Today’s guests are Margaret, Irene, and Andrew Li, the sibling co-owners of the The Mei Mei Group, a Boston-based restaurant, food truck, and catering company with a focus on innovation, sustainability, and great service. Led by Chef Irene, Mei Mei’s creative Chinese-American cuisine combines Chinese techniques and influences with local New England ingredients. Their food truck, Mei Mei Street Kitchen, opened in 2012 and was soon awarded Boston’s Best Meals on Wheels by Boston Magazine. Their brick-and-mortar restaurant opened in late 2013 and was named Eater Boston’s Restaurant of the Year. I’ve been a big fan of the restaurant and this family because of their dedication to sustainable operations, employee education, and ethical sourcing, they are truly leaders in New England local food scene. We’ll discuss their new cookbook, “Double Awesome Chinese Food” on the show.
