Reviews

“Simple, straightforward, and totally charming, Robin Ha’s Cook Korean! is yet another example of why every cookbook should actually be a comic book.” —Amanda Cohen, chef/owner Dirt Candy "Do you feel left out when all your cool friends mention their latest Korean food adventure talking about things like galbi, doenjang and different types of kimchi? Well, fear not, as Robin Ha made it her personal mission in her graphic novel cookbook filled with colorful illustrations, incredible stories, and insightful Korean recipes to not only educate but to instill confidence. So go pick up your copy of Cook Korean! and confidently engage in your next conversation about the hottest cuisine in America." —Deuki Hong, chef and author of Koreatown: A Cookbook "Cook Korean! is not just a wonderful collection of easy-to-follow recipes in comic form, it's also a delightful introduction to Korean culture.  I can't decide what's more mouthwatering--the food or Robin Ha's art!"  —Michael Cho, cartoonist and illustrator
