Hailing from Hubei Province, China, Peter Chang is arguably the most celebrated Chinese chef in the United States. An award-winning chef and restaurateur, Chang is long celebrated for serving up some of the most crave-worthy and creative Chinese cuisine – ranging from hot and numbing Sichuan fare to a modern Chinese approach. More recently, he is striving to educate his diners on authentic and home-style dishes using traditional Chinese techniques.
Chang began his culinary career in China attending culinary school in Wuhan. In 2001 Chang made his way to the US after securing a position with the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC, and it was during his high-profile tenure there that he had the opportunity to cook for a wide range of luminaries including then President Hu Jintao.
Following his departure from the Chinese Embassy, Chang resurfaced as a featured guest chef at China Star in Fairfax, Virginia in 2003 and continued to frequently shift around as an executive chef at a number of restaurants located throughout Virginia and Tennessee. It was during this time that Chang began to attract and build a cult following of devout diners known as “Changians.”
Chang currently owns and operates 10 restaurants in Maryland, Virginia and Connecticut, including Mama Chang and Q by Peter Chang, with additional projects in the works.
Chef Chang has received praise from “The Washington Post,” “The New York Times,” “The New Yorker,” and “Travel & Leisure.” Chang is a two-time James Beard finalist for Best Chef in the Mid-Atlantic and continues to build his reputation as one of the most celebrated Chinese chefs in the United States.
