CROSS x TALK is RADII’s live conversation series on Instagram. Hosted by editors and contributors, RADII speaks to creatives and thought leaders about the trends shaping their fields, and shares inspiring stories of creative resilience that bridge cultures.
Ask any urbanite their top three favorite cuisines, and chances are some variation of Chinese food will make their list. As Chinese immigrants dispersed across the world, the foods they brought with them have evolved, adapted, and become cuisines of their own.
More recently, not only have we seen more authentic mainland Chinese restaurants in cities around the world, but a wider array of them — better showcasing the diversity Chinese food has to offer.

In the globalized world we live in, Chinese food today looks like a mix of authentic, regional restaurants, inspired localized dishes, and all-new creative fusions from chefs and food entrepreneurs.
For our December 2020 CROSS x TALK event, LUCKYRICE founder Danielle Chang will be joining RADII live on Instagram to talk about what it means when Chinese food “goes global.”
