About Lacy

Mountain Palace was conceived by Lacy Cai to provide people the opportunity to experience authentic food from her native northern China. She is also committed to exposing others to the joy of exquisite Chinese porcelain from Jingdezhen and detailed embroidery from Suzhou. Lacy Cai, M.D., Ph.D. provided medical treatment to children in China, got a Ph.D. in Japan in the science of genetic research, presented at the 2008 International Gene Therapy Conference in Boston, Ma, and works presently in diabetes research. Her dream is to provide this unique Mountain Palace establishment for the enjoyment of others.


About Clay

Mountain Palace developed from a concept to a reality by an incredible journey through bureaucratic licensure and permitting regulations as well as construction. Clay Shirey has been the SASMMWUDM throughout the process. With a former career in human services and degrees in psychology and special education and certifications in behavior analysis and multisystemic therapy, he is uniquely qualified to bring this venture to a successful outcome. Whatever next impossible task is required is his current mission.

About Yuzhen

Mountain Palace has had the good fortune to enjoy a visit by Lacy’s mother. Youzhen recently arrived from Chang Chun in Jilin Province, China. She is sharing a lifetime of experience in preparing her native northern Chinese dishes.
