Happy Lunar New Year!
In this special episode, we’re joined by Steph from @luckydragonsupperclub. Steph’s a whiz in the kitchen, creating content that shows us just how easy it is to put on a spectacular food spread for friends and family.
We cook up all of our favourite Lunar New Year dishes at Steph’s house and reminisce on our own Lunar New Year experiences. You can check out the video version of this over at our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/@levelasianpod
We chat to Steph about her mixed upbringing and how she went from graduating with a music degree to diving into tech. Steph also gives us insight into the future of Lucky Dragon Supper Club and the exciting content that we can expect this year!
