Gourmet Food Circle: Punda Tibetan Restaurant

Speaker’s Name: Chef Tenzing Tsering

Location: Punda Tibetan Restaurant, 3935 47th Avenue, Sunnyside, NY 11104

The Tibetan plateau is the highest region on Earth, with an average elevation of 16,000 feet. At such high altitudes, arable land is scarce, and the difficulty of growing many foods has allowed the Tibetan people to develop a unique local cuisine that revolves around regional staples like flour milled from roasted barley, called tsampa, and meat and dairy from yak, sheep, and goats, which can survive the region’s harsh climate.

On Saturday, February 3, China Institute’s Gourmet Food Circle will get ready for the launch of the Institute’s upcoming exhibition, Art of the Mountain: Through the Chinese Photographer’s Lens, by exploring Tibetan specialties at Punda Tibetan Restaurant in Sunnyside Queens.

China Institute’s Gourmet Food Circle brings together curious foodies with an adventurous appetite for all things China. Focusing on both Chinese and Chinese-inspired cuisine, we delve into the local New York food scene to create a cultivated, gourmet experience for participants to learn, taste, and explore.

Note: If you have allergies or other dietary restrictions, please contact China Institute in advance so that we can work to accommodate your needs.

GFC Refund Policy: Due to the built-in food costs associated with this event, cancellations within 48 hours prior to the start of the event will not be refunded.
