Event description

Description

In conjunction with the Royal Alberta Museum, the Friends of Royal Alberta Museum Society (FRAMS) is hosting dinners during 2017-18 to celebrate and explore the diverse ethnic flavours of Alberta.
Once again, we are delighted to welcome Linda Tzang, curator of cultural communities at the Royal Alberta Museum, as our dinner guide. Linda will speak at each dinner about the food, where each cuisine originates, and the organization of each authentic meal. Please join us for these delicious culinary journeys!

After a cold holiday season, we need comfort food! For our first dinner of 2018, we return to China to enjoy the comfort food of the north. The Wheat Garden’s menu says it all – focusing on a wide assortment of dumplings, noodles and small dishes found in food bazaars all over Northern China. Jiaozi (dumplings) are served throughout Asia but are a staple of the north. Legend says they were invented by a Chinese sage who made the warm, meat-filled packets to feed the poor during a freezing cold Lunar New Year; to this day they are a staple food of the holiday. For those who’ve had potstickers or Chinese dumplings from a grocery store or at dim sum, northern jiaozi are very different – and it is a rare treat to find a restaurant that makes them by hand.

Menu: Small dishes: Garlic Kelp, Garlic Cucumber, Pickled Cabbage, Braised Beef, Braised Quail Egg, Spicy Tofu; Wonton soup; Assorted Meat Dumplings (beef/chicken/lamb); Steamed Vegetable Dumplings; Zhajiang Mien (noodles with beef, soybean paste sauce and vegetables); Shrimp Fried Rice with chili sauce; Chinese green tea.

Cost: $37 per ticket (includes meal, tea, tax & tip).

Tickets for this event are sold on a first come, first served basis. Please note this is a meal that is served and shared family style so we are unable to accommodate food sensitivities and there are no alternative vegetarian options for the meat dishes.

Please note that this is a cozy restaurant and tickets are limited. You can book here on Eventbrite or telephone FRAMS to reserve tickets, but your reservation is not confirmed until payment is received. Please note: We will not be able to refund any ticket purchases after Monday, January 22.

If you have any questions, or would like further information, please do not hesitate to call the
FRAMS office at 780-453-9103 or email: frams.office@gmail.com.

Please note: We try to accommodate all seating requests; if you have a specific seating request,
