Lucy Ho came to Tallahassee almost 50 years ago as a professor's wife and the city's first Chinese cooking teacher. Masa is her most modern venture in Asian fusion, from lettuce rolls, sashimi and tempura to pad Thai, curried duck breast and lamb chops. She just added uptown Azu, where fans can find her beloved buffets at Sunday brunch.
