The Chinese invented distilling over 2,000 years ago, but the spirits made there, despite being the world’s most widely consumed strong drink, are little-known outside the country. We’ll sample traditional baijiu and see how it’s used in 21st-century mixology during the next installment of Touring the Cocktail: MOTAC Los Angeles. The evening begins at 6:30pm with gourmet appetizers from Hakkasan, followed by an explanation of traditional baijiu and a demonstration of its use in modern cocktails. Seating is limited to 30, so reserve in advance to avoid disappointment!
Recut, retuned, and refreshed: see Chefs from local restaurants and the SoFAB staff demonstrate a variety of unusual cooking utensils in SoFAB Media’s relaunched “From the Back of the Drawer” series. Videos can all be found here.
