Later, the best chefs would travel from all over China to Beijing in hopes of cooking for the emperor during the Ming Dynasty. Only the finest chefs were allowed into the palace kitchen, let alone allowed to cook for the emperor himself. Chef Nwaeze would definitely have made the cut back then with his Duck with Plum Sauce entrée.
