Eat A Peach

David Chang




Korean American chef and the star of Netflix's Ugly Delicious, Chang dishes out an outrageously entertaining memoir about his improbable ascent to culinary fame. He started out angry, depressed, and given to manic episodes and suicidal thoughts, and initially, he admits, not such a great cook. But he nonetheless managed to tap, as he puts it, “a reserve of sheer, stubborn willpower to make up for what I lacked in talent.” Armed with that wild ambition and a bad-boy persona — he's often described as a “rebel chef” — Chang opened his first noodle shop in New York City's East Village. His mission: to make casual Asian cuisine as popular in America as french fries.
