Lucky Red Cakes

Last night Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO hosted a party for Jennifer 8. Lee’s The Fortune Cookie Chronicles.  It was a great event with Chinese ice cream, Thai beer, and lucky cakes from the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.  Lee showed footage from her research into the true origins of General Tso’s chicken, chop suey and fortune cookies among others.  It’s a great story about cultural adaptation and reminds us all that immigrants who speak with accents don’t necessarily think with them.
