"Ancient" Chinese Secret? 

Nourish a child with a degree in philosophy and an insatiable hunger for MSG and trans fats, and what do you get? In the case of Riverfront Times staff writer Malcolm Gay, you get a gustatory warrior who's not afraid to juxtapose the evolution of Western thought with the bastardization of Chinese food in America. A dubious premise, you say? Well, this is chop suey we're talking about. It's open to interpretation. Join Malcolm today at 229 J.C. Penney Conference Center on the campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road) as he discusses his recent investigative report "St. Louie Chop Suey: The Story of a Culture, Told Through Its Cuisine." Like a golden-fried egg roll or a perfectly crafted wonton, the conversation is sure to leave you satisfied — at least for an hour. Good thing for Malcolm, the event lasts from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. For more information call 314-516-5699 or e-mail Karen Lucas at Admission is free.
