Chinese X-mas dinner has become a ritual of comfort for all those who don’t celebrate the Christian holiday in the traditional sense. A meal for the displaced, Chinese food on Christmas has become a significant American experience for many.
At 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 20, chef and artist Feng-Feng Yeh (the brainchild behind the Chinese Chorizo Festival) is partnering with local Indigenous chef Rusty Ramirez to bring us a special Chinese Sonoran X-mas Feast.
The dinner will be focused on chiltepin’s native culinary heritage to the southwest while exploring how it can be utilized to evoke Chinese cuisine. This union of Indigenous and Chinese cuisine will tell an intersecting story of resilience of the peoples of Tucson.
Tickets are $175 per person, $250 for couples, and an option to add on wine pairings for $40 (individual) and $80 (a couple).
Each ticket includes a multi-course meal, a Peking Duck demonstration by Forbes Meat Company, a Hand-Pulled Noodles demonstration by chef Yeh, a large selection of vegan and gluten-free dishes, and a gift bag.
The final menu includes Peking duck, hand-pulled noodles, and a thematic tribute to the native chiltepin. Just like last month’s event at Obon, this dinner is destined to be an unforgettable evening.
Maynards is located at 400 N. Toole Ave. To purchase your tickets, visit eventbrite.com.
