The Asian Feast debuts at the Gualala Arts Center on Saturday, March 23 at 6:00 p.m.
This upscale dinner fundraiser benefits Action Network and Gualala Arts and will showcase the culinary talents of noted Bay Area restaurateur and caterer Alice Chan of Tin's Tea House Catering, Kwanjai and Jay of Anchor Bay's Thai Kitchen, and Gualala's Pazzo Marco Creamery.
Alice Chan is known for her Tin's Tea House restaurants in Oakland and Walnut Creek, CA, with the Walnut Creek location being the first certified "green" restaurant in Contra Costa County. She catered Governor Gerald Brown's wedding and mayoral inauguration.
Alice has been in the hospitality field for over 30 years, and is known for her innovative and artistic interpretations of Asian cuisine.
For this Asian Feast she will be overseeing the creation of a variety of Dim Sum, appetizers and main courses, including her famous "Fish on Fire," in conjunction with the Gualala Arts Culinary Guild.
Anchor Bay's Thai Kitchen will contribute its locally famous spring rolls and Thai green curry with eggplant.
Pazzo Marco Creamery
will complete the feast with its specially created green tea gelato.
Attendees will enjoy unique entertainment in addition to a sumptuous Feast. Ben's Shaolin Kung Fu from the Bay Area will present a professional kung fu exhibition and will also wow the audience with a Lion Dance performance.
This ancient Chinese Dance tradition is often performed by kung fu practitioners to chase away the evil sprits and bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year.
This Feast will benefit both Action Network and Gualala Arts. Action Network's mission is to build a thriving, healthy commUNITY by nurturing people, networking organizations, and taking action to secure local services for the Redwood Coast.
