"When we started Mission Chinese, I had never been to China, I had never cooked Chinese food. [Chinese food] is so awesome because there's so many types of Chinese food, and they did a lot of things first. A lot can be traced back to Chinese cooking."

"Growing up, we weren't the most well-off family, so we always ate at home. My mom cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I just so was fascinated and would stay in the kitchen and with my mom. And I think that's what inspired and bringing people together."
