This Is TASTE 390: Koreaworld with Eater LA Editor Matthew Kang

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 a great interview that has been years in the making. Matthew Kang is the longtime editor of Eater LA and is plugged into all things in LA’s Koreatown. In this conversation, we get into the big topics of the day in Los Angeles and have a spirited NYC vs. LA Koreatown debate.

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!
