Dave Chang has a few questions. Besides being the chef of the Momofuku restaurants and the creator and host of Netflix’s 'Ugly Delicious,' Dave is an avid student and fan of sports, music, art, film, and, of course, food. In ranging conversations that cover everything from the creative process to his guest’s guiltiest pleasures, Dave and a rotating cast of smart, thought-provoking guests talk about their inspirations, failures, successes, fame, and identities.

We last spoke to chef Eunjo “Jo” Park mere days before the grand opening of Momofuku Kawi in Hudson Yards. Months later, Dave sits down with Jo to discuss all that has happened since the launch.
Gabriela Cámara wears many hats: chef-owner of a handful of iconic restaurants, cookbook author, subject of a Netflix documentary, social justice activist, and mother. She is also an adviser to the president of Mexico and was recently named to the Council of Cultural Diplomacy. Dave speaks to the culinary superstar about her career, Mexican cuisine, and much more.
Since the arrival of his child, Dave has become increasingly concerned with the viability of a tenable future for the next generation. He speaks with David Wallace-Wells, deputy editor of New York Magazine and author of ‘The Uninhabitable Earth,’ about the real danger of climate change that is already damaging humanity.
Travel often inspires a changed perspective on the world, especially in relation to the self. Dave speaks with Jada Yuan, the 2018 author of "The 52 Places Traveler" in 'The New York Times,' about her many travels and her takeaways from experiencing different cultures.
The culinary arts may seem to be only nominally related to the arts, but there are more similarities between the food world and the art world than you might think. Having already examined this connection with Jerry Saltz and Roberta Smith, Dave speaks with contemporary artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, whose work literally turns cooking into art.
The culinary arts may seem to be only nominally related to the arts, but there are more similarities between the food world and the art world than you might think. Having examined this connection with Jerry Saltz earlier this year, Dave delves even deeper into these parallels with New York Times chief art critic (and Jerry’s wife!) Roberta Smith.
Partnerships are tricky to navigate in any business structure, let alone a kitchen where everyone is bumping shoulders. But Jess Shadbolt and Clare de Boer of NYC's King restaurant work so seamlessly together that their symbiosis outweighs any friction. Dave speaks with the two British chefs about the dynamics of co-running a restaurant and the paradoxical complexity in making seemingly simple dishes.
It's not often two masters of any craft join forces to collaborate, let alone open up an entire complex together. So when Pizzeria Bianco’s Chris Bianco and Tartine’s Chad Robertson clasped hands to create The Manufactory in Los Angeles, the culinary world lit up with excitement. Dave speaks to them about pioneering in their respective fields and how their partnership came about.
When Dave and Grace first found out they would be parents, they realized nothing mattered more than the arrival of their first child and changed everything in anticipation. A week before Grace gave birth to their son, the Changs discussed the many trials and tribulations of the pregnancy.
It's difficult to describe Momofuku Seiobo without it sounding a little odd. The three-hatted restaurant is located inside a massive casino in Sydney, Australia. Named after a Japanese goddess, it serves Caribbean cuisine using Australian produce. It's also widely considered one of the country's top restaurants—it's currently ranked the no. 2 restaurant in all of Australia by Gourmet Traveller. Dave speaks with executive chef Paul Carmichael and general manager Kylie Javier Ashton on how the Seiobo team broke through with an atmosphere of freedom and independence.
