Eddie Huang

      Eddie Huang was born in the American South to FOB ("fresh off the boat") Taiwanese parents. While his father improbably launched a chain of steakhouses, Eddie burned his way through American culture, defying every "model minority" stereotype along the way. After misadventures as an unlikely lawyer, street fashion designer, and stand-up comic, Eddie finally threw everything he loved - his past, his present, his family, and food - into his own restaurant, BaoHaus, the superhot East Village hangout that has made him into one of this generation's biggest food stars. Eddie joined us today to share stories from his memoir Fresh Off the Boat and to show us one of his signature dishes Char Siu Bao.
