The Author Chung Jae Lee was born in the busy city of Seoul many moons ago and food has always been a huge factor in his life. Koreans love to eat and it must be delicious. Chung's mother was a strong inspiration for him with her talent to whip up something in the kitchen extremely fast, healthy and delicious with fresh produce. Brought up in a family surrounded by food his parents were involved in restaurants, bars and green grocers and as a child growing up Chung would find his way to their restaurant and curl up on the tables and have a sleep waiting for his parents to finish work at their restaurant. As Chung developed a love of food at a very young age he learned from his father who grew fruit and vegetables in pots and learned about Korean ingredients while growing up in Seoul. Like all Asian countries eating on the streets is a must and part of the culture and a lot of inspiration for Chung's recipes and Korean style of cooking has developed from his childhood memories. In 2008 Chung was featured on the SBS show Food Safari featuring Korean Cuisine which opened doors for Chung and established his showcase of Korean food internationally.
