Susan Jung and Ken Hom
Join author and Food Editor for Vogue Hong Kong Susan Jung, in conversation with author and presenter Ken Hom, to celebrate the publication of her new book Kung Pao & Beyond: Fried Chicken Recipes from East and Southeast Asia.
Susan Jung has travelled all over the world and has tried and tested every fried chicken recipe you could ever wish for. In Kung Pao & Beyond, she has selected her favourite fried chicken recipes from across East and Southeast Asia.
Susan’s love for fried chicken has never ceased. As a child, she marvelled at the deeply flavoured and fantastically crunchy drumsticks her uncle would cook at family gatherings. As a student, she revelled in her midnight snack of cold fried chicken while studying for exams, and during her near 25-yeartenure as the food and wine editor for the South China Morning Post, her fried chicken recipes were in constant demand. Through years of exploration Susan has discovered the huge range of possibilities for this beloved dish.
In conversation for this crackling virtual event, Susan and Ken will discuss the incredible range of recipes, from popular dishes like restaurant favourite Chicken with Black Bean Sauce and comforting Chinese-American Deli Fried Chicken, to exploring new flavours in a plate of piping hot Japanese Chicken Karaage and freshly fragrant Thai-Flavoured Chicken with Lemongrass & Mint. Susan will explore what it takes to elevate this humble fast food to a whole new level, as well as the incredible recipes to inspire all home cooks and fried chicken lovers. Make sure you tune in for this moreish event!
