Writing Asian American Food (ft. Lillian Li, Ligaya Mishan, Naben Ruthnum, & Rohan Kamicheril)
By Asian American Writers' Workshop
On this episode of AAWW Radio we hear from New York Times Hungry City columnist Ligaya Mishan, Number One Chinese Restaurant author Lilian Li, and Curry: Eating, Reading, and Race author Naben Ruthnum. They read from their work and have a conversation with writer and chef Rohan Kamicheril about "authentic" food, the power dynamics of cultural appropriation, and the role of food as a cultural gateway. Shout out to MSG.
