Welcome to Leiti's World of Mouth - a brand new show on HeritageRadioNetwork.org hosted by Leiti Hsu - fixture in NYC dining culture. On the inaugural episode, Leiti introduces herself to listeners and is joined by friend and star chef Paul Liebrandt, chef at the just-opened "The Elm" in Williamsburg. They discuss everything from the importance of Chinese food globally to the omnipresence of rice in cuisines around the world. Thanks to our sponsor, Hearst Ranch.

"Chinese food is one of those cuisines that translates anywhere in the world. You go anywhere on the planet and there's a Chinese restaurant." [10:00]
