DANIELLE CHANG / CREATOR + HOST

Danielle is host of the Lucky Chow television series and the founder of the LUCKYRICE Festival, a nationwide showcase of Asian food culture in the U.S. For Lucky Chow, she has put together both iconic and rising star chefs to showcase the unprecedented interest in Asian culture today and the stories behind why our tastebuds are gravitating East. Born in Taipei, Danielle learned from an early age that food + family = a recipe for happiness. She learned how to make zongzi from her 98 year old Shanghai grandmother, grew up eating chicken feet in Houston when Asian food (and Asians) were a novelty, and then moved to the Bay Area for high school where NOT being Asian was a novelty.
