Eddie is getting ready to take the baton from Anthony Bourdain and make us proud. If you’re not familiar with Eddie Huang, you are doing yourself a disservice. This Lawyer-Chef-Author-TV personality is as down to earth and authentic as it gets. His autobiography, Fresh Off The Boat, depicts his struggle as an immigrant (something quite a few members of our staff definitely relate to). Huang finally comes into his element when he encounters Hip Hop culture. Eddie’s no angel, and that’s his charm. This book is honest, entertaining, funny, and a must read for foodies, immigrants, and outcasts alike. Amazon gave it 4 stars, we give it 5.
