— Chinese-inspired cuisine will be offered at a reception Thursday at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History in conjunction with the exhibition “Chinasaurs: Dinosaur Discoveries From China.”

The reception is for adults 21 and older. The tasting event from 6 to 8:30 p.m. will feature international beers and such Chinese-inspired appetizers as scallion pancakes, noodle entrees with spicy peanut sauce and custard tart desserts.

Tickets are $25 for museum members and $35 for nonmembers. Preregistration is required. To reserve tickets, call 325-1008.

The Chinasaur exhibit is the creation of dinosaur explorer Don “Dino” Lessem, author of more than 50 books on dinosaurs for children and adults. Lessem also is dinosaur columnist for Highlights Magazine for Children.

Lessem has been exploring and researching Chinese dinosaurs since 1988 and personally arranged the loan of the exhibit from Chinese paleontologists.

A dozen replicas of rare Chinese dinosaurs are featured in the exhibition. Complementing the dinosaurs are fossil dinosaur eggs and nests and numerous bones of the Jurassic plant-eating Lufengosaurus and the Cretaceous plant-eating Psittacosaurus.
