Drunk in China 醉在中國

China created the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage in 7000 BCE and never looked back. Enjoyed for centuries and lauded by poets, baijiu is the world’s best selling liquor, yet still barely visible outside China. Derek Sandhaus, author of Drunk in China, explores this conundrum with Fuchsia Dunlop, award-winning author of many books about Chinese cuisine, including her latest, The Food of Sichuan. Author and founder of Beijing’s Black Sesame Kitchen, Jen Lin Liu, joins us live from her new restaurant in Beijing to lead a wide-ranging conversation about Chinese drinking and banqueting culture. In ENGLISH, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
