Chef Martin Yan at Wegman's Veggie Fest

Today Chef Martin Yan was at Pittsford Wegmans for Veggie Fest. I was looking forward to seeing him. When I was a kid I used to watch Yan Can Cook on PBS with my Grandma.

Before Yan signed cookbooks, he demonstrated cooking different kinds of veggies. He has crazy knife skills. He can slice a mushroom to feed 25 people.

"Cut. Cut. Cut. Cut. Cut. Cut. See how cute? You can cut mushroom any way you like! It's a free country!"

He is so funny! And super nice.


  1. I love him - used to watch him as a kid, too. "Set it aside!" He sets everything aside, even if he's about to put it in the pan.

  2. I loved him! I always thought it was so funny when he would cut something and say "Look at dis!" :)

  3. My favorite is when he smashes garlic into paste with one whack! Oh PBS cooking shows, you ARE my childhood.

  4. I loved his show! His pun-ny aprons were the best.
