Koreatown: A Cookbook

In Koreatown, chef Deuki Hong and food writer Matt Rodbard explain that “Korean food is never, ever, a boring time.” Bright, bubbling, oftentimes funky and spicy, Korean mealtime is almost always a feast with a parade of complimentary small plates called banchan. There are nearly two million people of Korean heritage living in the US (nearly 230,000 Korean-Canadians live in this country). The Koreatown cookbook consists of 100 of the best recipes from Koreatowns across the US as well as stories and portraits of cooks, grocers and ice cream makers. The book’s images were captured “live” in the over 125 bars, markets and restaurants that Hong and Rodbard visited. Our favourites follow.
