Get Fresh Off the Boat

Chef Eddie Huang of VICE food travelogue “Fresh Off the Boat” talks about his new memoir of the same name with Hot 97 deejay, Miss Info. Fresh Off the Boat is a true foodie’s journey, taking readers from theme-park America to Baohaus, the East Village Taiwanese street food joint Huang owns. Considered a controversial figure by the food blogerati, Huang is best known for trash-talking celebrity chefs, stringing rap bars into his prose, and formerly hosting the Cooking Channel’s Cheap Bites. Huang grew up in the hip hop, b-ball-playing gustatory backstreets of Orlando and Taiwan. In his memoir, Huang breaks down how his love for intricate, complex tastes became a rite of passage to forge what it means to be American. The New York Times writes “…Fresh Off the Boat is a surprisingly sophisticated memoir about race and assimilation in America. It’s an angry book, as much James Baldwin and Jay-Z as Amy Tan.”

Hip hop radio personality and journalist, Miss Info, will steer the conversation in an informal Q&A with the chef, blogger, and video star.
