Today’s Blue Plate Special? The Chinese New Year banquet thrown by Gen and Mary Lee, and of course celebrity chef Peter Chang. The Hubby and I were honored to be invited to this event at Peter Chang’s China Grill. Sunday, January 15th.

Yep, Peter Chang was in the kitchen. I saw him with my own eyes. Even shook the man’s hand in gratitude afterward with the numbing effects of those tasty peppers still working their magic on my lips. He was all smiles, as were our hosts, Gen and Mary Lee. Telling everyone how grateful they felt for the warm welcome they’d received this past year. Trust me, the feeling is MUTUAL.
