momofuku’s david chang improvises with space food

If you like, skip the stilted, overlong 2:22 minute set-up of this video about the food International Space Station astronauts eat…Jump right to 2:23 and Momofuku chef David Chang improvising with pouches of freeze dried shrimp, asaparagus and cheese grits (among other things) in an attempt to jazz up the fare for astronaut Chris Hadfield.  It is the ultimate in the always-entertaining chef’s challenge: “make a dish out of what’s in the fridge” (in this case, pouches).

And then stay tuned while Hadfield shows the one constraint Chang didn’t factor in: lack of gravity…and watch him gobble weightless asparagus.
