Fly By Jing is a celebration of the vibrant street food culture of Sichuan. Inspired by the bustling "fly restaurants" of Chengdu, old school eateries that are so good they're said to attract diners like flies, my aim is to share flavors and experiences that capture this spirit.
I was born in Chengdu and lived there until age five, when my family began migrating across the globe from country to country, eventually settling in Canada. We may have left my hometown, but my taste buds never did. Every visit back was a chance to sit at my grandparents' kitchen table, revisiting the epic street snacks of my childhood, learning techniques and traditions passed down for generations, and most importantly, reconnecting with my family through our common language of food.
As I grew up and my passion for cooking became a profession, I found myself returning to my roots, inspired by the culinary complexity, ever-evolving spirit, and often underappreciated status of Sichuan food. Determined to share my love for this incredible food culture, I began cooking at markets and pop ups, crafting a line of artisanal Sichuan sauces and condiments, and launching a Supper Club bringing people together around my dinner table.
Mine is a new take and slow approach to classic Sichuan soul food, aiming to preserve a piece of culinary history and reviving it through a line of handmade food products and dining experiences in Shanghai and around the world. Fly By Jing provides a modern insight into Sichuan food culture, bringing it to life through simple and beautiful shared experiences.
