Meet Mya ” I started cooking at age 11 and grew up close to the source of food in my native Burma. Now, I’m a three-time DC restaurant executive chef who made a choice to strike out on her own to hustle as a progressive personal chef/ offbeat caterer. With 12 years of experience, my specialties range from modernizing a classic American dish to marrying flavors of the world’s cuisines into my own style of cooking. One of my signature creations, Kobe Burger with Peach Ketchup and Fried Pickle Chips, was called “first-rate” by The Washington Times and “killer burger” by The Washington Post. Several of my recipes took top places in contests in the past few months. The grand-prize-winning recipe, Five-Cheese Macaroni with Crispy Prosciutto Bits, will be published in Taste of Home Magazine’s October/ November issue.”
