Lunch lesson: Getting schooled on noodles by two U of T profs in Chinatown

TORONTO LIFE

Two U of T profs, Ruoyun Bai, associate professor of media studies at U of T, and her husband, Li Chen, an associate professor of history and global Asia studies at U of T, are invited by Toronto Life to lunch to walk writers through the spices, seasonings and subtle geographic influences of Anne's Magic Kitchen in Chinatown. The restaurant serves food with Northern Chinese with Szechuan influences. The two U of T profs not only teach about China, but they have also lived in the regions that influence Anne's cuisine.
