On Monday, March 25, more than 300 supporters and foodies gathered at the MFA for Joslin Diabetes Center’s 15th annual A Taste of Ginger event. Guests enjoyed a cook-off between Pagu’s Tracy Chang and The Smoke Shop BBQ’s Andy Husbands as well as cultural performances. More than 30 of Boston’s top chefs prepared special dishes for the night, including Tiffani Faison of Tiger Mama, Jimmy Liang of Fuji at Ink Block, Tim Maslow of Whaling in Oklahoma, and Wesley Chen of Changsho. Emceed by NBC 10 Boston and NECN anchor and reporter Joy Lim Nakrin, the event raised more than $225,000 to benefit Joslin’s Asian American Diabetes Initiative, which works to enhance the quality of life and health outcomes for the rising number of Asian Americans living with diabetes.
