Jimmy was born in Taichung County, located in the central region of Taiwan. In Taichung, there is a great emphasis within community and family towards pursuing a healthy lifestyle. For many generations, Jimmy’s family has been growing organic crops for their own consumption on the fertile lands around their home.
Growing up, Jimmy tasted all sorts of delicious traditional Taiwanese desserts made by his granny and his mum using their very own homegrown organic vegetables and natural ingredients. During this time, Jimmy learned the secrets and techniques of cooking many wonderful desserts by helping out in the kitchen.
