Lucky Rice Festival
Last Friday was the Lucky Rice Festival. It’s major food festival that started out in New York by Danielle Chang. The festival was held at the San Francisco Ferry Building. Major restaurants and Chefs filled the halls with booths serving their own bite sized horderves. Major names like Morimoto, Michael Mina, Hakkasan, Cathay Pacific, Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas, and many more were there to help kick off the Festival as well as libations and food. I went this year representing House of Nanking and Fang restaurant.
The dish I presented was the Cooling Northern Dumplings with Ginger Soy Dipping Sauce, confit garlic, and cilantro. With the help of my friend Carolyn we pumped out over 700 dumplings to all the guests who attended this Festival.
All and all the event was a lot of fun for me and I feel honored to be a part of such a big group of talented chefs, restaurants, and companies.
