ABOUT CHEF BAO BAO:
Suchanan Aksornnan, also known as Chef Bao Bao, was raised in Chiang Rai, the northernmost province in Thailand. When she was 15, Bao Bao and her mother moved to New York to cook together. She was then formally trained at the International Culinary Center and L’ecole in NYC. She continued her career at upscale restaurants and working as a personal chef for many celebrities and royalty, including the Prince of Saudi Arabia, Cameron Diaz, Janet Jackson, Lucy Liu and Marc Jacobs. In 2013, Chef Bao Bao opened her fusion restaurant, Baoburg. Since its opening, she has received immense praise: Zagat’s “30 under 30” culinary rising stars in NYC, competing on both the Esquire Network TV Show “Knife Fight” and Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay”, and Thrillist’s “11 Most Badass Female Chefs in New York”.
ABOUT TIAN ZHU:
To food show host, Tian Zhu, food has always been special. She believes that food provides an undeniable and lasting connection to one’s life. A good dish is a culmination of experiences. Its ingredients are origin, life experience, perspective, memories, and emotions. People can express themselves and speak to others through food. Tian continues to learn about herself and others through creating and tasting food. As a proud Chinese and Wuhanese, Tian feels lucky to be working and promoting Asian food culture.
ABOUT TWIN MARQUIS:
From a small factory in New York’s Chinatown to a state-of-the-art 80,000 square-foot facility in Brooklyn, Twin Marquis has made major strides during its first 30 years. Never losing sight of quality and always chasing the highest standards, they soon became the “noodle experts”.

They are also food lovers, and are strong advocates of those that pursue the art of good eating.
