PhoenixBites Interview With Lina Yu

PhoenixBites: Of all your favorite meals, what one dish would you like to learn to master?


Lina Yu: I would love to learn how to make a yummy lobster bisque! It’s the fanciest soup I’ve ever had and so delicious. However, the thought of getting an actual lobster in my soup seems a bit tough and I wouldn’t know how to go about it!

PhoenixBites: Is there a person (chef, home cook, family member, etc.) that has inspired you to sharpen your culinary abilities?


Lina Yu: My old co-worker and the person who nominated me, Gwendolyn Lau, has inspired me to become a better cook! She is always so enthusiastic about food and super excited to cook new dishes. She always likes a good food challenge and it’s great to see how her cooking has brought together family and friends.

PhoenixBites: Any advice you can give to our readers who may be beginners in the kitchen?

Lina Yu: Patience and a positive attitude are key. Nothing is perfect the first time around which is where I feel like a lot of people get discouraged. It’s always about trial and error and you can only improve from there.



Set your DVRs! “Worst Cooks in America” airs on Sunday evenings at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network.
