Eddie Huang & Sam Sifton

Thursday, January 31, 7:30 PM
Baohaus chef Eddie Huang discusses Fresh Off the Boat with New York Times editor Sam Sifton
Refreshments from Baohaus provided!

One of the food world’s brightest and most provocative young stars, Eddie Huang is the thirty-year-old proprietor of East Village hangout Baohaus, where people come to eat delicious Taiwanese street food late into the night. But before he created the perfect home for himself in New York, he wandered the American wilderness looking for a place to call his own. Fresh Off the Boat is Eddie’s brutally honest, reflective, and hilarious memoir of a youth spent defying every “model minority” stereotype and how he finally threw everything he loved—past and present, family and food—into his own restaurant. Eddie will discuss the book and his story with Sam Sifton, the national editor (and former restaurant critic) of The New York Times, who is also the food columnist for the Sunday Times Magazine and the author of Thanksgiving: How to Cook it Well. The discussion will be followed by complimentary nibbles from Baohaus!
