Korean cookbooks are enjoying a burst of popularity. How did we get here?
Fantastic article! Really enjoyed this read.
Terrific post. I learned so much! The first Korean cookbook I bought was Dok Suni. I loved the nostalgic layout, which included photos of family members. It was easy to cook from, and the recipes turned out well. I too went to Beverly Soon Tofu Restaurant after watching the Parts Unknown episode, and was distraught when the restaurant closed. Now I have a book to look forward to. Thank you for this valuable context, Helin Jung.
I love this piece (and Korean food!) so much. <3
