Food is a wonderful way to explore and understand the cultural hertigate of community or a country. And that is precisiely what a new 6-part series on food called Lucky Chow does. The series debuted at this year’s Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) film festival. I watched a couple of episodes during the festival and was hooked as I watched Danielle Chang travel across America and explore and show us how Asian cuisine has permeated the nation’s food network in all sorts of interesting ways. Through the food stories we also learn about the culture, history, cuisine of various Asian communities and their journey to America.
Lucky Chow is currently showing on KQED in San Francisco bay area.
