After hosting a two month national search for the Pei Wei blogger, we have selected Alice Shin to accompany our chefs on an 18-day trip throughout the five Asian cultures (China, Japan, Korea, Thailand & Vietnam) that make up our menu. Our chefs will be searching for culinary inspiration for new dishes at Pei Wei as well as looking to re-visit some of the classic traditional flavors from each country. Alice will be tagging along to share all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the trip with you. Take a look at the Chefs accompanying Alice on her journey, the other four finalists and the trip itinerary, and when you are ready, click over to the Pei Wei Blog to read their adventure.
