The celebrated host of over 2,000 cooking shows broadcast world-wide, Martin Yan enjoys distinction as a certified Master Chef, a highly respected food consultant, a cooking instructor and a prolific author. His diverse talents have found expression in 26 cookbooks, including the award winning Martin Yan’s Feast, Martin Yan’s Asian Favorites, Chinese Cooking for Dummies, Martin Yan’s Chinatown Cooking (intro by Julia Child) and his latest, Martin Yan’s Quick & Easy.

Born in Guangzhou, China, to a restaurateur father and a mother who operated a grocery store, Chef Yan possessed a passion for cooking at an early age. His formal induction into the culinary world began at thirteen, with an apprenticeship at a popular Hong Kong restaurant. He refined his natural talent at the Overseas Institute of Cookery in Hong Kong, then pursued an MS in Food Science at The University of California/Davis in the US. As an instructor in the university’s extension program, he discovered a flair for teaching. In 1978, he pioneered a daily Chinese cooking show: the now classic “Yan Can Cook.” Infusing lessons with his characteristic warmth, humor and vitality, he quickly won a devoted following. The format expanded into a cooking show/travelogue, featuring culinary hot spots throughout Asia.
