Originally from San Francisco, California, Chef Alvin Yu has spent a large portion of his life in the kitchen. At an early age, he found himself assisting in the kitchens of his father’s Cantonese banquet-style restaurants. These experiences inspired Chef Yu to pursue learning everything there was to know about the culinary arts. In 2005, he started Fyusion Dining (www.fyusiondining.com). Chef Yu eventually developed a vision of dining that culminates in a feast for the senses – exquisite décor, expertly prepared cuisine, and a passion for encouraging patrons to explore the limitless diversity of the culinary world. Chef Yu is a premier member of the United States Personal Chef Association.
