QUEENSBURY, New York—SUNY Adirondack is proud to announce its annual Celebrity Chef Series, featuring a presentation by Chef Jet Tila via Zoom at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 4.

Tila is a popular TV personality known for his modern take on Asian cuisine. He has appeared on several culinary shows, including “Iron Chef America,” “Chopped,” “Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations” and “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.”

He will demonstrate how to make Asian pork lettuce wraps. Those who wish to participate can pick up a demonstration kit from the Dining Hall before 6 p.m. the day of the event.

Tila visited SUNY Adirondack’s campus last year, during which he offered a food sampling and copies of his cookbook, “1010 Asian Dishes You Need to Cook Before You Die,” were available.

A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and California Sushi Academy, Tila first earned a name for himself by offering backyard cooking classes. He has since written for the Los Angeles Times and been a contributor to National Public Radio and the Food Network. 

He has opened several restaurants, experimented with food experiences and holds three world records: creating the world’s largest stir-fry (4,010 pounds), the largest seafood stew (6,656 pounds) and the largest California roll (422 feet).
