Born in Guangzhou, China, Chef Yan always possesses a passion for cooking. While pursuing an MS in Food Science, he taught Chinese cooking for the university extension program.

The format expanded to include distinct styles of Asian cooking, with Chef Yan traveling to culinary hot spots to introduce viewers to local food and customs. A popular guest-instructor, Yan also taught at the California Culinary Academy, Johnson & Wales University, The Chinese Cuisine Institute in Hong Kong, The Culinary Institute of America, the University of San Francisco and chef training programs across North America. In 1985, he founded the Yan Can International Cooking School. His Yan Can and SensAsian Restaurants offer inventive pan-Asian menus and give competitors a run for their woks.

Chef Yan has been nominated for many prestigious awards including the James Beard Award. He has captured the attention, admiration and hearts of millions of cooking fans by spicing his cooking artistry and teaching with a personal ingredient: wit. Via television or in person, a cooking session with Chef Yan proves invigorating as well as educational.
