The Lunar New Year Tailgate Challenge with Chef Brandon Jew

Chef Brandon Jew participates in a Lunar New Year tailgate challenge, representing wealth and prosperity with his signature fried chicken recipe. The recipe, inspired by the historic Four C's restaurant, uses a technique of blanching the chicken to open up the pores of the skin and then marinating it with maltos, red vinegar, and lemon juice. The chicken is then dried for two days before frying. Chef Jew also discusses the changing culinary scene in San Francisco's Chinatown and the community's efforts to support each other during the rough period of COVID-19. He talks about the significance of the building his restaurant is located in and the importance of preserving and embracing the neighborhood's history.
