Lifestyle Network's Spice to Life Features Los Angeles' Trend-Setting Chef Michael Hung

REDWOOD CITY, CA --(Marketwired - April 15, 2016) - This week, Spice to Life explores Los Angeles, the city with one of the most expansive, rule-breaking food scenes with Chef Michael Hung. In this city, the quirk and authenticity of street food is as much a subject of discourse as fine dining. Discover these gems on the show's upcoming episode on Sunday, April 17 at 7:30pm Pacific.

Chef Michael Hung began his culinary career, doing extended stages at restaurants Daniel and Aquavit in New York. In San Francisco, he worked with the James Beard award-winning team of Traci Des Jardins at Jardiniere and became chef de cuisine at the Michelin One-Starred La Folie. He worked on Pixar's Academy Award-winning animation, Ratatouille, where he was credited as Menu Chef and Consultant, alongside legends Thomas Keller and Guy Savoy.

"The work I did for Ratatouille was to create a menu for the restaurant in the movie. I cooked all the dishes on the menu and the animators took pictures to create physical models and plot how the animation should work," shared Chef Michael Hung, featured chef on Spice to Life. The attention to detail was so keen that the characters in Ratatouille bear burns on their arms, those of Hung, emblematic battle scars for any chef.

Chef Hung also founded a philanthropic pop-up dinner series, Red Sparrow, while he earned a Masters in Fine Arts in creative writing. Most recently, he became the Executive Chef of Faith & Flower in Los Angeles, heralded by Esquire Magazine as one of the nation's Best New Restaurants and one of Los Angeles Magazine's Top 10 Best New Restaurants. At Faith & Flower, the menu items fully expressed the quintessence of his world travels, underscored his creative and business acumen, and are made with erudite execution.

"The layers of versatility of Chef Michael Hung are clearly expressed in his food," said Lifestyle Network channel head Aileen Paredes. "We are proud to shine the spotlight on yet another leader in our food movement, one who is unafraid to move the dial and push perceived limits."

Join Michael Hung in this Sunday's episode of Spice to Life where he takes audiences on a hunt for the tastiest finds in the city of the stars.
