This week’s podcast guest is freelance food writer/Top Chef Masters Judge:

FRANCIS LAM


We talk to him about how Biggie Smalls inspires his writing, the problem with Korean BBQ restaurants, and his first visit to Alinea (which doubled as a conversation about whether or not food is art.)  Plus we asked him about his infamous discussion with Chef Eddie Huang about whether or not it’s fair for chefs to cook other cultures’ foods, and how that relates to the music world.

Fresh Off the Boat - Miami, Part 2

Eddie links up with 2 Live Crew rapper Uncle Luke at Club Rol-Lexx in Opa-locka to taste what Luke thinks is the best BBQ in town. Guys come more for the food than the girls. After eating sauced up St. Louis-style ribs and smoked chicken, Eddie and the “Mayor of Miami” take a stroll to another of Luke’s hood favorites, the conch truck.

Q+A: Eddie Huang Comes to Bonnaroo

If you’re not familiar with Eddie Huang, he’s the chef of Baohaus in New York City, sometime TV personalityonetime proponent of Four Loko, and an outspoken author of his own blog and, next year, his own book with Random House. He’ll also be serving his own bao at the Bonnaroo music festival in Manchester, Tennessee, this weekend — for free, which might make him the most popular chef there. We talked to Huang before he left for the festival about cooking en masse, what he’d like to make for the Beach Boys, his Internet personality, and David Chang.

I wish that Americans didn’t have the need to cut off the narrative from the motherland and butcher our culture into components for a tasting menu. You can be successful like Xi’an Famous Foods or Baohaus serving largely unadultered food that is true to the pantry and palate with better messaging. Now, the discerning reader could say “Eddie, you love hip hop, that was the biggest commodifier.” Yes! But that’s why I love hip hop. It was the only moment I’ve seen in my lifetime where the villagers took the Man’s tools and proved Audre Lorde wrong. You CAN dismantle the Master’s House with the Master’s Tools, DJ Kool Herc showed us that.
