About M.Y. China

M.Y. China offers authentic Chinese cuisine in a playfully modern experience. Inspired by Chef Martin Yan and his years of teaching the art of Chinese cuisine to everyday people, a full exhibition kitchen brings the ancient arts of the wok, hand-pulled noodles and dim sum to light. With over 3,500 cooking shows broadcast worldwide, Martin Yan enjoys distinction as a certified Master Chef, highly respected food consultant, cooking instructor and prolific author. His now legendary cooking show “Yan Can Cook” on PBS, taught Americans and the rest of the world to cook Chinese food. Since then, his diverse talents have found expression in 30 cookbooks, a restaurant and culinary arts academy in Beijing, China and public appearances. With over 40 years in the food industry, he continues to educate us about the tradition and culture of Chinese cooking. More information is available at and you can find us on Facebook and Twitter.
