Best meal I ever ate:
It's not one meal, just my mom making kimbab for me twice a year, when I visit her in Korea or she visits me in NY. It makes me happy.
My current drink of choice:
Drinking raki as a way of pretending I am in Istanbul...
I really wish I could:
be Paula Wolfert
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
My mom's strange yet delicious potato starch-battered fried chicken
My favorite comfort food:
Korean rice cake and dumpling soup
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
I cook more than I eat out, so I'll list my favorite food stores: Sahadi's in Brooklyn, Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley obviously, and the Alemany Farmers' Market in San Francisco
My most tattered cookbooks:
Bittman's "How to Cook Everything," and trying to teach myself from Paula Wolfert, Judy Rodgers, and Molly Stevens
