CAAMFeast Awards: Stories, Food & You is an annual cocktail gathering and culinary awards ceremony benefiting the Center for Asian American Media. Launched in 2013, CAAMFeast pays tribute to the stories behind today’s Asian American culinary luminaries and highlights their undeniable contributions to our ever-expanding culinary landscape. This one-of-a-kind evening features delectable tastings from award-winning restaurants and a moving, multi-media tribute to the year’s honorees. Attendees rub elbows with icons and game changers of the food world and participate in an exciting live auction, featuring exclusive tours, travel packages and coveted dining experiences at the Bay Area’s hottest restaurants.
Our 2017 honorees draw upon the deep history of food activism in the Bay Area, reimagining not only what we eat but also bringing to light the complex rituals, history and barriers that comprise our diverse cultural practices and current food system. Through community meals and workforce development, their work lifts up the Asian American community and beyond, providing pathways toward more just and equitable foodways.
Join the Center for Asian American Media as we honor Chef Roy Choi, the Asian Chefs Association and The People’s Kitchen Collective. These culinary personalities who are rewriting the conversation around Asian American food.
