Eddie Huang is a chef, writer, TV host, fashion designer, speaker, and producer based in New York City and Los Angeles whose work is recognized for bridging food with music, culture, comedy, politics and metropolitan life. He is widely known as the chef and owner of the popular Taiwanese restaurant Baohaus in New York City’s East Village. As a creator, Eddie has produced several projects under the moniker “Fresh Off the Boat”. It became the title of his ingenious travelogue series with VICE Media, a “genre bending venture of subcultures through the lens of food”. He is currently hosting and executive producing the series’ upcoming third season called “Huang’s World”. In 2013, Eddie also adopted the “Fresh Off the Boat” name for his first book and memoir, a New York Times Bestseller in its first week of release. 20th Century Fox optioned the memoir and brought Eddie on board to produce a sitcom of the same name, which has been the #1 ABC mid-season sitcom in America for 2015. The show, also in its third season, is the first Asian-American-family centric sitcom in nearly 20 years and the first of its kind featuring a Chinese or Taiwanese family. Eddie has also hosted Cooking Channel’s "Cheap Bites" and MTV’s cooking competition show Snack-Off while appearing on Fox Sports 1’s "Crowd Goes Wild", Cooking Channel’s "Unique Eats", and Anthony Bourdain’s "The Layover", and the final episode of Travel Channel’s "No Reservations". His podcast "Monosodium Glutamate with Eddie Huang" garnered thousands of listeners weekly. Eddie is an editor-at-large for VICE and MUNCHIES and has written articles and columns for The New York Times, ESPN The Magazine, New York Magazine, The New York Observer and more. As a designer for various clothing lines, Eddie was selected by Complex Magazine as one of its designers to watch. Eddie travels the globe speaking to Fortune 500 companies like Converse and Google, non-profits like TED, publications like The Atlantic and The New York Times, and universities like UPenn and Northwestern.
