David Chang Wins $1 Million for Southern Smoke on ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’

Chang selected the Southern Smoke Foundation, a nonprofit started by Houston-based chef Chris Shepherd, which, in recent years, has supported the hospitality industry during times of crisis and which Food & Wine has also tapped as one of our recommended avenues to help restaurants, chefs, and their staffs survive business and job losses due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
