Meet the Chef
My dad, Chung Sun Lau, has been cooking Chinese food for over 50 years - as a teenager fending for himself in Guangzhou, as the head chef of his own restaurant, and as a loving father in our home.
Now that he's retired, I've made it my mission to share with you (and our kids) the hundreds of recipes and life stories stowed away in his head.
