Kwan began his restaurant career at the age of 17 in Hong Kong after escaping (ask him to tell you that story!) the southern Chinese province of Guangdong. With the proverbial and literal “nothing but the clothes on his back,” he began his life’s work. “I chose to work in a restaurant because only the restaurants [in Hong Kong] provided cooks with a place to sleep,” Kwan said. With no formal education in cooking — and after being denied schooling after the third grade during the Cultural Revolution — Kwan had to pick up on the art of Cantonese cooking on his own. Dedicated, non-stop work allowed him to practice what he says eventually became a talent and not simply a job.
