As Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month comes to an end, Leland Eating and Drinking House held a celebration with different chefs from across the city. 
The chefs came together at Leland to share their own traditional Asian and Pacific Islander meals and commemorate the month dedicated to their culture.
