Don’t Sweat It

I owe everything I know about cooking and food to two people: my mother and my grandmother. They always told me that cooking is not a hobby it is a life skill. Some of my greatest food memories are dishes they created. Savory, satisfying and delicious. Like most Korean households, our family dinner table was [...]

Blueberry Mint Fizz

If I could only eat three things for the rest of my life, blueberries would be one of them (followed by champagne and sushi) . I love all things blueberry.

Paris- how I miss you…

A friend of mine left for Paris today and asked me for recommendations. While I was more than happy to help and suggest places (my muses Laduree, Pierre Herme, La Maison du Chocolat), I didn’t want to give her a list that she felt obliged to stick to. My favorite part about Paris (like many [...]
