26-year-old Amelie Kang is a co-founder of the MáLà Project in NYC, a Sichuan-style restaurant that’s introducing dry hot pot to the U.S.
An alumna of the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, Chef Kang shared with us one of her favorite dishes, zhajiang noodles.
It’s a classic northern Chinese dish that her grandmother used to make, and is known for its rich minced pork and fermented soybean paste flavors.
