Chefs Leo and Helen of Chinese Laundry
Get ready for an amazing multi course dinner from Chefs Helen and Leo from The Chinese Laundry!!
Run by married couple Helen Li and Leo Lamprides, Chinese Laundry is a catering company that specializes in a fusion of Chinese and Western dishes. Their menu re-interprets and redefines traditional recipes to create a unique culinary experience guaranteed to take customers on a colorful ride with only a bite.
In the couple’s own words:
"Most importantly, we want to pay homage to the vast and ancient culinary culture of China. We feel that it is so full of wonders, secrets, traditions and wisdom that it would be disrespectful to call our food authentic Chinese. So rather, we launder Chinese cuisine with the best of our evolving understanding."
Leo Lamprides is a Portuguese Greek American who was trained under chef David LeFevre when both were at the Water Grill, and was sous-chef for Michael Hung at Faith & Flower. Helen Li is an architect from Beijing who brings her home recipes to the business. The two combine and incorporate their backgrounds and experiences into their one-of-a-kind dishes, incorporating a pantheon of cuisines, from Hainan chicken to Uighur-style meat to Chinese risotto. The couple believe strongly in providing authentic dining experience by making almost everything from scratch, including tortillas, fermented chile sauce, stocks, and pickles.
