I was born in Guangzhou, the birthplace of dim sum, and raised in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia. As a sibling-less child, cooking was a way to keep myself entertained. That’s how my love for food started and it continues to grow.
Favorite foods: fried chicken, wonton noodle soup, kitsune udon, fresh tofu, perfectly grilled medium rare steak, mentaiko pasta, uni, west coast oysters, hot pot, cheetos, anything with mushrooms, pineapple ice cream
Last bite on earth: My family's version of Sunday brunch. A bowl of my mom's chicken congee with a plate of my dad's ginger scallion lo mein on the side.
