Inside the Mind of David Chang!

We chat with chef David Chang about golf, the brutal first months of Momofuku and why he loves really good cheap food. Plus, we dive into the bizarre history of drinking around the world; Grant Barrett and Martha Barnette of “A Way With Words” give us a lesson on food names that double as cooking instructions; and we share a recipe for the best stewed beans you’ll ever make. (Originally aired September 18, 2020.)
