Chef Brenda Zukel is the creative mind behind The Banana Leaf. She has been cooking for most of her life; her earliest memories are standing in the kitchen watching her parents cook, learning the foods, culture, and traditions of the Hmong people. The family would sit and eat together creating a sense of unity, family, and identity. Her earliest memories fostered a passion for cooking and a desire for sharing that passion with others.
