Growing up, what was your favorite food to eat and why?  

I liked Teri Beef, Fried Chicken, and Chow Fun from the neighborhood okazuya.  It's comfort food.

What is the best advice anyone ever gave you?

Chef Alan told me to cook what you grew up eating, so I cook a lot of local stuff like Roast Pork, Meatloaf, or Garlic Chicken.  I enjoy when people like what I made.


Stay in school and learn what you can.
