We had a wonderful Awards Reception on April 25, 2016 with catering from Long Beach’s Elephant Thai Kitchen and cupcakes from the pastry kitchen of Teri Yamada and her son Yuzo, shortly off to Perpignan, France to study under Chef Olivier Bajard.  Over 130 students, parents, faculty, guests and friends of AAAS attended the event in the Anatol Center.


A highlight of the evening’s program was graduate student and master musician Liang-yu Zhang-Moran (left) and her student Rose (right), who performed on classical Chinese instruments, including the moon lute, flute, and zither.
