"Peanut butter-chocolate sesame balls at @fungtu in #Manhattan. Jonathan Wu, @fungtu's chef, is one of a few dozen Chinese-American chefs who has independently arrived at the same goal: to invent a kind of Chinese-American food that is modern, creative and delicious, rather than sweet, sticky and bland. Most of these chefs have never been to China and have no Chinese culinary training, but they're learning as they go, feeling their way into one of the world's most complex, ancient and demanding culinary traditions. Their goal: to find "essentiality" — or to make fine, fresh ingredients taste like themselves. @francescosapienza photographed dishes at @fungtu while on #nytassignment.
