Woks & Lox is a Jewish-Chinese holiday feast put on by our friends and couple Veronica Chan and Jeff Orlick. The two came up with the idea a few years ago as a way to give Christmas orphans in New York something to do while also celebrating their Chinese and Jewish heritage through a fusion menu. It's been so successful (check the event's press coverage!), they have continued the tradition.
The past couple of years they have collaborated with Chef Chichi Wang on a vegetarian menu served at Queen's Kickshaw and this year they will be holding Woks & Lox at historic Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown on Dec 8th at 10PM with a meal prepared by Chef Chichi and Noah Arenstein of Scharf & Zoyer. This year, the menu will also have both veg and meat dishes and will be served with a special Jewish-Chinese brew from Single Cut Brewery.
In addition, there will be fun games and a Chinese auction where a bottle of Brooklyn Delhi tomato achaar will be one of the prizes paired with Diana Kuan's 'dumplings around the world tote bag' from her new site Plate & Pencil - an Indo-Chinese gift at a Jewish-Chinese dinner seems totally fitting:)
Diana and I are co-hosts of Tangra, a seasonal vegetarian Indo-Chinese pop-up dinner series so we were excited to team up on this sponsorship for Woks & Lox.
There will be tons more prizes auctioned off from other Woks & Lox sponsors.
If you find yourself on the orphan list this holiday, consider purchasing a ticket:
