Chef Eddie Huang: Fresh Off the Boat to Baohaus

Email a Friend

Eddie Huang, chef and co-owner of the East Village Taiwanese street food restaurant Baohaus, talks about his misadventures as an unlikely lawyer, street fashion renegade, and stand-up comic before he focused on his love of food and opened his own restaurant. His memoir Fresh Off the Boat is about growing up in suburban Orlando, raised by a wild family from Taiwan, what he learned about cooking from his parents, and his wandering path to his own kitchen.
