Join us on Wednesday, December 8th at 7:30pm when the Wharton Food Club welcomes the founder of beloved NYC restaurant chain Xi’an Famous Foods for a noodle cooking demonstration and fireside chat with CEO Jason Wang.

Food Club will be offering meal kits and a virtual cooking class with Jason to bring one of XFF’s most popular dishes - hand-ripped, hot oil seared biang biang noodles - to your kitchen! After the cooking class, he will host a fireside chat and Q&A to share more of his fascinating founder story (see a sneak peak below.)

How tickets work: Buy your tickets here for the fireside chat/cooking demonstration event by itself (one ticket per device, so feel free to bring a friend). After you sign up, we will then send around an order form to separately purchase a Xi’an Famous Foods meal kit, with a significant discount, so that you can cook along with Jason.

To purchase a MEAL KIT, we will email all registered participants to purchase a discounted group order of meal kits separately. Meal kit purchase option will be available for anyone who buys a ticket by Thursday 12/2.

A bit about Xi’an Famous Foods:
- Xi’an Famous Foods began as a 200 square foot basement “hole-in-the-wall” stall in the Golden Shopping Mall in Flushing, N.Y., the de-facto Chinatown of New York City. Chinese immigrant David Wang and his son opened it as the first restaurant to bring the then-lesser-known cuisine of Xi’an (of Shaanxi Province of China) to the United States.
- After attending Washington University in St. Louis and a brief stint in the corporate world, Jason decided to focus on his true passion and began to grow the family food business.
- Today, Xi’an Famous Foods has over ten fast casual restaurants in New York City, a cookbook, and a growing home meal kit service!
