This Is TASTE 386: Koreaworld with Francis Lam

Koreaworld is here! It’s a new cookbook from Deuki Hong and TASTE’s Matt Rodbard, and this week we are looking at the modern Korean food movement from all angles. To kick things off, we are catching up with Francis Lam, editor in chief of Clarkson Potter and host of The Splendid Table. Francis is Deuki and Matt’s longtime editor, and he speaks about how they collaborated on the book. We also hear about Francis’s journey through journalism, including working in TV, in radio, and at the legendary Gourmet magazine. It’s great having Francis in the studio.

The Koreaworld crew is hosting book release events in New York City (April 24)Los Angeles (May 4)San Francisco (May 10), and many other cities. Check out all the cities and dates. See you out there!
