Edward Lee - Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef's Journey to Discover America's New Melting-Pot Cuisine — in conversation with Susan Able — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Lee follows up his Korean-Southern cookbook, Smoke & Pickles, with a sixteen-stop tour of the evolving culinary landscape of America. Looking specifically for immigrant foods, Lee samples Cambodian cuisine in Lowell, Massachusetts; Lebanese dishes in Clarksdale, Mississippi; and tastes the pepperoni rolls Italian immigrants take for lunch to the mines of West Virginia. Lee, chef/owner of three restaurants in Louisville and culinary director of Succotash in National Harbor and D.C.’s Penn Quarter, explores how the dishes and techniques of different cultures influence each other as well as changing and absorbing the habits of longer-settled cuisines. He also introduces the people behind the foods, telling their stories and showing what their traditions, memories, and new experiences contribute to what they eat.

Lee will be in conversation with Susan Able, publisher and editor of Edible DC.
