Eddie Huang

Chef/Author/TV Personality

Eddie Huang is a chef, writer, TV host, producer, fashion designer, speaker, and social advocate 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 NYC’s East Village and downtown LA.

Eddie has produced several projects under the moniker Fresh Off the Boat. It became the title of his groundbreaking travelogue web series with VICE Media, a genre bending venture of subcultures through the lens of food. He is currently hosting, writing and executive producing the series’ upcoming 4th season now rebranded Huang’s World and featured on the innovative television network VICELAND. Huang World is one of the highest rated shows on VICELAND and Eddie remains one of the the biggest stars on the network.

Eddie also adopted Fresh Off The Boat for his first book, a New York Times Bestseller. 20th Century Fox optioned the memoir and brought Eddie onboard to produce a sitcom of the same name, which remains one of the highest rated comedies on ABC. The show, 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 currently has an exciting development slate in the works which includes a one-hour drama with one of the best premium networks on cable, a weekly sports talk show with the premiere sports news network and a screenplay with one of the best up and coming film production companies.
