Curated Cuisine is a monthly series examining all things edible, from the chefs cooking the food to the writers reviewing the recipes. Meet the people shaping the food industry, both local and national and enjoy a post-show bite inspired by the conversation.
Joanne Lee Molinaro, better known as the Korean Vegan, uses plant-based cooking to refresh and re-inspire classic Korean cuisine. A lawyer-turned New York Times best-selling author, she found a home on TikTok sharing 60 second recipes, commentary on social justice issues and stories about her family's immigrant journey from North Korea.
Join us for a conversation with Molinaro about her take on Korean food, her status as a vegan icon and her wildly popular TikTok videos. Irene Li, co-founder of Mei Mei Restaurant Group and Prepshift, moderates. In-person attendees will enjoy a bite from Molinaro’s cookbook after the conversation.
Copies of Molinaro’s cookbook, "The Korean Vegan Cookbook: Reflections and Recipes from Omma’s Kitchen" will be available for purchase at the event. Molinaro will sign books after the conversation. Virtual ticket holders can purchase the book from our bookstore partner Brookline Booksmith here.
This event is co-produced by Boston University Metropolitan College Programs in Food & Wine.
