My name is Cedric Yeh. This is a photo of me at the tender age of 1. Cute right? Me, not the pig. My folks had a Chinese restaurant and were celebrating Chinese New Year. For a long time it was just a baby picture. I liked it. Little did I know 40 years later I would be breaking it down for insight in to the stories of new immigrants, entrepreneurialism, and cultural exchange. Or that I would be working on exhibitions and collections about Chinese food in America. I still like the paper cocktail umbrellas.
