It’s incredibly surreal seeing your own book in the shops next to the likes of Jamie Oliver and Jose Pizarro!
About a year and a half ago, we were contacted by Anna, a literary agent who had tried our food at Street Feast. She’d loved it and thought we might have some other recipes up our sleeves to create a book. With her help, we secured a publishing deal with Octopus Publishing (who have published titles for Diana Henry, Pitt Cue Co, Sabrina Ghayour etc) and then we spent the next year or so testing A LOT of Korean recipes for our book K-Food.
Writing K-Food was an incredibly personal experience – as well as containing recipes (and handy tips) from my mum, we also explain the reasons why we chose each recipe, some history, culture and our own twists to traditional dishes that we’ve come up with through Busan BBQ. The recipes are a mix of the very traditional (kimchi jjigae) to fusion (chips on a stick), but they all have a place in a world where food and flavours increasingly overlap. These are the dishes that are delicious, fun and that we love to eat – so we hope you enjoy sharing them with your friends and family too.
Octopus Publishing did an amazing job on creating a really beautiful book – and with the help of our team David Munns, Victoria Allan, Annie Rigg and not forgetting Ben Weller (our photographer in Korea), K-Food has turned out to be better than we could have ever imagined.
If you’d like to order your copy, you can get hold of K-Food at most leading book shops and online here. Thanks to everyone that has bought a copy so far!
