In honor of The Sleeping Giant: Posters & The Chinese Economy, Poster House has teamed up with many Chinese organizations and businesses in NYC to celebrate the rich and diverse culture of China.

Tonight, join us for a virtual cooking class with Nom Wah, one of New York City’s oldest dim sum houses. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, Nom Wah has served authentic Chinese dishes to locals and tourists alike since 1920, becoming one of the most famous restaurants in Chinatown. In this one-night-only class, Nom Wah’s Head Chef will give you tips and tricks to craft iconic Chinese cuisine at home. By the end of the event you’ll have dinner for the whole family!

Our evening’s menu will include crafting Nom Wah’s Sausage Fried Rice, Greens with Oyster Sauce, and Pork & Shrimp Wontons. A complete ingredient list is noted a the bottom of this page.

The impact of COVID-19 on New York’s Chinatown has been devastating. While you learn your new skills and prepare your family a delicious dinner, help Poster House support this Chinatown institution with a donation to support the staff at Nom Wah during NY on Pause. To donate to them directly via Venmo, you can find them at @nomwahnolita, or see the Donation section on our Eventbrite registration page.
