Jonathan Wheeler, teacher at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM), presents an introduction to traditional Chinese medicine and the five elements of wood, earth, metal, fire and water. By understanding your body type, you can identify your strongest element. Listen to a talk on these practices and find your element composition with one of the consultants.

Special guest Mariko Grady of Aedan Fermented returns to Tasting Menu. She'll offer four samples that represent spring, summer, fall and winter. With the help of a few ACTCM consultants, you'll discover your ruling season and element. Then, try a tasty treat suited for your season!

The Asian Art Museum’s Tasting Menu series is made possible with lead support from Kaiser Permanente. Thursday Nights are supported by Nordstrom. Additional support is provided by The Hearst Foundations, Dodge & Cox, and The Joseph & Mercedes McMicking Foundation.
