ABOUT THE CHEF
I was born into a family of chefs and food is my love language. Working with dough (in all forms) brings me joy and now I can share my family recipes and our craft with you.
I'm a professional chef who constantly travels the world in search of culture and cuisine. After visiting 70+ countries, studying Northern Italian cuisine in Milan, sous-cheffing in NYC for James Beard Foundation celebrity chefs, and returning to Hong Kong to learn from my Grandma (who is a renown local baker); I decided to plant roots on the Big Island of Hawaii. I built a house from scratch and my goal is to grow my own food, harvest from neighborhood farms and cook farm to table for my local community.
When I'm not harvesting my own food, I support small, local businesses and believe in paying farmers their worth. My prices reflect quality, consistency, sustainability, and fair-trade. I hope you love your dumpling experience!
