After a successful career working as a creative in fashion marketing and advertising for 10+ years, British Born Chinese Chef Jojo decided to pursue her passion for cooking more seriously and retrain as a professional chef at Leith's School of Food and Wine. She is passionate about showcasing traditional Cantonese cooking and changing perceptions of how many people regard Chinese food as a greasy Saturday night takeaway. Her love for fresh, clean flavours combined with authentic Chinese cooking techniques creates dishes that are both comforting and moreish, ideal for sharing in a family-style dining experience. With her family originating from Hong Kong, Jojo learnt to cook with her parents from a young age and has fond childhood memories of her family kitchen smelling of fragrant, savoury broths bubbling on the stove for hours and weekends spent making dozens of dumplings with her late father. Aside from her particular love for Chinese cookery, she loves to experiment and cook all cuisines from Japanese and Korean to classic French, and baked her way through the Covid-19 pandemic. Her previous career in art direction continues to heavily influence her new profession, with an eye for beautiful and modern presentation and an ambition to inspire others to get creative and reflect their own unique personalities through cooking.
