executive chef

Vincent Lai

My name is Vincent Lai and I’m an Executive Chef.

I live in Santa Clara, CA.

Eating is by far the best thing about being a chef.

The most important tip I can share as a chef is to always use fresh ingredients.

Angel hair is my favorite pasta shape.

If I could only have one dessert for the rest of my life, I’d choose fresh fruits and berries because they’re always fresh and not processed.

Chocolate will always be my guilty pleasure.

If I had to choose a favorite ingredient, I’d say fresh vegetables.

I couldn’t live without my kitchen tools.

When I’m not cooking, I tend to play sports.

The highlight of my career has got to be when I personally served POTUS and Secretary of State.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a policeman.

The first food memory I have has got to be something with Har Gow, a traditional Cantonese dumpling served in dim sum.
