Walking Tour of Chinatown with Jennifer 8. Lee

On Sunday, June 21, The FCI's Student Forager Club took a walking/snacking tour of Chinatown with Jennifer 8. Lee, New York Times reporter and author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, a book on the history of Chinese food in the United States and around the world.

What better person to follow around the crowded streets of Chinatown? Jennifer 8. Lee is extremely knowledgeable about Chinese-American culture and cuisine, and can read and speak Chinese fluently. Over the course of a few hours, the lucky students had the opportunity to try many of her favorite places in Chinatown, sampling pulled noodles, dumplings, ice cream, kabobs, and other treats, before heading back to campus.
