EATING KOREAN: From Barbecue to Kimchi Recipes from My Home
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)

Because I can’t invite you into my kitchen, I wrote this book as a way to bring Korean food into your home. A memoir cookbook, it was one of the first Korean cookbooks written in English and includes over 100 family recipes. It also has personal stories of growing up both in the United States and in South Korea, family photos, cultural information and historic context.

OUT OF PRINT! Unfortunately, Houghton Mifflin Hartcourt has let my first book go out of print. Copies are available for outrageous prices on Amazon.


A practical guide to Seoul, this pocket-sized travel book includes useful maps, tons of little pictures and all the practical information you need to navigate this exciting city. I loved to share with you the hidden food alleys, 24-hour shopping districts, secret gardens and fancy hotels and home stay options of the city where I was born.

FROMMER’S SOUTH KOREA (Frommer’s), 3 editions

I traveled all over the countryside and put in miles and miles to bring you three editions of this travel guide. If you’ve ever wanted to know anything about the temples, mountains and culture of Korea, this is the book for you! I share with you everything from hole-in-the-wall dining options to upscale hotels where you can rest your traveler’s feet. OUT OF PRINT! You can get copies on Amazon for outrageously high prices.
