Bacon as well as Momofuku creator and chef, David Chang, sat down with GQ Editor at Large, Michael Hainey to discuss their creative process, the consequence of success or failure and anecdotal advice on how to achieve.

Similarly, David Chang's experience as a chef and entrepreneur has granted him wisdom in the pursuit of creative fulfillment.
