, let Crane House educate you on what organizers say is this cuisine’s “ancient pedigree, and many of its still-current ingredients that date back to the Stone and Bronze ages.” Archaeologist Bob Jones will explain how Chinese cuisine has maintained its consistency over 8,000 years, while evolving with the gastronomical times. After the talk, you can sample ancient versions of Chinese food, made from archaeological and historical records.
