Last July, my husband and I had a marvelous vacation in Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas. I wrote about visiting historic sites like Gettysburg and enjoying amazing southern food and hospitality.
One thing I didn’t emphasize enough was the Smithsonian Museum’s programs on the Asian American experience. It was newish at the time and in the Natural History Museum, I lingered at a wall exhibit on Asian American food, reading up on noteworthy chef, restaurateurs, and celebrities such as Cecilia Chiang, Martin Yan and David Chang. It’s not like the Asian-American food experience is totally different than that of other people in the U.S. but it comes in different flavors.
