Eat a Peach - A Memoir
Author(s): David Chang
The celebrated chef behind Momofuku and star of Netflix's Ugly Delicious gets uncomfortably real in his debut memoir.
'Funny, wise, humble, and self-aware. With Eat a Peach, he puts words to so many of the things we all feel' Chrissy Teigen, New York Times bestselling author of Cravings
In 2004, Momofuku Noodle Bar opened in Manhattan's East Village.
Its young chef-owner, David Chang, served ramen and pork buns to a mix of fellow restaurant cooks and confused diners whose idea of ramen was instant noodles in Styrofoam cups. It would have been impossible to know that he would become one of the most influential chefs of his generation.
Eat a Peach chronicles Chang's journey, laying bare his mistakes and feelings of otherness and inadequacy. Along the way, Chang gives us a penetrating look at restaurant life, balancing his deep love for the kitchen with unflinching honesty about the industry's history of brutishness and its uncertain future.
