Changing the Perception of Chinese Food
A few years ago, I was talking to someone at my son's school who heard I was a chef. She was very interested in what I did, and after many questions, she asked what kind of food I cooked. I replied, "Chinese food", and she responded with a dejected, "ohhh?!"
She had this mental image of a greasy cook flipping a wok behind bullet-proof glass. I knew I had to change the perception of Chinese food. Around the world, it is revered as one of the finest cuisines, but here in New York City...it's cheap takeout.
I take the best ingredients I can source, combine modern cooking styles with traditional Chinese techniques to update classic Chinese recipes. It all comes together in really delicious food, everything artisanal and made from scratch every day.
