This Side of Rice
Special One Pager by Jenny Zhang paying homage to the Chinese food she grew up with. The horizontal scrolling Singe Page site is filled with lovely illustrations and scattered text that reads like a traditional storybook. Thanks for the insight on the passion project Jenny!
“This Side of Rice” is a short illustration website I created to share with you why Chinese food is important to me. To celebrate my culture and the diversity in food today, I illustrated some of my favorite foods that I grew up with and captioned it with some memories. The website is a Single Page and scrolls horizontally. The illustrations are of Chinese dishes next to what are traditionally considered more normalized, “American” dishes on a long, scrolling table. Chinese food is often considered an exotic subset of cuisine, but many Chinese-Americans like me eat Chinese food everyday. If I’m American, why shouldn’t it be considered American, too?
