Treme: 'Make It Delicious Like That Fucking Fried Chicken'

New, 8 comments

Last night on Treme, Janette Desautel is still working at chef David Chang's restaurant Lucky Peach — a fictionalized hybrid of Momofuku Ko and Ssäm Bar — and makes a family meal of Chinese fried chicken and waffles. "Dave is gonna love this," said one of the cooks. "This is right in his happy place."

Indeed, he was correct, Chang was a fan and offers her "a chance to cook your own special dinner. Late-night affair, after service... once a week... But like Southern food. New Orleans food. Do your own take on it. Our own take it on it. Just make it delicious like that fucking fried chicken." Later, chef Donald Link (of Cochon, New Orleans) makes a cameo.
