Cook the Book: Lee Anne Wong's Dumplings All Day Wong

If we were to curate our perfectly planned last meal, there would be no question that it would have to include a dim sum course.  Those little packages of doughy goodness filled with beautiful combinations of flavors are one of the best comfort foods you can imagine.

While working at The French Culinary Institute, Chef Holly had the great pleasure of having Chef Wong as a friend, colleague and mentor, and values her impact on the culinary world. Chef Wong honed her skills in the kitchens of Chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Jean Georges Vongerichten, and later returned to her alma mater as Executive Chef of Event Operations.  What some may consider a 'dream' job, Lee Anne worked weekly with the FCI deans (Soltner, Sailhac, Pepin, Torres), in addition to other mega chefs (from Batali to Colicchio) to create demo experiences for students. Wong was in the top 4 of Season 1 of Top Chef, and later became the Culinary Producer of the show, in addition to a frequent guest on Cooking Channel's Unique Eats, and winner of Iron Chef America Season 10, Episode 1 against Michelin-rated Chef Marc Forgione. She now has two of her own restaurants in Hawaii, Koko Head Cafe and Hale Ohuna.
