Plot Synopsis

CHEF DYNASTY: HOUSE OF FANG is a six-episode docuseries that follows chef and restaurateur Kathy Fang, as she serves Chinese fusion dishes that challenge conventional culinary ideas at Fang, the restaurant she co-owns in San Francisco with her father Chef Peter Fang. Kathy grew up immersed in food culture at her father's iconic Chinatown restaurant House of Nanking. As an adult, Kathy's concept for modernizing menus, risk taking and embracing young influencers doesn't always go over well with the more traditional Peter, who has been called "the godfather of Chinese cuisine," and she is constantly trying to convince him that they must innovate in order to expand and achieve what she coins "Chinese cuisine world domination." Episodes include:

"Old School, New Food" (Tuesday, December 27, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT): Chef Kathy Fang is taking her San Francisco-based restaurant, Fang, to new heights in Chinese cuisine. Kathy's father and business partner is Peter Fang, one of the city's most-elite chefs and owner of the famous House of Nanking. She must convince him that a modernized menu will help her expand and achieve what she coins as, "Chinese cuisine world domination." A private dinner for social influencers puts Kathy's new ideas to the test, but only if her guests, including Peter, approve of her changes.

"One Night Only" (Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT): Chef Kathy Fang continues to push boundaries on traditional Chinese cuisine by offering guests a special "one night only" menu filled with risky fusion dishes that rattle her father. In her attempt to add some of these new dishes to the menu permanently, Kathy fears disappointing her father who is averse to change. Then, she attempts to inspire unity among her fractured Fang staff through team building and bonding at the Dragon Boat Festival on San Francisco's Bay.

"New Chef on the Block" (Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT): Chef Kathy Fang hires a new chef at her restaurant so she can focus on her expansion efforts, which include an elite private event hosted by Kristi Yamaguchi at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. Kathy is pushed outside of her comfort zone working in a kitchen that does not meet her culinary standards while also having to trust the new chef to operate at Fang without her. Any slight misstep is an opportunity for Peter to nix her expansion plans.

"Fully Booked" (Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT): At one of the biggest events of her career, Kathy Fang and her team work a multi-day San Francisco tech convention that brings thousands of professionals into Fang. Adding extra pressure is a 500-person party with her husband, Caleb, headlining. For the first time ever, Kathy opens all three floors of the restaurant, putting her expansion plans to the ultimate test. Kathy needs her staff to work double shifts and must even hire an additional serving team to pull off this enormous culinary endeavor.

"Peter's Last Straw" (Tuesday, January 24, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT): Kathy Fang gets an opportunity to do a private event for the Festival Napa Valley, where she must impress the festival executives and donors with a formal five-course meal to be paired with the winery's selections. As Kathy explores more opportunities outside of the restaurant, she makes a dubious business decision without Peter's permission, causing a major fight. At his wit's end, Peter starts to question Kathy's priorities and loyalty to the family restaurant legacy. Meanwhile, a major mistake by Long puts his future at Fang in jeopardy.

"Legacy or Loyalty" (Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT): As Kathy sees her dreams coming to fruition, she is at a major crossroads with her father. To show her appreciation and respect for the legacy he has created, Kathy plans a surprise block party for her father's restaurant, House of Nanking, which has been named a landmark restaurant. Kathy hopes that this gesture will reaffirm her father's faith in her while also getting his blessing to continue the expansion. Meanwhile, tensions between Long and Lillian implode and force Kathy to make a major decision.
