Dan Nakamura + David Chang

For the December 2014 issue of The California Sunday Magazine, celebrated chef David Chang and legendary musician and producer Dan “the Automator” Nakamura spent some time catching up in an intimate and hilarious Thread. The two friends dished about everything—covering some of the remarkable highs and inevitable lows from both their personal and professional lives. Since much of their discussion focused on specific friends, experiences, and meals they’d shared over the past decade, we are pleased to present their Thread: Unspooled—an annotated examination of their exchange featuring illuminating links and commentary that dive deeper into what makes David and Dan tick.
