Chinatown, It’s not Just Food

10 Apr

Producer: Mike Blockstein

Editor: David Lawrence

A Chinatown Banquet is a series of short educational films about Boston Chinatown, sparking learning and dialogue across generations, disciplines and geography.  The Banquet offers an unprecedented glimpse into the history, culture, and character of the neighborhood.  This multimedia project highlights the Asian American experience and Chinese culture in Boston and was created as an educational tool by youth in the Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC or AsianCDC) Young Leaders Network (YLN) which has grown to become A-VOYCE (Asian Voices of Organized Youth for Community Empowerment). These “courses,” offering a rich view of the forces that shaped and continue to influence Chinatown, consist of audio and video interviews with community members and others who offer insight into specific issues, interspersed with contemporary and historic footage, images and information, music and ambient sounds. As a part of the Chinatown Heritage Project, the Banquet is a compendium of Chinatown’s history, political struggles, culture and physical environment and living conditions.

Sichuan Boiled Spicy Fish

31 Mar

I can still remember the first time I ate this dish in a Sichuan restaurant newly opened near my home.  The fish was so hot that I could not stop eating it. My family all love spicy food even though we live in Nanking where most of the people prefer sweet food. If you love this dish like me, let’s spend some time together and make the dish by ourselves.

First Lady: Liyuan Peng

28 Mar

Liyuan Peng, a famous Chinese folk song singer and the current First Lady of China, not only overshadowed her husband’s momentum during their first public travel, but also caused a new fashion trend in China. Without LV, Chanel or Prada, these luxurious bands, Chinese ladies can also be the most eye-catching spot. No matter where she stands, you just cannot ignore her.
