Our Chichi Wang is the guest chef for this year's Woks and Lox, a Jewish-Asian Christmas dinner party tonight, where she's making dishes like Sichuan peppercorn-spiked latkes and wonton pierogies. Earlier today she joined Live from the Couch on CBS to show off what goes into those fried wontons: potatoes, cheese, and a bit of mapo tofu seasoning.
