Happy Chef Patty started making dumplings when she was eight years old, in her family's first restaurant "Four Seasons Dumpling House" in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Her father had worked in the palace kitchen for Madame Chiang Kai Shek, and her mother had grown up in a traditional Taiwanese household. Dumpling-making was in her blood.
When her family emigrated to the United States, she had just finished university in Taipei. As the first college educated member of her family, she was entrusted with opening a family business. Her first venture was the PuPu Hot Pot, which she named by combining PuPu Platters with Hot Pot. The press had a field day. "Great Food, Lousy Name" It became the subject of a coffee table book :Worlds Best Restaurant Names, by Ben Brusey.
She followed up her successful launch with the original Taiwan Cafe, Cambridge, All Asia Bar and Lounge and the The Windsor Inn Guest House. Finally, she came full circle to her roots, and launched the Dumpling Room, Cambridge; The Dumpling Room specialized in an extensive line of dumplings, along with large event catering and dumpling classes.
