David Chang is a professional chef who made his big break when he opened his first New York restaurant Momofuku.

That restaurant's success led Chang to open several other restaurants around the world and he also gained global recognition with his cooking/travel docu-series Ugly Delicious and Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on Netflix. 

We obviously know a lot about the chef — but what about his better half?

Grace Seo Chang was born in Korea.

Her mother immigrated with her two children: Grace and her brother, whose name is unknown.


While there's little public information about her, through her Instagram page we can discern that she's an animal lover and enjoys traveling.

What does Grace Seo Chang do for a living?

It's unclear what the chef's wife current occupation is, but she's worked in fashion. She's also an excellent cook — perhaps that's what drew the couple together? — even though she never pursued it professionally.

In an interview, she revealed she's "as passionate about Korean food as she is about rescuing animals and beautiful clothing."

Grace proudly promotes her husband's work on her Instagram page as well, most recently she posted a picture of his memoir, Eat A Peach, which was published in September 2020.

How did Grace and David Chang meet?

The two met after Chang broke off his engagement with Gucci PR executive Gloria Lee in September of 2013.

The two began dating in 2016, then Grace and David eventually eloped in 2017.


Not many knew about the elopement but the owner of the sister bakery to David's restaurant Milk Bar "found out beforehand and sent a cake." How sweet — literally and figuratively!

David Chang's kids — how many does he have with Grace?

The married couple has one child, a son named Hugo. Model Chrissy Teigen was actually the one to accidentally spill the beans.

In November of 2018, when announcing David at the WSJ. Magazine’s Innovator Awards she mentioned the couple's pregnancy.

Their adorable little boy was born in March of 2019.

David hd a conversation with his wife on his podcast a week before Hugo was due. The happy 1 1/2-year-old can be seen eating tasty foods on David Chang's Instagram page often.
