Gerry learned how to eat from his parents, Henry and Mary Fong which as Gerry says is "the basis of how to be a great cook." They were successful restaurateurs for over 20 years in Eastern North Carolina, specifically Rockingham and Laurinburg. They taught him the importance of quality ingredients, remembering your heritage and opulence bringing him, at a young age, to many fine dining restaurants in New York City. As Gerry grew up he tried other occupations but always found himself back in the kitchen. After college in Wilmington, soul searching in the Philippines and working on a hog farm in Laurinburg, Gerry eventually followed his mother's advice and attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Here, the fundamentals his parents had instilled were honed and refined. He made contacts and long-lasting culinary friendships.  After graduation he traveled the United States discovering regional cuisines and working amazing jobs such as: The Ritz Carlton, Willoughby Brewing Company and Ashten's. Gerry's culinary roadmap has steered him here to New Bern. His new adventure -Persimmons is a gorgeous respite located on the Neuse River. He serves food that much reflects his life: playful, precise, tasty and of the highest quality. Gerry is also dedicated to supporting local farmers and fishermen and never forgets his Chinese/Carolinian roots marrying the two 'til food nirvana!
