National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP)
On May 17, in the Asian Heritage Month, NAAAP New York hosted a food event celebrating diverse food cultures from the Asian countries. Six Asian restaurants representing Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, China, India and Japan respectively showcased their foods in the event held at Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA). Participants also enjoyed the ongoing MOCA exhibition, “Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy: Stories of Chinese Food and Identity in America” (Ongoing until Sept. 10), and learned about the depth of Asian food cultures while sampling a variety of dishes. NAAAP New York is a nonprofit, all-volunteer, Pan-Asian American professional organization that promotes the career advancement and leadership development of Asian American professionals.
