Dubbed "The Chinese Lady" by close friends, Lorraine is a former food producer and lifelong cooking teacher who, left wondering how to move her career forward in a world gone digital, turned to the internet for inspiration.
Chinese food-lovers (like you and me) rejoice! There's a magnificent new restaurant in Westfield's Century City Mall serving authentic (really!) Sichuan food, the spicy, garlicky-delicious food of that province in China.
Food has become super cool! We're a curious generation and we'll mix and match different ingredients to see what new concoctions we can come up with. Now whether it's acceptable to our palate is another story, but we are willing to try.
Symbolic food plays a big role in Chinese culture. Foods at the Chinese New Year table are thought to promote happiness, longevity, and other common new year themes. Tea eggs are said to symbolize golden nuggets and are served to promote prosperity and wealth in the new year.
Which is a great reason to take advantage of all the amazing cultural corners of New York City that breathe life into memories of time past. Put on your coat, pull out your gloves, and enjoy the history that this city has to offer.
