Introducing 92Y Fridges: A New Video Series From 92Y
New York Times Metro Reporter Jennifer 8. Lee, author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, is the first subject in 92Y Fridges; a brand new 92Y video series. The concept for the video was simple; with video camera in hand, open up the fridges of foodies and non-foodies alike to see what is in there, bring you all the delectable, (or not so delectable) details! In the video above, we even scored the gratuitous bottle of champagne shot that has become a famous must have accoutrement in a well known television series of similar fashion.
On Dec 20, Lee will be at 92Y to talk about her book and these connections between Jews and Chinese food. During an overview of the talk she gave on video, Lee informed us the book: “...tries to answer the question, why is chow mein the chosen food of the chosen people?”
