Eating Seasonally with Traditional Chinese Medicine

  • 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm | Wednesday October 13, 2021
  • Demo Kitchen | Ace Hotel Brooklyn
  • $60

A monthly eating workshop to learn how to really align our body with the changes in nature, beyond just eating the in-season produce.

The Chinese calendar divides the year into 24 seasonal points 二十四节气 (also called “solar terms”). These 2-week long seasonal periods make up the 5 seasons and each of these are associated with certain foods. Learn the culinary wisdom behind those seasonal points with Traditional Chinese Medicine chef and nutritionist Zoey Gong. Let us eat with season and tune-in to mother nature!

For this first workshop, we will be making Medicinal Mochi Stuffed Jujube Dates. Ticket price includes ingredients for the workshop.

Zoey Gong is a Traditional Chinese Medicine chef and nutritionist. Born in Shanghai, China, she now lives in New York City, where she hosts pop-up medicinal dinners and collaborates with various brands to teach the wisdom of medicinal cooking. She is the founder of Five Seasons TCM, a boutique wellness brand that shares and modernizes the knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) food therapy through educational content, functional products and its avant-garde aesthetic.
