CHINATOWN — For some New Yorkers, Christmas isn't Christmas without Chinese food.
"Ever since the first lonely Jew ordered Chinese takeout on Christmas, there has been an undeniable bond between Jews and Chinese," said the event's creators Jeff Orlick and Veronica Chan on the Woks and Lox website.
Orlick is a food blogger who gives eating tours of Queens, and Chan works in tech startups.
At last year's event, the duo cooked dishes such as Daikon, Napa Cabbage and Cucumber Dill Pickles, as well as Matzo Ball and Rice Cake Soup with Ginger Shiitake Broth.
Woks and Lox's custom beer, made with matzo and Sichuan peppercorns, will also be served.
In addition to the food, the event also offers entertainment, combining a Chinese auction with "Bar Mitzvah-esque partying," according to the Woks and Lox website. Proceeds from the auction will help the hurricane-ravaged Philippines.
The dinner party starts at 10 p.m. on Dec. 28 at Nom Wah Tea Parlor, 13 Doyers St. Tickets are $68 and can be purchased online.
