Eddie Huang, chef and co-owner of the East Village Taiwanese street food restaurant Baohaus, talks about pork buns and and the politics of food. He's the author of Fresh Off the Boat
Funny how both Mr. Lopate's guests -- Eddie Huang and Mark Russ Federman -- are lawyers turned restauranteurs. Who knew that law school was the new path to the kitchen???
Also, am loving hearing the ethnic phrases -- Eddie's Taiwanese? and Mark's Yiddish? Hebrew?
Really really enjoying listening to Eddie Huang. Please bring him back. He is the ideal guest: intelligent and real; erudite but down with the people. Thanks for having him on... and for your own Taiwanese knowledge Leonard. This show never disappoints. Much success to Mr. Huang and his BaoHaus.

Have you seen Oxfam America's ranking of social policies of food and beverage companies? From their website: "The social and environmental policies of the world’s ten biggest food and beverage giants are not fit for modern purpose and need a major shake-up. ... Behind the Brands – part of Oxfam’s GROW campaign to fix the broken food system – for the first time ranks the agricultural policies, public commitments and supply chain oversight of Associated British Foods (ABF), Coca Cola, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Mars, Mondelez, Nestlé, Pepsico and Unilever.
ABF (19%), Kellogg’s (23%) and General Mills (23%) scored most poorly. They have weaker policies than Coca-Cola (41%), Unilever (49%) and Nestle (54%)"
Hi Eddie- great segment, thank you! Any suggestions for a first time restaurant in Flushing Chinatown ?
I was under the impression that Bubble Tea was an Taiwanese concoction.
