Food is magical, and my food, often comes with stories.
My name is Holly.
I am the chief editor, photographer, writer, recipe developer, cook, and CEO (and any other title you can think of) behind this blog.
I was born and raised in the southern tip of South Korea, in a lovely fishing town called Tong-Young. I came to the United States to study. I met my wonderful husband in college and the rest is history. We have lived in many places – Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Argentina – and traveled all around the world as a family. We currently live in
Virginia, USA with two almost grown-up children and an adorable Labradoodle named Nabi.
Perhaps my passion of cooking came from traveling around the world and the exposure I had to different cultures and cuisines. I respect, admire, and enjoy tastes from all over the world, especially Asian food, and I never stop trying new flavors. At the end of the day, though, when I need some comfort, I always look for Korean food, the food of my home country.
In 2010, I started blogging as a keepsake of my personal recipes as an inheritance for my children. Someday when I am no longer with them, they will remember the food they ate at home, and be able to make it themselves. That’s why my blog provides detailed step-by-step instructions. This is my gift for them, and they better get it right!

It is awesome to be able to communicate with people through food. Do you feel inspired to cook up something Korean tonight? I will show you how.
Welcome to my world of Korean, Asian, global cooking and beyond!
