    Even though this event is not Hong Kong nor Southern China related, I am a long time Member of Museum Of Chinese In America (formerly Museum Of Chinese In The Americas), and it will be nice to meet some of the Members of The New York Hong Kong/Cantonese MeetUp Group.

      Yes, the immigration of Chinese, from Guangzhou, to the United States, is a major portion of the History of Chinese in America. However, the Chinese component of this program is specifically related tfood, from o Xi`an, Shanxi, which is in Central, North China.

      The program is about food. Is there any food, no matter from north south, east or west that Cantonese are not interested in? I hope the program is more than that, that it is also about running a successful ethnic food business, lessons that can be shared with other Americans, especially Chinese Americans.

    Besides Little Italy being adjacent to Chinatown, Marco Polo was one connection between Italy and China in past history. Coincidentally, mass migration of Han people from the north to Guangdong province occurred began in the late 1200s, around the same time as Marco Polo's travel in China
