Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Apr 18, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 16! Noodles and rice are two of the most ubiquitous food staples across Asian and Pacific Islander communities. The origin of noodles is debated, but we take a crack to explain a few of the different theories. We also discuss the spread of noodles across Asia and some notable dishes. Before talking about noodles, we begin with a few additional celebrations in the AAPI community. We close out this episode with a new segment called What Are We Eating, where we take a moment to share some great food items created by AAPI food companies. This week we talk about Nummy Nibbles and MingsBings. Not only are both delicious, but they also donate a percentage of the proceeds to non-profits!
