Chen says China Live’s mission is to demystify Chinese food and culture and make it more accessible. It will include two restaurants, a cafe and an emporium selling organic ingredients and authentic Chinese cookware. At practically every turn, Chen says visitors will learn about where the food comes from and how it’s prepared.
“The more you know, the better they’ll understand the products and the fear will go away,” Chen said. “And I think the larger community will be happy about what we’re doing.”
