Liza Chu Sin-yee (朱倩儀) is a Hong Kong native who immigrated to Australia with her family when young and began working in her family’s Chinese restaurant from the tender age of 13. Since then she has been fascinated by restaurant management and innovative cuisine.

After finishing her B.A. (Japanese Hons., Mathematics, Computer Science) at Sydney University, she spent years living and sampling delicious cuisine in Japan and the United States. Subsequently, she returned to Hong Kong and now teaches Cantonese and local culture to newly arrived expats at the American Women’s Association. Her dim sum experiences with her charming students prompted the creation of her visual guidebook to local dining.
