Chef Yu Min Lin’s approach to cooking is inspired from his extensive training and experience in both Japanese and French cuisine for over 20 years abroad and here in California. The road was not always easy. “I spent 3 years just washing the rice and vegetables. Three years,” he told Ryan. “12 hours a day, six days a week.” He aims to source wild, sustainable,and seasonal ingredients from land and sea. The goal is to bring out the natural flavors of freshness and present the dishes in a simple and pure form. Taking fresh seasonal ingredients and transforming them into a culinary experience is Chef Lin’s approach to introducing guests to his cuisine.
