I learned cutting and chopping techniques by watching Yan Can Cook on the tv. I got a job at the sushi bar where my skill/techniques got honed. I do love working in a professional kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Asian foods are my favorite to cook and entertain with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am raised in Hawaii so all Asian foods are part of my family's culture.
My cooking triumphs
Pulling off a beautifully orchestrated dinner party.
My cooking tragedies
Not having enough food or running out of food or burning food. Also, being stuck cooking at the stove all night long and missing enjoying the party.
