This Saturday we're pleased to have Noel Yin of Shanghai as our guest chef. After graduating from the California Culinary Academy, Noel worked at Gary Danko, La Folie, and the Pan Pacific Hotel, and currently works at the JW Marriott, San Francisco. His specialty is creative simplicity at the intersection of East Asian and French cuisines.
Tonight, a substantial percentage of Noel's profits will be donated to the Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center, to support their vital health services and advocacy for API communities, particularly queer/transgender communities, and with a focus on HIV/AIDS response.
