Reviews

"David Chang is one of the most beloved chefs on earth, but his inspiring memoir is not just for foodies. He's one of the most audaciously openhearted and honest humans you'll ever find. This book is for anyone who has ever felt like an underdog or an underachiever--or aspires to become an entrepreneur or a more decent person."--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

"Eat a Peach is not merely an autobiography of a great creative; rather, it's a compelling philosophy of a man who believes in a beautiful life beyond reach. It is profoundly gratifying to witness Chang marching uphill, step by step, toward his sublime vision. As Chang suffers, rages, and fights for his quest, we can't help but admire his vulnerability, courage, and conviction."--Min Jin Lee, author of Free Food for Millionaires and Pachinko, a finalist for the National Book Award

"Ever since I slurped my first Momofuku ramen bowl, I knew David Chang was a special chef. Now, with this soulful memoir, David has added another feather to his cap: brilliant writer. David is a personal hero--funny, wise, humble, and self-aware. With Eat a Peach, he puts words to so many of the things we all feel, sharing generously of his own journey, so we can all benefit in the process."--Chrissy Teigen, New York Times bestselling author of Cravings

"Dave Chang's writing is honest and vulnerable. As a child of immigrants, the DNA of his story spoke to me. Now I just have to keep up with his drive and tenacity!"--Hasan Minhaj, host of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj

"If you're looking for a cookbook, this is a terrible choice. Herein you will find the recipe for one of our brightest, most energetic, talented, and inspiring Americans (who also happens to be a chef). David Chang is a great storyteller with a great story to tell."--Jimmy Kimmel, host of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

"David Chang is one of the world's most creative chefs, but it wasn't obvious he would become that. I was absolutely enthralled by his underdog story, which he tells with passion, humor, and skill. Don't miss this incredible memoir!"--Brian Grazer, New York Times bestselling author of A Curious Mind and cofounder of Imagine Entertainment
