Chef Wan’s mother first introduced him to baking and cooking eggs, but it was his father that truly inspired him to become a chef. His father showed him different cooking styles and ingredients. Every night, his father would cook dinner for the family and Steve loved watching and learning. It was then that he realized the importance that food has on cultures around the world and how it brings people together.
