Award-winning Chef & Restaurateur
Peter Chang, a highly awarded and world class chef, is considered by many to be the greatest Chinese chef cooking in America today. Chang began his career as an award-winning chef in the Chinese province of Hubei, before later moving to the United States to work as chef for the Chinese Embassy. Chang’s passion is to introduce authentic Chinese food to audiences who have never tasted “real” Szechuan style.
After being discovered by food critics Todd Kliman of the Washingtonian and Calvin Trillian of The New Yorker, Chang disappeared, moving from city to city as dedicated followers did their best to track his latest mysterious venture – from Northern Virginia to Atlanta, then to Knoxville, Tennessee, and Charlottesville before settling in Richmond. Along with partner Gen Lee, Chang’s roster of current restaurants has expanded from Richmond and Charlottesville to Fredericksburg, Arlington, Williamsburg, Virginia Beach and Rockville, Maryland.
Chang will be present for the screening of Cook Up A Storm, including hosting a post-film reception featuring a special tasting menu prepared in his Williamsburg restaurant.
