The Dave Chang Show. Such an insightful show on so much more than just food.
I listened to Part 1 and Part 2 of the show with Chef Christina Tosi of Milk Bar, who is opening her flagship location in Los Angleles tomorrow (7150 Melrose, off of La Brea in Fairfax).
Whereas, Christina Tosi's Chef's Table episode centered around her Milk Bar years, the podcast shares their memories of the early years together at Momofuku Noodle Bar.
I did not know Christina Tosi played such an integral part in building the foundation of Momofuku.
They speak of how much of their current success is a result of this special bond they have together, which is likened to being siblings. They are not afraid to say something the other may not want to hear. And through this honesty, they are able to raise each other up by both, celebrating their abilities and pointing out their flaws.
David Chang is not David Chang without Christina Tosi; Christina Tosi is not Christina Tosi without David Chang.
Everytime they open a new restaurant, the DNA of the two are imprinted.
Every new restaurant location, a culmination of their growth through and with each other.
David Chang must feel like a proud brother, when he sees what Christina Tosi as done, at her newest location.
