We love it when sites we dig do extra-smart stuff, so we were thrilled when our pals at Chow.com offered us a sneak preview of the 2011 edition of The Chow 13, going live tonight.

Last year, the site honored sumptuously profane Twittervixen Ruth Bourdain, heirloom vegetable evangelist Chef Sean Brock, and bad-ass Brooklyn butcher Tom Mylan.

This year's list will post later today, but we're thrilled to announce that our friend Eddie Huang has made the cut this year. He's co-hosted one of our Secret Suppers and graced the pages of Eatocracy with musings on cultural identity, food writers, late-night meals, Four Loko, Tiger Moms and lessons learned from a zero-star New York Times review.

Here's why Chow digs Eddie Huang as a chef using social media smartly:

Food says so much about where you’ve come from, where you’ve decided to go, and the lessons you’ve learned. It’s geography, politics, tradition, belief and so much more. World-renowned chef, author and Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain visits Los Angeles' Koreatown in the next episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," airing Sunday, April 21, at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Twitter and Facebook. This story ran in 2011, and we're sharing it again as Bourdain explores the role of food in Asian-American identity.

Eddie Huang is the chef of Baohaus in New York City and is working on a memoir which will be published by Random House. Follow him on Twitter @MrEddieHuang

Sundays are for Dim Sum. While the rest of America goes to church, Sunday School, or NFL games, you can find Chinese people eating Cantonese food. As a kid, there were a lot of Chinese traditions I couldn’t get into, but Dim Sum and Johnnie Walker were okay in my book. We’d wake up, put on our hand-me-down Polo shirts, and as Dad did his best Bee Gees on the Karaoke machine, we got ready for Dim Sum.

5@5 - Eddie Huang (part deux)

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Remember waaaaaaaaaay back yesterday when we told you Eddie Huang, BaoHaus owner and "Fresh Off the Boat" blogger, had acquired somewhat of a "bad boy" reputation in the culinary world? It's not entirely unmerited - he's known to dabble in la vida loko.

Most of us - twenty-one and over, bien sur - have had our fair share of Late Night Cheeseburger Doritos, piled high pastrami sandwiches and drive-thru buckets of fried chicken. We could tell you about it, but we'll let Eddie do the honors.

Some have labeled Eddie Huang "a bad boy," the next Anthony Bourdain - to us, he's just Eddie Huang. There's no other way to describe him.

Sure, he enjoys himself the occasional Four Loko, but the boy also makes a mean dorade and can write like no one's business - as evidenced in his blog "Fresh Off the Boat."

For those of you less familiar with our favorite Baron of Baos, he's the owner of BaoHaus in New York City. He also famously published his mother's e-mail response on his blog after Sam Sifton's zero-star New York Times review of his now-closed restaurant Xiao Ye. (You might need this information later - just sayin'.)

Amy Chua's parenting memoir, 'Battle Hymn of a Tiger Mother' delves into the extreme measures she and some other Asian parents take to ensure their children's success later in life. In the book, Chua asserts that American parents allow too many luxuries and distractions to the path of progress, and outlines in unflinching detail the rigors she imposed on her own children's study, music practice and even birthday card making.

While seemingly much of this effort is geared toward producing doctors and lawyers, sometimes the best laid plans can take a slight turn. Eddie Huang, who famously published his mother's e-mail rebuke after he received a zero-star review of his restaurant in the New York Times, indeed earned that law degree. Then he chucked it all and opened a restaurant - for which he both credits and (lovingly) blames his parents.
