We announced recently that we've partnered up with The Museum of Food and Drink to launch MOFAD City, eight guides to food culture in cities across America. Now, the museum will host a slate of programming at MOFAD Lab, its gallery space and design studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The six-part, chef-led series, called Global Cultures, American Cuisine, will highlight the global influences that have shaped American cuisine, and will explore themes of food culture, identity, immigration, and adaptation with cooking demos and tastings.

The series kicks off with Land of Fish and Rice with Fuchsia Dunlop, in which the renowned cookbook author and chef shares recipes from her new book, techniques, and common ingredients used in the Jiangnan region, south of the Yangtze River in China. Stay for her cookbook signing after the demo and try samples of Sichuan food from Cafe China. The event is on Monday, November 7 and tickets are $32; get them here.

Events at MOFAD Lab will run through March 2017, in conjunction of the launch of MOFAD's newest exhibition, Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant. The calendar includes MOFAD @ Night, a series of Friday night hangouts starting November 18. Guests can peruse the exhibition, guided by MOFAD staff, with fellow food obsessives and enjoy food, drinks, and entertainment by neighborhood vendors like Brooklyn Brewery. For more, head to
