Eddie Huang is an American chef, restaurateur, culinary TV show host, and author. He was born to Chinese–Taiwanese immigrant parents in Washington, D.C.

Eddie’s first eatery was a bun shop, BaoHaus, in Manhattan. Another restaurant he owned, Xiao Ye, was later closed down due to a controversy. His first autobiography, Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir, was turned into a popular TV series named Fresh Off the Boat by ABC.

He is all set to release the movie Boogie, which has been written and directed by him.
