Eddie Lin

Lin began publicly documenting his kinky culinary crusades in the form of the food blog Deep End Dining around fall 2004. Almost immediately it began to receive critical attention; one of his entries was selected to be in the food anthology Best Food Writing. He is the author of Lonely Planet’s Extreme Cuisine, a guidebook about exotic foods around the globe, and his extreme-food exploits and essays have been covered by NPR, PBS, the Los Angeles Times, OC Weekly, BlackBook Magazine, Food & Wine, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, USA Today, and others. Lin is an on-air contributor and segment producer for KCRW's long-running Good Food and has appeared on Visiting with Huell Howser, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, Freakiest Foods, Eat St., KABC Eyewitness News's The Man Who Eats Everything, and CSI: NY. Recently Lin was tapped to be a guest judge on Top Chef Masters; his YouTube series, Kamikaze Kitchen, features unsuspecting chefs who are ambushed at their restaurants with a mystery ingredient.
