Museum hosts culinary weekend 

This weekend, the Asian Art Museum introduces Taste of Asia, a three-day event featuring art, entertainment and delicious dining.

Festivities begin at 7 p.m. Friday with a Grand Tasting Gala, in which guests will sample signature dishes from some two dozen leading local Asian restaurants — all among the museum’s world-class exhibitions, accompanied by live music and dancing. On Saturday and Sunday, one-hour seminars beginning at 10:30 a.m. are the order of the day. Topics include chocolate, tea, Indian spices and Chinese medicinal herbs. Big-time experts, including chef Martin Yan (who will speak on "art of the knife") and chef Ranjan Dey of New Delhi Restaurant, are among the presenters.

The event’s primary sponsor is Kikkoman International Inc., which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in San Francisco.

Tickets to Friday’s tasting gala are $125; workshops cost $50. The museum is at 200 Larkin St. For more information, call (415) 581-3788 or visit
