"The chef behind Momofuku and star of Netflix's Ugly Delicious gets uncomfortably real in his debut memoir"-- Provided by publisher.
"In 2004, Momofuku Noodle Bar opened in a tiny space in Manhattan's East Village. Chang, the chef-owner, worked the line, serving ramen and pork buns to a mix of fellow restaurant cooks and confused diners whose idea of ramen was instant noodles in Styrofoam cups. He was about to become one of the most influential chefs of his generation, driven by the question, "What if the underground could become the mainstream?" Here he recounts the improbable series of events that led him to the top of his profession. He wrestles with his lifelong feelings of otherness and inadequacy, explores the mental illness that almost killed him, and finds hope in the shared value of deliciousness"-- Adapted from jacket.

I admit it, I love chef memoirs, and I really enjoyed this one by David Chang. His story of his struggles with his Korean heritage, his parents and finding a decent job was told with humility. He is so honest with his discussion about his battle with bi-polar behaviors. It’s not a straightforward story. It is a story of hard-work and if you’ve read other celebrity chef memoirs, its unlike the others. I still wonder how he made it, but I loved that it became more like sitting with him and having him speak randomly about different things, like how he selected the music for his restaurants. As a teacher, I’d say he’s done a admirable job at self-assessment as a son and as a chef.
