Recipes from Seoultown Kitchen

Seoultown Kitchen

Debbie Lee gained a legion of fans as she reached the top three in season 5 of “The Next Food Network Star”—and now Los Angelenos line up at her hugely popular snack bar, Ahn-Joo, which means pub snacks in Korean. In her first book SEOULTOWN KITCHEN, Debbie shares recipes that reflect one of her favorite aspects of Korean culture: “pub grub.” These delicious—and simple—recipes allow anyone to bring these Asian “small plates” to the table. Debbie demystifies Asian cuisine for cooks at any level of expertise and shows that the flavor profiles of Korean dishes are actually very similar to those of Western palates.
