Food Network Needs Better Asian Representation
Duh, right? There isn’t a single show on the Food Network hosted by someone Asian, unless you count Iron Chef (and we don’t). Why must we watch non-Asian cooks who can’t pronounce “Sriracha” and don’t have a chopstick drawer show us how to make our own dishes? And how come, when they do, we have to watch as their entire family mocks it - like in this episode of The Pioneer Woman?
Come on, Food Network. With chefs like David Chang, Roy Choi, Anita Lo and Niki Nakayama out there - you can do better than this.
