Lany held a series of jobs in Florida and New York and then traveled in Southeast Asia for almost one year to reconnect with her roots and to fully explore her love for food. During her travels, Lany spent extended periods studying with indigenous chefs to fully immerse herself in the diverse flavors and techniques of the region.
