Koreatown at next cookbook club meeting in Squirrel Hill, November 13.

Koreatown by Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard will be featured at the November 13 meeting of the Dish! cookbook club at the Carnegie Library in Squirrel Hill. A summary, from the book's official site:
A trailblazing book featuring nearly 100 recipes, essays, profiles and documentary-style photography concentrating on many of the lesser-known aspects of Korean food, drink and culture. The book is co-written by Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard, two authorities in the exploding Korean food movement in the United States and abroad. Together Hong and Rodbard spent over two years traveling to the Koreatowns of the United States, researching the book and interviewing over 100 chefs and business owners. Once back in their New York City kitchens, they developed recipes that reflect traditional home and restaurant cooking — translated with historically rich (and entertaining!) notes and easy-to-follow directions.
The event is free but online registration is required.
