About Chinese Laundry Kitchen

Who We Are

Chinese Laundry Kitchen was founded by designer Yanza and her chef husband Leo Lamprides. Yanza is a first generation immigrant from China, while Leo grew up in Southern California. Since the beginning of their relationship, the couple bonded over exchanging cultural and culinary knowledge and skills in the kitchen. Chinese Laundry was born out of the desire to preserve Yanza’s family recipes while sharing their love for the rich Chinese culinary traditions.
