Enter for an Opportunity to Meet Ching at the LUCKYRICE Festival

By: Frank Samperi

Cooking Channel's own Ching-He Huang from Chinese Food Made Easy is joining the ranks of star chefs like David Chang, Daniel Boulud, Marcus Samuelsson and Anthony Bourdain to participate in the second-annual LUCKYRICE Festival, an exciting, week-long tribute to the incredible diversity of Asian culinary culture.

The NYC-based roster of festival events is a Who's Whoin the Asian culinary world today, featuring truly unique events with chefs from Iron Chef Morimoto to Ming Tsai ... see the full list here.

If you'll be in NYC May 6-8, you can enter for an opportunity to win a pair of free tickets to two festival events, and meet Ching yourself!

Here's how: Leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post with a question you would pose to Ching about Chinese cooking. It could be a request for a specific tip on the best way to cook a dish, or a question about how she would tackle a specific ingredient. Get creative, but stick to questions about cooking that would have a broad appeal.

We'll choose our favorite and award a grand prize:

  • A ticket for you and a guest to the Grand Feast on Friday, May 6 at 6-10pm
  • A ticket for you and a guest to Ching's Talk + Taste on Sunday, May 8 at 1-4pm

  • Plus a chance to meet Ching!
