As we dig in, we might send birthday greetings in oyster sauce to Joyce Chen; she was born on this date in 1917. A chef, restauranteur, author, television personality, and entrepreneur, she parlayed a successful Cambridge, MA restaurant (where she’s credited with creating the “all you can eat Chinese buffet” to perk up slow Tuesdays and Wednesdays) into a collection of restaurants, a cooking school, a series of cookbooks, and a PBS series (shot on the same set as Julia Child’s show). She is credited with popularizing northern-style Chinese cuisine in America. Chen was honored in 2014 (along with Julia Child) as one of the five chefs featured on a series of U.S. postage stamps.
