Off the Menu

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Grace Lee, Off the Menu: Asian America takes us on a road trip across the US—from Honolulu, Hawai‘i to Oak Creek, Wisconsin to New York, New York—in an exploration of how family, history, faith, and geography shape our relationships to food and our communities. On October 16, 2015, Lee, producer Eurie Chung, food scholar Krishnendu Ray (NYU Food Studies), chef Jonathan Wu and his partner Wilson Tang (whose innovative restaurant Fung Tu is featured in the film) joined us for a screening of the film. The conversation that followed was moderated by film scholar Chi-hui Yang.
