Chef Instructor: Mao Yang
Mao is Hmong- American and grew up in Wisconsin where her family had a farmer’s market business. Since her parent’s didn’t speak much English, Mao translated for her parents at the farmer’s market on how to cook and use specific ingredients as a child. Her past experience was in sales but decided to pursue her passion in the culinary arts later in life. She graduated from Midwest Culinary Institute and has about 18 years of restaurant experience. Since then, she is currently a private chef and expanding her private chef services. Her biggest culinary passion is to try new foods and teach others about ingredients that are uncommon to the American household. When not cooking and teaching, she spends her time hiking with her two dogs, reading, and traveling.
