This Is TASTE 387: Koreaworld with Alex Lau

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. Today we have Alex Lau in the studio. Alex is a food photographer who has shot covers and magazine spreads for some of the most interesting clients in the world—including traveling to Korea multiple times to work on Koreaworld. Alex spent four years working at Bon Appétit, and we get into his truly amazing journey from fashion closet intern to one of the most gifted shooters around. What a great talk.

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!
