Po-Po’s is a catering business based in Brooklyn, New York, providing whole and delicious feel-good foods for special events, parties, and more. 

Los Angeles-native Diane Chang was inspired by her grandmother, Po-Po or 婆婆, a tiny but mighty Sichuanese matriarch who taught Diane how to nourish herself with healthy, delicious cooking. Naturally, food connected them. It became the language that defied their generational and cultural gaps. There was nothing that said “I love you” more than a bowl of Po-Po’s red bean soup. 

When Po-Po passed away in 2015, Diane sought comfort in the kitchen. She transitioned from food writer to cook. Today, Diane continues her culinary practice by incorporating Po-Po’s food philosophies and traditions into new edible creations––keeping Po-Po’s spirit alive one delicious dish at a time.
