Join us on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 back at the San Diego Natural History Museum for the 7th Annual Chew The Scene as we prepare to launch the 22nd San Diego Asian Film Festival!
In its largest iteration yet, the 5th Annual Chew The Scene gave exciting new culinary concepts a home under the umbrella of Asian American cuisine and challenged San Diego chefs to tell their own Asian American food stories with creative, off-menu dishes.
And for the first time ever, awards were presented to the restaurants who best exemplified the spirit of the festival—and its festival sections—and whose dishes best met the challenge of creating a hybrid, bastardized, or idiosyncratic off-menu dish emblematic of Asian American cuisine today.
The 4th Annual Chew The Scene celebrated the histories, stories, and memories behind the food prepared by participating restauranteurs, chefs, and food partners. Like the film festival it launches, the Chew The Scene 2017 aimed to showcase how food, like film, can tell and celebrate stories of Asian America.
Now housed in Brick SD, a new location for the 3rd Annual Chew The Scene, the event kicked off the San Diego Asian Film Festival, combining food and drink tastings while giving attendees first opportunity in San Diego to preview the film festival’s lineup of films and programs.
