Chef Dynasty: House of Fang is a limited series on Food Network that which when premiered on 27 December 2022 brought to its audience a look at the legacy of a father-daughter duo in the restaurant industry. Chef and restaurateur Kathy Fang starred on the show serving authentic Chinese dishes alongside her father, Peter Fang.
Kathy’s father is the renowned chef/owner at House of Nanking (HONK), a popular Chinese eatery in San Francisco. So, aside from the food, she ate at home, Kathy also grew up in the restaurant industry. When her parents opened the restaurant, she was just 7, and because they could not “really” afford daycare she had to spend all of her waking hours in the restaurant. So, naturally, she just fell in love with food, its flavors, and smells, but when it was time, the Chopped Season 27 champion chose a husband completely out of her food league. Yes, she is married. And her husband is Caleb Sima, who has found fame rather in the tech industry.
Meet Caleb Sima, Chef Kathy Fang’s Husband
Several years after getting married to Caleb Sima, Chef Kathy Fang has gotten even more fond of her husband and vice-versa. They tied the knot sometime after Caleb successfully popped the question in 2014. While we do not know the exact year of their wedding, we know they celebrate it every year on the 29th of May. And on these occasions, Kathy expresses her feelings as something like — she is always so thankful for Caleb coming into her life. In her eyes, he is an “amazing” husband, father, son-in-law, and so much more.
The two started dating around the 2010s after they met in San Francisco. Then, after a failed attempt at proposing during their trip to Paris in 2013, Caleb decided to do it all over again. So, the next year, he planned to do it more consciously in San Francisco. Wanting food to be at the center of their special night, Caleb enlisted one of Kathy’s favorite chefs, Chef Gary Danko, to help him surprise her with a pretend holiday party. He arranged for a car to pick everyone up and Kathy thus realized the event was impeccably done with interiors that were more romantic, sophisticated, and sexy than “holiday festive”. So, that way, he asked her to marry him and she agreed this time. Of all things Kathy was taken aback that he did it right above the city she grew up in and was born in.
