A Slice of Korean History

A BIG THANKS to everyone who came to my lectures, signings and cooking classes. The book tour was a resounding success and it was a real pleasure to meet so many people interested in Korean food!

I wanted to share with you a gift I received from a lovely woman, who took one my cooking classes at J. Matheson in Everett, WA. Her husband had been stationed in Korea during the war and picked this up in Busan.
